It's the day of Denise's funeral and as Patrick tries to apologise to Kim, she doesn't want to know - today's all about her sister and nobody else. Denise's other sister Daphne arrives and comforts Libby and Chelsea, before expressing her wish that she'd apologised to Denise before she died. Libby struggles to deal with what’s going on around her and she quietly leaves. Across the Square, Lucas puts the finishing touches to the community centre ahead of the service. At the swings, Chelsea finds Libby who begins to question whether they ever knew their mother at all. Chelsea, however, insists that Denise was always there for them, no matter what happened.

Lucas looks strained as he addresses the congregation.
Later, a procession follows the hearse with Denise's coffin through the Square. Arriving at the community centre, Lucas begins the service. Before long, the congregation begin singing one of Denise's favourite songs. As the service continues, Lucas begins to falter and it looks like he's about to confess his sins. At the last minute, though, he asks everyone to pray. With Libby and Chelsea in emotional turmoil, Patrick stands and delivers a moving eulogy. After the service, mourners head to The Vic where Liz asks Libby to move to Spain with her. Daphne abruptly cuts in and offends Owen, forcing Libby to leave. Patrick looks on and is soon confronted by Kim who demands to know what he's playing at. With that, Patrick asks the girls to stay with him.

Meanwhile, Darren begins cooking a romantic meal for Jodie. With time running out, Darren asks Abi for her help and she gleefully agrees. Jodie soon arrives and the meal's a surprising success, much to Abi's frustration. The pair soon retire to the sofas and it's clear that there's love in the air. Returning from the bathroom, Jodie's horrified as Darren's stood there in his boxer shorts. Jodie screams 'Oh My God!' before rushing out. Darren stares down at his nether regions, bemused by her reaction…
