2661: Newt makes a new friend
Aired Monday, Oct 5 2009 at 18:30 BST on Channel 4

Elliot, Nancy and Kris watch old home footage of Sarah and mourn the death of their best friend. The police, meanwhile, interview Elliot and they confirm that the Horny Goat Weed was herbal - he'll walk away with only a caution for his drunk and disorderly behaviour. Kris suggests that they all go for a drink in memory of their friend at the SU bar, where they're later joined by a grieving Steph.

They all fondly reflect on Sarah's life and laugh about her funny ways but it's all too much for Elliot, who walks out. Kris later apologises for his humour, explaining that it's his way of getting through the heartache. The trio bond, knowing that they must help each other to cope with their loss.

Meanwhile, Frankie searches through photos of Newt for the missing persons' website, while Jake's psychiatrist informs Steph that Jake wants her to visit. When Steph refuses to go, a guilty Frankie turns up to see her son and apologises for Steph's absence and tries to reassure him that she does care. Jake's paranoid that he will never be completely forgiven and fears how he'll be treated when he's released.

When Frankie reports back to Steph that Jake was devastated about her not going to see him, a confused Steph is comforted by Jack who tells her he understands her not being able to forgive and forget because of his situation with Darren. Just like Frankie, Jack's determined to have his family back and it's clear that everyone is terrified at the prospect of Newt not returning home.

Jake worries about not being ready to leave but Dr Sanders tells him that it's his family who aren't ready, not him. Jake's unsure about returning home but Dr Sanders informs him that he's arranging his immediate release - he'll be home within the week!

Elsewhere, a tired and confused Newt is on the run with Eli. When a police officer passes by, Newt's paranoia intensified - he's convinced that he'll be sent to prison for life for killing Gaz, completely unaware that Gaz is still alive. After Newt snubs Eli's suggestion to forage for food in a bin, Newt's persuaded to mug an elderly lady for money. Spurred on by Eli, Newt makes for his target, Lily, and throws her to the floor, before making off with her bag.

Newt soon feels remorse and worries about how much he's hurt her. Eli tells him that he must hide and leads him to a derelict warehouse. While examining the contents of Lily's purse, they're disturbed by a girl standing high up on a ledge in the warehouse. Newt approaches and tries to help her down, but she warns him to stay away and that she intends to jump.

Newt eventually manages to coax her down and she follows him away from the ledge. Despite Eli's caution that she's bad news, Newt seems happy with his new friend called Rae. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
