The cover-up over Kyle's guilt in Al's murder case is only just beginning, but the pressure is already becoming too much for Moira to deal with. When she pays another visit to Cain at the prison, Moira is visibly agitated over the ongoing lies and deception.

Moira admits that she's not cut out for the situation, and feels that Amy has done the right thing by heading off to Belfast with Kyle.

The next day, Mackenzie visits Cain and breaks the news that Moira has taken Isaac to Belfast so they can be with Amy and Kyle. Cain is shocked as the reality of his recent decisions hit home, wondering whether he'll ever see his family again.

When David tries to warn Max off from spending time with Griff, the teen ignores this. It's clear that another course of action may be needed.

David tells Max that he wants to meet his new friends for the first time, so they head off to Griff's flat along with Lauren. How will David react to Griff as they come face-to-face?

Felix is adamant that Mason should be punished, so he warns Honour about her son's bad behaviour. DeMarcus is annoyed with his dad for interfering.

Meanwhile, Felix's revelations don't go down well with Dave, who tries to downplay the concerning situation. With Honour feeling differently, the Chen-Williams family are divided.

It's the week of Al's funeral and Chas has a chance to attend without arousing suspicion, as Kerry asks her to be there. Chas is upset when the service clashes with the scattering of Liv's ashes and she has to attend the latter event instead.

Chas finds it increasingly difficult to hide her grief for Al, especially when she learns that there was a poor turnout for his funeral. She secretly reads through the order of service and becomes emotional, leaving Paddy curious about her behaviour. It may only be a matter of time before he gets closer to the truth.

Meanwhile, Chloe does some digging into Al's finances and ultimately finds out that he was planning to move away with a secret lover before he died.

Chloe breaks the bad news to Kerry, who wonders about the identity of the other woman.

Stu is hoping to secure permanent custody of his granddaughter Eliza, but has been told that she can't move into the Nazir house unless she has her own bedroom.

Stu starts considering alternative places to stay, but Yasmeen surprises him by revealing that she wants him to start sharing her bed. This marks a turning point for their relationship, but also frees up a room for Eliza to stay in.

As Eliza starts to settle into Number 6, Stu realises that the recent arrests of Bridget and Lucy have taken a toll on her. It seems that it won't be plain sailing for this new family unit.
