When Becca asks Stacey about when they should get their flat, Stacey replies that she wants to wait as she hopes to travel back to the beach where she and Bradley spent their honeymoon and sprinkle his ashes into the sea. Jean then approaches the pair and suggests that Stacey should attend a 'young mums' group at the community centre. Stacey agrees to go, but while there, she realises that the group is probably not for her, due to the lack of excitement or social interaction. Later on, in the Slaters' house, Becca confronts Jean about her ploy to replace Becca in Stacey's life with other women. She then informs Jean that she and Stacey are going to get a place together.
Jean confronts Stacey about the flat and informs her that it was Becca who called the police on the night of Bradley's death. Becca initially denies this, however, with Jean gone, she confesses that she did so for the sake of herself, Stacey and the baby. An argument ensues, resulting in Becca throwing Bradley's ashes at Stacey. The urn hits the wall and breaks, covering Stacey in the ashes. On Jean's order, Becca packs her bags and leaves the house.
Meanwhile, at the hospital, Peggy tries unsuccessfully to encourage Sam to change her mind about the adoption of her newborn baby. Sam explains that she made the decision months ago and orders Peggy to leave. When she returns home, Peggy locks herself in the sitting room, preventing Pat from getting in. However, she later lets Pat in and allows herself to be consoled by her friend. Pat persuades Peggy to go and talk to Sam about the baby, so she asks Ricky to give her a lift to the hospital. In one last attempt, Peggy suggests to Sam that if she kept the baby she would have a better chance of winning back Ricky, given that Ricky and Bianca are not going to last forever. Later, in The Vic, Peggy enters carrying the baby and introduces him as her grandson to the rest of the pub.
Elsewhere, Pat gives Janine some money to contribute to her wedding; Ronnie suggests to Roxy that Jack may be the father of the Mitchell baby; Peggy goes to find Phil at the place where he's been staying, but he lunges at her and throws her out into the corridor; and Janine tries to pay off Ryan's mother Debra when she threatens to attend the wedding.
