At the Beales' house, Lucy sees Jane sitting in the dark in the front room. She confronts Lucy about guilt making it hard to sleep. Lucy thinks she is talking about her exam guilt, but Jane is actually referring to Lucy's secret abortion. Jane then makes Lucy promise that there are no more lies and she does, despite her still not telling the truth about her 'miscarriage'. Later on in the café, Jane tells Zsa Zsa to keep her spiteful lies quiet and that she believes that Lucy didn't abort her baby. However, Jane later confronts Peter about the abortion and he reveals that both he and Ian knew. Peter feels awful about revealing the truth, but Jane tells him not to worry and that he mustn't tell Ian that she knows. Jane then bumps into Denise, but runs off sobbing when Denise makes a remark about kids. Denise follows Jane back to the house and tries to comfort her.
Jane tells Denise that she is angry that Ian lied to her again, and now wants to leave. However, at The Vic later, Denise is happy to see Jane and Ian together. In a private moment, Jane tells Denise how much Ian has hurt her and declares that, before she can leave him, she needs to show him just how much he has…
Meanwhile, at the Slaters' house, Becca finds Stacey's phone and deletes a voicemail from Max asking her to go with them to scatter Bradley's ashes. Becca and Stacey are preparing to take a day trip to Brighton and Becca wants to make sure that she won't make other plans. However, Becca's scheme is thwarted when Dot fills Stacey in on what Max is planning. At Max's house, Max tries to convince Stacey that he called her and left a message, but she continues to fall for Becca's lies.
Stacey says that she is most upset that Max has chosen a place that means nothing to her to scatter the ashes and walks out. Later on, Max goes to see Stacey and tells her the reason for wanting to scatter the ashes at the location he's chosen. Soon afterwards, Stacey, Lily, Dot, Abi, Vanessa and Max all head off together. However, Stacey makes Max stop the car, saying that she isn't ready to say goodbye. Max agrees that Stacey can keep the ashes until she is ready.
