Lucas watches from his bedroom window as a police forensic team pace the Square gardens in search of evidence. Hoping to get away from the problems on the Square, Denise suggests that they use Kim's caravan but Lucas is firm - he doesn't have time as he has other things on his mind. Wandering back from the café with a cake in hand, Denise spots DI Kelly knock on Dot's door. As Liz emerges, she doubles over with wrought emotion - and at that moment, Denise realises whose body has been dug up. Walking into the house, Denise reveals all to Lucas who calmly reveals that he was responsible for killing Owen.
Determined to leave town in order to save the kids from the repercussions of his actions, Lucas grabs for his belongings but Denise begs him to stay - they should both stay in Walford, keep calm and tell no-one of their secret. With that, Lucas convinces Denise to pray with her. They're interrupted, though, by the arrival of DI Kelly who asks Denise to join them at the station so they can record her official statement. As she's escorted to the car, Denise spots Liz across the Square and their eyes meet - Denise realises that Liz is responsible for the police carting her away.

Glenda manages to secure a babysitting session when Roxy's stuck for childcare but when Peggy spies Glenda bonding with Ronnie, she decides to stir the situation. Finding Roxy, Peggy confides in her that she overheard Glenda badmouthing Archie to baby Amy. With that, Roxy marches upstairs and demands that Glenda leave Walford.
