Kevin drops off baby Jack's dummy for DNA testing and nervously awaits the results. John finds a florists' receipt in Chesney's trouser pocket. He tells Charlotte that he reckons Chesney must have seen them disposing of Colin's body. Charlotte tries to argue but John's convinced that Chesney knows their dark secret.

In an attempt to scupper Nick and Leanne's new bar, Steve and Betty report them to Environmental Health saying they've a problem with rats. Janice gives Michelle some lip but Michelle's quick to slap her down. Sean skives off work early telling the girls it'll be fine because Michelle's a mate. John's scared witless as he confronts Chesney with the florists' receipt. Chesney's annoyed that John's been through his things. Fiz arrives and wonders what they're rowing about. Chesney tells them how he ordered some flowers for Katy. John's so relieved he laughs hysterically. John's unnerved when the phone rings but there's nobody there.
