*Second episode, 8.30pm*

Tommy tries to apologise but Terry just drives off. Tommy’s struggling to cope and it becomes clear that Geoff and Doreen never really told Tommy what Terry is like. As the regulars insist that Terry’s bad news, Tommy gets angry, forcing Tyrone to tell him the awful truth – that his dad sold him, as a baby, to the Hortons. Tina seeks Terry out demanding answers and he admits he never wanted a son and he still doesn’t.

As the residents offer their condolences to Gordon they’re dismayed to hear he intends to have her buried in London. But, as an impromptu memorial starts in the pub, Gordon realises what an institution his mum was and resolves to rearrange the funeral in Weatherfield.

Aware that Leanne’s visiting Simon at the Barlows, Carla covers by suggesting she and Peter make the most of their time alone together. Carla convinces an oblivious Peter to spend the afternoon with her.

Also, David’s timing is bad as he has the police threaten Audrey with harassment just after she’s learnt of Betty’s death. Karl feels emasculated by Stella who won’t let him behind the bar despite how busy they are with Betty’s ‘memorial’.
