A stunned Charlie tries to get up, but falls to his knees. Tracy comes down hard again with the ornament. She grabs a knife from the kitchen and comes for Charlie. The noise from No.6 causes Claire to rush to No.1 for help. Deirdre, Peter and Ken knock on the door causing Tracy to rethink her actions. She places the knife in Charlie's hand and cuts herself with it. As the commotion begins to build outside, Peter threatens to break the door down. Tracy strews her clothes everywhere and makes it look like a struggle has taken place. She phones 999 and opens the door just as Peter is about to break in, saying she thinks she's killed Charlie. As the police and an ambulance arrive, people start to collect on the street and the rumour that Charlie is dead starts to circulate. Tracy tells her family that Charlie came at her with a knife when she told him she was leaving. Trying to claim self-defence, she wonders whether the second hit will harm her defence. Blanche has missed it all however, as she fell asleep in the bath. Norris tries to get some information from the police, but things are up in the air. Sarah calls Jason to let him know about the attack. The paramedics discover a pulse on Charlie. The crowd continue to talk about Charlie. Norris is worried because Charlie owed five weeks on his papers. There isn't much sympathy from Audrey, as Jason arrives to see the carnage. The police take Tracy in for questioning, as Charlie is brought out on a stretcher. The onlookers are mostly surprised, but Tracy can't believe that Charlie is still alive.
