As the celebration of Phil's release continues at the Mitchell house, Ben points out to his father that they'll need to get back to Heather's flat to explain the presence of their fingerprints. The opportunity soon presents itself when a devastated Shirley arrives back at the house, holding George in her blood-stained arms.
Phil, Ben, Jay and Billy all then head over to Heather's flat and an ambulance is called. An emotional Shirley soon joins the four men and sobs uncontrollably as the paramedics arrive and confirm Heather's death.
Next to arrive at the scene is DS Crisp, who wants to talk to the witnesses. Initial questioning takes place, but Crisp then explains that they'll all need to be taken to the police station. Once there, they'll have DNA samples taken from their clothing in order to eliminate them from the investigation. The news of Heather's death then begins to spread as Phil shares the news with Patrick, Rose and Roxy. Andrew also finally turns up, and he's overwhelmed with grief for Heather when he hears what's happened.
Later, at the police station, everyone's clothes are taken away as previously advised. Just as Ben and Jay are led away for separate questioning, Shirley tells Phil that she overheard the police chatting and they believe the burglary was faked. Can Phil, Ben and Jay maintain their lies?
