Back at Butlers, she’s about to tell Mack the truth when he reveals that Amy has been in touch to say she’s in Belfast with Kyle. But it isn’t long before he realises that this is also Moira’s intended destination.
When Cain later finds out that Moira has departed, he’s left in a distressed state. And both he and Mack are very doubtful that she’ll ever return.
Chas struggles with her grief
It’s the week of Al’s funeral, but Chas feels she can’t go and tells Kerry she’ll be attending Liv’s send-off instead.
At the sight of Vinny shakily opening Liv’s urn, Chas finds herself overcome with grief and rejects Paddy, deciding ultimately to exit the scene before she becomes a sobbing mess.
Back at the Woolpack, the landlady then finds herself having to provide a shoulder to cry on for Kerry, who’s been left upset by the poor turnout at Al’s funeral. Chas then secretly pockets a copy of the order of service but is later caught reading it by Paddy. He then confides in Lydia that he fears there’s more to Chas’s spiralling grief than she’s letting on.
Samson calls social services
A tired-out Amelia is doubting her abilities as a mum – hence Lydia putting Samson on babysitter duties. But he’s left fuming at being given this responsibility and makes the shock suggestion to Amelia that she think about putting Esther up for adoption.
Amelia, though, states that she knows what’s right for her baby, while Noah offers reassurance that she’s a great mum.
But after a heated showdown with Noah, Samson decides to take an extreme course of action when he contacts social services and pleads with them to take Esther into care. The next day, Amelia is left shocked when a social worker shows up at her door. And, when Sam has a row with Samson over his actions, the Dingle patriarch ends up collapsing to the ground. But will the drama lead to Samson regretting his rash decision?
Kerry discovers Al’s deceit
Chloe is helping Kerry to go through Al’s finances but starts to grow convinced that he was being unfaithful.
Chloe’s suspicions are then borne out when the estate agent calls and lets slip that Al was buying a house with his partner and her child. Chloe then decides to tell all to Kerry, who’s left devastated but ends up finding support from Chas of all people.
For her part, Chas – feeling increasingly guilty about the whole situation – then encourages Kerry to make a big decision about the direction of her life…
David’s shock request
Finally, David decides to start offering a delivery service in a bid to boost his profits. But his plans are jeopardised when he receives a speeding ticket that could cost him his licence.
In a quandary about what he should do, David then makes a shock request of Victoria: could she perhaps take the blame for his driving offence?
