The surgeon explains to Kevin that Sophie has a fractured spine and needs an operation. Mary insists that no alcohol was sold in café and customers brought their own. Roy angrily accuses Mary of abusing his trust and violating his home. Mary feels terrible. Whilst Jason and Aiden pop out for chips, there's a charged moment between Maria and Marcus until each looks away uncomfortably. Sally arrives at the hospital. She's devastated to hear the news about Sophie. Gary apologises to Tommy for going on about the baby. Tommy explains how he just finds it hard to handle. Sophie regains consciousness. Under pressure from Kevin, Sophie admits that she was with Ryan who was playing chicken on the dual carriageway. A dishevelled Ryan arrives home. Michelle's relieved but angry and demands to know how Sophie ended up being run over. Roy calls in the bistro and apologises to Nick for any problems that Mary's caused. He tells Nick how he's been accused of illegally selling alcohol. Kevin barges his way into Michelle's flat and punches Ryan telling him that Sophie may never walk again because of him and all because he was high on drugs. Gloria and Lewis arrive back from a great evening at the dog track. It's clear that Gloria is quite smitten. Realising that Kylie must have reported Mary for selling alcohol, Nick's furious with her and insists she retracts her accusation first thing on Monday morning. Michelle assures Ryan that everything is Tracy's fault, not his. If he hadn't been upset over Tracy's pregnancy lies then none of this would have happened.
