At the end of Friday night's instalment, Yasmeen (Shelley King) told Geoff that she was going to go abroad without him, but her abusive partner pinned her against the wall and refused to let her leave.
In tonight's scenes, Yasmeen stuck by her decision and managed to get out of the house with her suitcase in hand before heading straight to the builder's flat and telling her granddaughter Alya (Sair Khan) that she would be going to Zeedan's wedding in Spain after all.
Yasmeen acknowledged Alya's assertion that she was being manipulated by Geoff, but she soon began to panic when he then sent her a number of alarming texts, even suggesting he might take his own life.
As a worried Yasmeen insisted that she go and check on Geoff, she was later left horrified to find a smashed and blood-spattered photo frame at the house.
But it soon became clear that Geoff had never planned to harm himself. Instead, he went out for a pint and watched as Yasmeen panicked via his hidden camera.
Yasmeen then told Alya that she can't go to the wedding now, leaving Alya furious, and when Geoff eventually returned home, Yasmeen was relieved to find him safe and embraced him.
But with Alya's words stuck in her mind, it seemed that Yasmeen was still doubtful about her husband's manipulative behaviour and, at the end of the episode, Yasmeen made a call to the police and requested information under Clare's Law to find out if Geoff had any record of an abusive past.
Will this be the first step in Yasmeen escaping from evil Geoff?
