It’s the day of Lexi’s christening. Phil has prepared everything, including changing Lexi’s name to ‘Lexi Billie Mitchell’ on the orders of service. Lola, unaware, has a bracelet for Lexi, engraved: ‘Lexi Pearce’. Phil gathers everyone for photos in the Vic. Problems ensue: Billy’s jacket’s ripped; Sharon discovers Jack shouted at Phil; Lola wonders if Phil has selfish intentions. Sharon and Jack argue and Jack proposes. Without answering, Sharon leaves for Phil’s, who also proposes. Lola sees the name ‘Lexi Billie Mitchell’ on the orders of service. Furious, she takes Lexi and leaves. Michael sees Sharon staring at Phil’s engagement ring, and brings it up with Jack, assuming the ring was from him. Jack realises Phil must’ve proposed too. Lola confronts Phil about Lexi’s name. Phil tells her if they’re all called ‘Mitchell’ they’ll be a proper family. He assures Lola Sharon’s happy with the name change too and reveals he’s asked her to marry him, and so the christening begins. Sharon finds Jack crying by James’ gravestone and asks Jack if it’s enough that they love each other. During the christening, Lola names Lexi: Lexi Billie Mitchell. Afterwards, Phil, Sharon and Jack disappear. Sharon says ‘yes’ to one of her potential fiancés – but which one?
