Ste (Kieron Richardson) is hoping to reunite with Brendan (Emmett Scanlan) when the village's bad boy leaves him distraught with the sudden act of violence.
The latest twists in Ste, Brendan and Doug Carter's love triangle kick off when Doug (PJ Brennan) wants to move back to America after learning that his dad Herb has Parkinson's disease.
While Doug feels strongly that he should be around for Herb, it's unclear whether Ste will want to join him as he seems reluctant to leave his life in the village behind.
Ste knows that he'd struggle to be without Brendan, so as he continues to wrestle with his feelings, he pays a visit to Chez Chez and begs the Irishman to ask him to stay.
The pair soon share a kiss, but Brendan then gives Ste a startling reminder of their past with a punch that knocks him to the floor…

While we can't reveal too much about the motivations for Brendan's shock return to violence, it's fair to say that the incident makes up Ste's mind for him as he vows to go to America with Doug after all.
When Leah's real dad Billy Parker turns up in the village wanting access to the youngster, Ste and Doug realise that it's best to leave for the US as soon as possible. Meanwhile, Brendan heads off to Dublin to see his family.
With Brendan away, Ste and Doug have a leaving party at the club. However, Cheryl is sceptical about the pair's happy ending as she knows that Ste is still in love with Brendan.
Determined to voice her opinion before it's too late, Cheryl tries to talk to Ste through a bathroom door at Chez Chez, urging him to make a go of things with the man he really loves. However, in a twist, it's actually a devastated Doug on the other side of the door.
Cheryl's words have clearly made an impact on Doug as he starts to accept that if he loves Ste, he may have to let him go.
At the airport, Doug presents Ste with a ticket to Dublin, admitting that he can't be second best and he'll be waiting for him if he ever changes his mind. Will Ste take the ticket and reunite with Brendan?

Alfie (Shane Richie) gets an unpleasant surprise in an upcoming episode when he finds that the ring which belonged to Kat's mother is back among his wife's belongings at The Vic.
Well aware that Kat (Jessie Wallace) wouldn't have had enough cash to buy the ring back from the pawn shop herself, Alfie suspects that this must be connected to her mystery lover. When he then asks Kat about the ring and she claims that it's still in the shop, Alfie is distraught that she is lying to him.
Turning detective, Alfie tries to find out whether Jean or Charlie have lent Kat the money. When it's clear that they haven't, Alfie tries a different tack by taking the ring along to the pawn shop and asking some questions.

Over on Doctors, Kevin Tyler's family storyline continues as he discovers why his half-sister Nadia has decided to get in touch with him.
When Nadia persuades Kevin (Simon Rivers) to meet up with her and their brother Zarif, it soon emerges that their father Mo is seriously ill and needs bone marrow.
As neither Nadia (Hema Mangoo) nor Zarif (Asif Khan) are a match, the pair are hoping that Kevin will be able to help - but he is disgusted that this is the only reason for their sudden interest in him.
Kevin starts to ask more questions about the situation in the days that follow, so Nadia confesses that she's not even sure whether Mo would accept his help. She explains that Mo regards Kevin as a part of his life he'd rather forget.
Keen to hear from Mo (Kriss Dosanjh) himself, Kevin heads to hospital and finally introduces himself to his father. However, he doesn't get the reaction he'd hoped for when Mo rejects him, insisting that he'd rather die with dignity than accept any charity from his long-lost son…
