Roy is desperately unhappy and struggling to cope with acting normally at work. Elizabeth is trying to be business-like but can't bear to see him suffering. Roy just wants to be left alone to work. But Elizabeth can't leave it. As they rue their impossible situation, they fall into each other's arms, only to be almost caught by Freddie. Roy goes home and Elizabeth breaks down in tears.
Elizabeth tells Freddie she was thinking about Nigel. And the pressure of Loxfest has just been too much. Unable to face Roy herself, Elizabeth gives Freddie an envelope to give to him, claiming it's just some paperwork and keys.
Vicky's worried about Mike's back, She tells Hayley she's on eggshells trying to talk to him about retiring. Vicky lets Hayley in on the wider plan. She wants to move to Birmingham with Mike and Bethany.
Hayley tells Roy. He can't believe Mike is planning to move to the city. Mike says he's ready to move on and focus on what's best for Beth, but his mixed feelings are clear. It's another tough blow for Roy but he bottles it up and tells Mike he's fine.
Freddie gives the envelope - which has now been opened - to Hayley. He says it's urgent. Something slips out onto the floor. Abbie picks it up and gives it to Hayley. It's a heart-shaped locket.
