Daniel prefers to battle his demons himself. Jenny slashes her wedding dress with scissors when Eva shows it to her in the Street. Eva, Aidan and Kate are amazed to hear that Johnny has finished with her. Kate tries to find out the real reason he did so. She doesn't swallow his lie that his health scare made him take stock of his life, forcing him to admit that the neurologist diagnosed him with multiple sclerosis. Aidan tells Maria he's chosen her and is going to finish with Eva. Jenny thinks it's her fault that everyone leaves her. Johnny tells Kate that he's exhibited symptoms of MS for years, including optic neuritis on the night her mother died which prevented him from seeing the car which hit her.

After throwing Kate out, Johnny stumbles and hits his head on the coffee table, rendering him unconscious. Ken asks Tracy to visit Daniel. She doesn't care about Daniel's well-being and makes excuses. David shuts the door in Gail's face when she asks after a sick Max.
