Roxy refuses to hear Ronnie out. Ronnie informs Sharon and Phil Roxy’s all theirs then storms out. Frustrated, Phil tells Sharon the sisters need to sort things out or they’re all shafted. Sharon insists on going after Ronnie, leaving Phil unsettled. Shirley spots Ronnie passing then collars Sharon. Sharon’s horrified when Shirley reveals she knows Ronnie killed Carl because she helped Phil clear out Carl’s flat. Sharon and Shirley find Ronnie in the gym office. Shirley explains to Ronnie that she helped Phil. He had to get rid of Carl’s stuff and obviously couldn’t trust anyone else. Sharon tells Ronnie to do the right thing and take a plane to the other side of the world. Ronnie insists she had no choice but to kill Carl. Ronnie explains that Carl wouldn’t tell her where Roxy was, even when he had the car keys and money. She realised he just wanted to get back at them and hurt them. She tells them that Carl had Amy with him that morning, he was capable of anything. Ronnie’s adamant that she was protecting herself and her family and will have to live with what she did every single day of her life. Meanwhile, Phil tries to talk Roxy round and persuade her to carry on as normal – she knows Ronnie well enough to know she must have had good reason.

Shirley leaves, reminding Phil he knows where she is if he needs her. Shirley crosses the Square, unaware someone’s watching. Phil thanks Sharon for everything – he knows he should have told her about Shirley. Sharon seems understanding, claiming they can’t move forward if they don’t trust each other. Ronnie tells Roxy about Carl taking Amy. She also explains that Carl tried to force himself on her and called her ‘damaged goods’. Roxy softens and allows Ronnie to take Amy back to bed.

Roxy turns the phone on and messages start coming through. Ronnie tries to take the phone but it starts ringing – the display reading ‘Mum’…
