At the police station, Anna denies pushing Seb off his ladder. She admits that she argued with Seb earlier that day but swears she's never set foot inside the solicitors' office. DC Fry and DC Macmillan show Anna the earring recovered from the firm's vacuum cleaner, which she confesses is hers. Rita realises that she can't leave the Street and tells Adam she's pulling out of the flat sale. Gemma uses a dating app to meet up with a guy called Niall in the Rovers. Anna remembers that she lost the earring when she was fighting with Phelan and surmises that he planted it at the solicitors to frame her. The police are sceptical but she is released without charge. Peter and Jude hear Niall making unflattering comments about Gemma to a mate on the phone. They realise he's only using her for sex and inform her. Rita tells her friends she's not selling after all and replaces Johnny's bottle of whisky to apologise for outstaying her welcome. Peter ejects Niall from the pub. PC Heywood sees the fracas as she's dropping Craig off and intervenes. Craig checks the time in the car before rendering assistance, allowing Niall to flee. Gary tells Nicola he wants her to have an abortion. She throws him out and threatens to take out an ad in the Gazette telling everyone he's the father if he comes near her again. Adam tells Rita that the buy-back clause has expired so she can't pull out. Anna tells Kevin her theory about Phelan setting her up. She realises he doesn't believe her when he questions her story, incredulous that she would venture into the builder's yard alone. Jenny tells Rita she can stay with her and Johnny as long as she wants. Adam feels bad for Rita and considers changing the date on the contract to help her out. Sarah is relieved when Gary tells her that he doesn't want another child. Anna makes Kevin ask her if she pushed Seb. She proclaims her innocence.
