Owen continues to vent his fury on Gary, Izzy and Katy. Chesney's stunned at Katy's plans as it's the first that he's heard about it. Owen lunges at Gary and Anna pulls him back, pointing out that it's no way to behave at a christening. Michelle tells Steve that if their relationship is going to work they have forget about Tracy - she's not part of their future. Rob has a word with Steve and warns him not to mess Michelle around. Chesney's deeply concerned with the surrogacy plans. Rob summons Karl into the office and sacks him for messing up the deliveries. Eva glances smugly at Karl on his way out and he realises that she must have set him up. Anna gives Owen a talking-to and makes him see that he overreacted. She insists he tries to find some middle ground with Izzy and Katy. Paul's sick of the noise coming from No.13 where Kevin is busy doing up the house. He bangs on the door to complain and a slanging match ensues. Chesney tells Katy that he's not happy with her offering to be a surrogate mother for Izzy and she should have discussed it with him first. Karl tells Sunita that he's lost his job, he's a failure and she'd be better off without him. Sunita assures him that she loves him and will stick by him, come what may. Owen apologises to Izzy for kicking off at the christening but makes it clear that he's dead against the surrogacy plans. Izzy's furious and tells Owen that when the baby is born, he's having nothing to do with it and as far as she's concerned, he's dead to her.
