Lily McQueen (Lauren McQueen) has decided to flee the hospital and Chester with Romeo Quinn (Owen Warner) who is now on the run from the police over Mac Nightingale’s murder.
Lily’s aunty Diane (Alex Fletcher) is out of her mind with worry when she gets a call from the hospital and discovers Lily, who has turned to self-harming again, has done a vanishing act.
Diane storms round to James’ flat to track down Romeo but is thrown when there’s no sign of him either.
Meanwhile Romeo and Lily are lying low in the village and hiding while they work out their next move.
Diane continues her hunt and rushes into The Dog to see if Lily’s husband Prince (Malique Thompson-Dwyer) has heard from either Romeo or Lily. Prince is alarmed to hear both are missing and is furious to find out they’re on the run. He vows to help Diane find them.
Elsewhere there’s panic when a doctor tells psychologist, Farrah Maalik (Krupa Pattani), that her patient, Lily’s, blood test results are back and the situation is critical. Her wounds from her self-harming are infected and she has sepsis. Can anyone locate Lily before her health takes a dramatic turn for the worse?
