Maddie asks for £50 in exchange for "finding" it. Anna announces Hayley's death in the Rovers. A shocked Fiz and Tyrone rush to the cafe. Sean turns off the music in the Rovers as a sign of respect. Examining Hayley, Dr. Akhtar tells Roy that she was too weak to carry on and her body shut down. Fiz feels she's lost her chance to tell Hayley what she meant to her. Roy tells her "sorry" - his first word since Hayley's death. Carla reminds him to contact the undertaker and have Hayley's body taken away. Roy refuses, saying she belongs with him and not alone in a morgue, but he agrees when Fiz puts it to him delicately, and Carla tells him Hayley will stay with him in his heart. Sophie decides to pay Maddie. Roy says a last goodbye to Hayley and kisses her before her body is taken away. The Rovers drinkers salute Hayley. Fiz, Tyrone, Carla and Chesney are reluctant to leave Roy but he insists that they all go. Nick runs Leanne a bath and cooks her a meal but she isn't feeling romantic.
