Toyah confronts Maria about John. She admits that it is true, and manages to unknowingly imply to Toyah that he forced himself on her. Maria confronts Fiz about the fact that she told Toyah everything. It dawns on Maria that she has led Toyah to believe that John raped her. Toyah enters John's classroom and reveals she has found out about his antics with Maria. Sarah and Todd coyly decide to have sex and retire upstairs. Toyah tells John that she thinks he raped Maria, and, when he denies it, she savagely attacks him whilst spilling the details of her own rape. Toyah eventually calms down and John forces her to see that Maria never actually said that he had raped her. Joe catches Karen in the corner shop, bunking off work, but goes on to tell her in his anger about his trouble with Mike and the offer from Stuart Fletcher. John coldly tells Toyah that she has problems and that he wants nothing more to do with her now that she has accused him of rape. Toyah evidently is distressed as he is showing no remorse. Ciaran reveals to Roy that he is going to set up a rival cafe in the empty unit next door. Roy tells Hayley that her friend Ciaran is setting up a cafe in opposition. Joe tells Mike that he is leaving to work for Stuart Fletcher. Toyah tells Janice about what has happened with John, and reveals that her real upset has come from her realisation that her rape will affect her forever.
