Back in the Square, Linda tells Nancy and Mick that she’s rung Dean and he’s fine. Knowing it’s a lie, Mick later questions her. Linda says she wants to draw a line under what happened.

Meanwhile, Sharon has a shock when Kristopher turns up with a box of letters from her birth father – he’s been trying to find her.
