Soon afterwards, Edna is in the church in silent prayer as Ashley and Jude enter. She covers by saying that she was checking the flowers, but Ashley is aware that something is wrong. Edna comes close to confiding in him, but can't. At Woodbine, Rhona tells Edna that she's hopeful Tootsie has made a good start with the chemo and Edna clings to her beloved pet, hoping the credit card will pay for all the treatment.
Meanwhile, Charity and Andy are delighted when Debbie tells them that Sarah can come home tomorrow. Gennie also tells Debbie that she is pleased, but is left feeling wretched when Debbie blanks her. At the pub, Andy invites Marlon to Sarah's welcome home party and suggests that Gennie should be there too. Cameron thinks they both have a right to be there and defends Gennie to Debbie as she enters The Woolpack with Charity. Gennie is upset by Debbie's reaction as she tries to talk to her once more.
Back home, Gennie is down as she tells Nikhil that Sarah is coming home but she's not welcome. She wants him to take a brooch she bought for her, and Nikhil is determined to talk to Debbie.
Elsewhere, David feels bad as he tells Jacob that Alicia might not be home for Christmas, while Declan and Robbie arrive at an uneasy truce.
