Seb is prepared to take the blame for the flower shop break-in if it means Abi will fight for the twins. Abi continues to protect him. With a week to go until Sally's trial, Paula tells Sophie she's found evidence of Duncan's offshore bank account. Sophie doesn't think it's enough. Gina makes a date with a man called Ian on an internet dating site. Ali is on edge as he attends the inquest into Ronan's death. He's wound up by Ryan's flippant attitude towards what happened. Daniel gets a call from Flora's care home asking him to visit the upset pensioner. Sinead insists that he goes even though it means he won't be there for her in hospital. Nick makes Simon see that he'll gain nothing by rushing into a career with the Navy. Simon agrees to sit his A-levels and then sign up and also to apologise to Leanne for his hurtful comments. Abi finds Claire Manton in a meeting with Seb, who has applied to adopt Charlie and Lexi. Abi doesn't think he'd cope any better than she did. Claire warns Seb that if he gained custody of the twins he'd have to cut Abi out of his life. Sinead doesn't go for chemo, having decided not to continue with her treatment until the baby is born. She again meets with Steff Mulvenney, who made the call to Daniel at Sinead's request. Inspired by Steff, Sinead adopts an alkaline vegan diet, thinking it'll keep the cancer at bay. Sinead doesn't want Daniel to know as he won't understand. Sarah is intrigued when Carla tells her that she's calling the shots at the factory now. Amy forces Tracy to go out with Steve by threatening her with a fine. Tracy taunts Leanne in the Corner Shop. Elsa overhears their argument, including the fact that Leanne is seeing Nick. Steff makes Sinead believe she can beat cancer just by looking after herself. "Ian" turns out to be Duncan. He and Gina pretend not to recognise each other as they sit down to dinner in a restaurant. Elsa goes after Leanne and buzzes the flat. Inside, Nick and Leanne ignore the sound and head for the bedroom.
