When Chris comes to work for the first time not wearing his father’s clothes, Howard makes a ill-judged comment to Emma then apologises; he just wants to be there for her. Emma appreciates this, but insists she can’t have a relationship with him. Howard understands and reassures her he’ll be waiting, whenever she’s ready. Mandy hears the end of this conversation and has a word to Chris… could they be getting back together? Chris tells her she must have misheard – Mum promised she’s never getting back with Howard, and she wouldn’t break her word.
Zara comes back to work with her broken ankle, but she doesn’t want help, especially from Daniel. Everyone remarks on how good Daniel’s treating her, and Jimmi can’t believe what he’s hearing. Alone with Daniel, Jimmi tells him exactly what he thinks – he knows this is just a facade – and even if it isn’t, it’s only a matter of time before he goes back to his old ways. Daniel assures him it’s not, but Jimmi won’t hear it. And he won’t forget what Daniel did, even if everyone else seems to be able to.
Meanwhile, a wake for a deceased patient throws Jas into a world of family secrets.
