Molly phones an ambulance and Tyrone goes to find Paul. Wiki's knicker party takes place. Roger calls in but quickly leaves when the girls suggest he could model the underwear for them. A crowd has gathered outside No.9 and Jack breaks the news that Vera's died. The paramedics take Vera out to the ambulance. Maria tells Liam she's arranged for them to go and look at a wedding venue at the weekend. She's put out when Liam tells her he's going to a trade fair with Carla and she'll have to postpone the appointment. Carla can see Maria's worried.
