Abi tells Joey where Lauren’s gone, he goes after her with Fatboy driving. Though worried about Lauren, Tanya stays with a grief-stricken Max. The funeral cars set off without, Jack, Carol and Joey. Jack finds Carol, ashen, letter in hand and tries to calm her down. She’s incensed at Derek’s deceit and refuses to come to the funeral. She calls the number on the letter, but it’s been disconnected. Jack catches up with the funeral party. Outside the police station Lucy lets rip at Lauren about her drinking, selfishness and dishonest behaviour but can’t bring herself to turn Lauren in and walks away, leaving Lauren heartbroken. Stuck in traffic, something Fatboy says makes Joey realises Derek was more of a man than he ever thought. Eventually reaching Lauren, Joey persuades her not to hand herself in and they make a mad dash for the crematorium, where Cora’s giving an unplanned eulogy for Derek. They arrive at the same time as Carol, who’s had a change of heart. At the end of the service everyone’s shocked to spot a smirking Kirsty in the back row. As the crematorium curtains close, Joey is overwhelmed with grief and runs out of the church. Alice comforts him and he confesses that he let their dad die.

In The Vic, Alfie knocks back shots with Ian. Alfie’s upbeat; he has got a beautiful lady in his life. However, when alone, Alfie’s sadness about losing Kat is clear.
