As Tyrone is about to make his way to the front of the church to deliver his reading, Cathy demands to know if Roy really wants to marry her as she overheard his conversation with Tyrone and Brian on her Dictaphone. She asks the vicar to clear the church. Faye returns home and tells Anna and Kevin the news about the wedding. She's nonchalant about the move to No.13. With everyone gone from the church, Cathy asks Roy why he asked her to marry him when he didn't want to. He tells her that he wanted to keep his word to her. She's understanding and tells him she's setting him free of his obligations, wanting him to be happy by being just good friends but she's torn within. The guests gather at the bistro.

Michelle tells Steve that she's decided to make amends with Leanne as Liz suggested. An angry Steve orders Liz not to interfere any more.

Having packed a bag to move into No.6 with Alex, Cathy tells Roy that she still loves him but he doesn't know how to respond to her. Anna delivers Christmas cards but one of them is another poison pen letter for Phelan. From across the street, he watches her post it through No.11's door.
