Andrew tries to approach Shirley and George when he spots them on the Square, but he's left distraught when Shirley brands him a murderer. Returning home, Shirley busies herself with Heather's funeral arrangements and a guilty Phil offers to finance the whole thing after hearing that it will cost £4,000. Soon afterwards, Ben is relieved when Phil gets in touch with Darren and asks him to return to England immediately. Shirley then gets a phone call from the social worker, who confirms that Darren wants his child back in light of recent events.
Later, Shirley discusses the funeral with Dot, but gets upset when she can't remember which George Michael song Heather would have wanted. Dot then speaks to Andrew at the launderette and is moved when he explains that 'You Have Been Loved' was the song Heather wanted. As Andrew continues to speak about how much he cared for Heather, Dot starts to doubt whether he was the killer. However, when Shirley spots Dot and Andrew talking, she bans them both from the funeral…
Meanwhile, Alfie fears the worst when he learns that Billy has told feisty Lola about their successful scam. However, when Derek accuses Billy of being involved, Lola sticks with the schemers' cover story - claiming that Billy was at the hospital with her the whole time. Unhappy over his setback, Derek realises that he can't run the Square from Jack's sofa. However, when Derek asks Bianca whether he can move into Pat's old room, she adamantly refuses - declaring that Pat would turn in her grave if he moved in.
Elsewhere, Jack and Denise are horrified to discover that they've been set up on a blind date together by Zainab and Tanya, while Roxy continues to act smitten with Alfie - but he's preoccupied by thoughts of Kat.
