Tony puts on a great act with Carla and denies any involvement in Jed’s injuries. He insists that he found Jed trying to commit suicide on Christmas Day and saved him and offered to re-house him out of guilt. Carla is not sure but with no evidence to the contrary has to believe Tony. Later, Tony calls Jimmy and asks him to put the frighteners on the old man, which Jimmy duly does. Carla has a creeping feeling of unease when she overhears Emily telling Rita that Jed is in hospital after suffering a suspected heart attack.
Anna begs Gail to ask Tina the truth about the fight, but Gail is insistent it was Gary. When Gail reveals Anna’s suspicions to Tina and David they immediately deny everything and Gary does himself no favours by telling Tina he knows she lied to the police, almost starting another fight with David.
