Phil tries to come up with an explanation for Shirley, but she cuts him off and orders Glenda to leave. When they're left alone, Shirley slaps Phil but he protests that the situation isn't what she thinks. However, it seems that Shirley may have heard enough. Later, Ben and Jay enter the R&R and Phil threatens Ben, convinced that he told Shirley about the affair.
Meanwhile, as Glenda returns to the flat, she's furious and confronts Ronnie over the way she stabbed her in the back. As the pair argue, Roxy enters and pulls no punches with her mother - declaring that she's glad Glenda is leaving because she has never been a good mother. Glenda tries to defend herself but it looks like it's too late. Later, as Ronnie shares some time alone with Jack, she confesses that she hasn't been attending her counselling sessions. When Jack asks whether this is all she has been hiding, Ronnie assures him this is the case.
A desperate Glenda soon heads over to the Beale household and promises to leave Albert Square forever if he agrees to give her £5,000.

The news doesn't impress Glenda, who repeats her threat to tell Jane the truth. However, vowing he won't be blackmailed, Ian heads home and tells Jane that he has something to tell her. Is he about to come clean at last?
Later, as Glenda is about to depart Walford for good, Shirley comes out of the shadows and grabs her…
