Tracy doesn't know how to respond to Rob. She stalls by reminding him that he confessed to killing Tina and that everyone back home will know his release is a miscarriage of justice. When he presses her for an answer, she suddenly remembers Amy's concert and dashes away. The Barlows return early from the concert; Amy got stage fright and refused to play. Hope is put on a drip. David asks Eva out for a drink in front of Kylie to show that he now considers himself single. Tracy arrives home and says the bus broke down. Steve has called Michelle and told her he won't be home for Christmas as Andy has broken his leg. Kate and Aidan take delivery of a ping-pong table and tell Johnny they've entered the factory into a tournament against O'Driscolls. Anna and Kevin arrive at the bistro for their dates with Glen and Joanne. Robert thinks Tracy forgot about Amy's concert, causing her to row with him. When Leanne tells them off, Tracy has a go at her and is livid when Robert defends Leanne. Anna doesn't enjoy her date as dour Glen is still in love with his ex-wife. Kevin has a better time with chatterbox Joanne, despite initial nervousness on her part. Tracy calls Rob and tells him she'll be there for him when he gets out. Rob reveals to his cellmate Ian Rigby that he's lying to Tracy and plans to involve Robert in his scheme. Fiz is resigned to Hope being in hospital over Christmas, meaning she'll miss the street being turned into Lapland. Rob keeps calling No.1 until Robert answers. Kevin agrees to a second date with Joanne and the pair share a kiss, while Anna is glad to get away from Glen. Finally getting hold of Robert, Rob introduces himself and says he has information regarding Tracy. He tells him to expect a visiting order at the bistro and not to say anything to Tracy.
