Ali tells Michelle that Ryan is still alive and leaves her to look after him while he goes off to tend to Leanne and Ronan. A police motorcyclist arrives. Ali hears Ronan crying out in pain. Eileen arrives to see Liz and sees that something is very wrong with her friend. Ali leaves the policeman administering CPR to Leanne while he goes to see what's wrong with Ronan. Johnny returns to the Rovers where Jenny puts on a show of saying that she doesn't believe a con-artist like Hannah and that she trusts him. Ali finds Ronan in his car, crashed down a river embankment with a fence post impaled in his stomach. When Ali says he tried to do all he could to save Cormac, Ronan tries to reach for the gun but Ali snatches it away. Jim finds Hannah outside the churchyard in their car. She tells him she forgives him and he's got yet more proof that she's the only one he can rely on in the world. They drive off together. Ronan continues to makes threats about Ali and Michelle. Realising they will always be a target for him, and under a medical pretext, Ali makes Ronan hold the fence post and then yanks it out of his stomach, killing the gangster. An ambulance arrives. The paramedic recognises Ali who sobs as he claims Ronan killed himself in front of him. Eileen comforts Liz who confesses to her fling with Johnny. Tracy has been brought home but is still drunk and her head is all over the place as Ken sits with her. Eileen brings the news round that Steve's sister isn't Hannah and Jim has been conning them. Tracy is delighted at her new husband's misfortune. The two injured people are brought to hospital. Leanne is taken straight to theatre. Michelle rails at Ali for choosing to treat Ronan over Ryan. The paramedic tells Robert what happened between Ali and Ronan and to keep an eye on him. Tracy sets off for Morocco, happy at the thought of telling Steve the bad news. Robert tries to talk to Ali but gets a brush-off. Toyah arrives at the hospital and is told that Leanne is recovering from heart surgery. She is stunned and angry to see Nick there, him being called as the emergency contact on Leanne's phone. Johnny tells Jenny that Hannah's accusation was true. She breaks down.
