Maria clambers down to Liam but he's barely conscious. She finds his mobile but it's smashed in the fall. Realising she has no choice, Maria heads off into the darkness alone to get help leaving Ozzy whimpering next to Liam's motionless body. John tries to talk Fiz round but she knows she'll never be able to trust him again and tells him it's over for good. John leaves crestfallen. Michelle lies to Ryan telling him the police have caught his stalker so he no longer needs a 24-hour escort. Steve's unhappy about lying to Ryan but goes along with it for Michelle's sake. Harry apologises on Dan's behalf to Blanche and insists she's still welcome in the bookies. Maria stumbles on in the dark, panic-stricken and tearful until she finally spots their hotel in the distance. Jason apologises to Becky for having a go at her. Becky forgives him. Jason listens to a message from Sarah telling him to get his act together and join her in Italy. Jason's angry and frustrated. Maria arrives in the hotel reception frozen and in a state of shock. She tells the hotel manager and receptionist what's happened and the manager alerts the mountain rescue team. Chesney's worried about Fiz. He tells her that he and Schmeichel love her and Fiz gives her brother an emotional hug. Liam lies unconscious on the mountainside whilst Ozzy whimpers by his side.
