Kevin quizzes Chesney about nicking Rosie's car and frogmarches him round to No.4. Chesney apologises to Sally and explains how he hates John Stape and his plan was to drive to the prison, give him the ring back and punch him. Rosie wants to know what Michelle's got that she hasn't. Luke fails to take Rosie seriously and she leaves the Rovers in a huff. Gail searches frantically for Joe. She asks Audrey if she's seen him. Luke bumps into Michelle and she invites him back to No.7. Joe breaks into the Medical Centre and sets the alarm off. He's in a terrible state and sweating profusely as he takes a sledgehammer to the alarm; but still the noise continues. Audrey tries to talk some sense into Gail telling her that Joe's unstable and unreliable. Meanwhile, Gail realises the Medical Centre alarm is going off. Joe smashes up the pharmacy in a desperate search for his drugs. Gail discovers her Medical Centre keys are gone from her handbag and with a sense of foreboding rushes down the Street. Jason and Tina buy No.12 at auction at a cost of £54,750. Gail finds Joe tearful and shaking in the Medical Centre. She's devastated as she surveys the damage.
