Finlay's birthday party takes place with a pirate theme. Violet's working in the Rovers when she suddenly feels hot and dizzy. Jamie takes her to hospital. She's given the all clear but Sean feels guilty for not being there. David spots Audrey, Bill and Eileen going into No.8. He's hurt when he realises they're having a family get-together without him. David stares in at his family through the window. Sarah's unnerved and insists that Jason draws the curtains. As Sarah and Jason discuss their wedding plans, Gail goes outside to talk to David. Jerry surprises Eileen telling her he's booked them a meal and a night at a hotel in Cheshire for her birthday. Jodie's quietly furious realising that she's been lumbered with babysitting Finlay and her date with Lloyd is scuppered. Gail brings David into the house much to Sarah's annoyance and explains they're discussing wedding plans. Sarah bluntly tells David he's not invited. Claire thaws towards Ashley slightly and lets him stay at No.4 for the night on the sofa. Jodie moans to Lloyd about Jerry's selfish behaviour and explains she can't make their date. She kisses him on the lips before leaving. David's hurt at being excluded from Sarah's wedding and vows that if he's not invited he'll make sure the wedding doesn't take place.
