Nathan plans another party for his friends and tells Bethany to be there. Mary returns from the Lakes early to attend to her mother. Tracy receives the funds to buy the shop. Kate worries about Johnny when he tells her he's been buried in wedding planning all morning only for Jenny to complain that he hasn't helped out at all. At the bistro, the guests keep confusing the naming ceremony for a christening. Nick is conspicuously absent from the proceedings. Sarah looks for him at the Rovers, informing Liz about the naming ceremony in the process. Liz assumes that Leanne didn't invite her or Steve and gets changed in order to attend, dragging Steve with her. Sarah picks up a leaflet for a wedding fayre from Jenny and suggests to Bethany that they go together, desperate to spend time with her daughter. David finds Nick wallowing in misery at his flat. He's found a restaurant receipt for the time Leanne purportedly saw Peter, proving that she lied to the police. David asks why he's trying to wreck his life when he has everything going for him. Adam worries that suspicion will fall on him again now that the other Barlows have been cleared and decides to go after Daniel. Norris returns, sporting a neck brace. He tells Tracy and Amy that he was attacked by birds and slipped on a cow pat and that Mary abandoned him in a local hospital. He expects Mary to nurse him by way of apology. David tells the guests that Nick has taken ill. Liz discovers that Steve turned down an invitation to the naming ceremony on her behalf. When Liz and Gail bicker over Oliver's parentage, Simon tells them to shut up, saying that kids aren't prizes to be won in a raffle, and just because Lucy died, it doesn't make Leanne any the less his mother. The ceremony goes ahead without Nick. Bethany is keen to go to the wedding fayre and asks Nathan to postpone the party. He masks his fury. Anna catches Faye at No.13 and hopes she's come home but she's only collecting some of her things. Nick confronts Leanne with the receipt and tells her not to come running to him if the police catch up with her.
