Carla hears a noise in the factory. It unnerves her and she leaves. Jimmy follows her back to her flat. Carla lets herself in and Jimmy waits outside. Carla phones Tony and tells him to come round to the flat instead to sort out the factory paperwork. Tony's shocked but relieved she's still alive. As Maria, Audrey, Barry, Helen, Kirk, Michelle, Fiz and Ryan enjoy christening drinks at No.7, Tony tries to disguise his inner turmoil. Tony tells Maria he's going to get a breath of fresh air. He jumps in his car and sets off for Carla's flat. Jimmy presses the door buzzer and Carla lets him in thinking he's Tony. She's scared when she realises it's Jimmy. Jimmy makes it clear he's going to kill Carla. She tries to defend herself but Jimmy pins her down in an attempt to strangle her. However Tony suddenly bursts in and Jimmy loosens his grip. Carla smacks him round the head with a candlestick. Jimmy lies motionless on the floor. Tony lets Carla think she's killed him but Tony can see that he's still alive. Tony promises Carla that if she keeps quiet and disappears he'll dispose of the body and nobody need know she's a murderer. Carla leaves for the airport. Jimmy regains consciousness and Tony tells him that if he keeps his head down they're both in the clear as Carla will never go to the police. Tony arrives home and Maria watches him fondly as he makes up a bottle for baby Liam.
