Janine wakes up in hospital and is desperate to see her newborn daughter. She makes her way down the corridor and spots Michael, who has been sitting next to the youngster's incubator in the NICU. Michael then gently informs Janine that their child is very ill. After reaching into the incubator to touch the baby, an emotional Janine takes her anguish out on a young nurse, before openly wondering whether she and Michael are being punished for their past misdeeds.
Soon afterwards, Jean pays a visit to the hospital to confront Michael, but she has second thoughts when she sees how weak the baby is. However, Anthony, Tyler and Ricky spot Jean before she has a chance to leave, and they're furious over her behaviour. Anthony and Tyler later confront Jean at the pub, warning her to stay away from Michael and his family. Kat wants to fire back at the pair by revealing the truth about Michael's con, but Jean stops her as it's not the right time.
Back at the hospital, Michael stays with his newborn child while Janine is resting in her own room. Suddenly, alarms sound around the incubator and medical staff rush to help the baby. Unable to cope with the situation, Michael walks straight out of the hospital…
Meanwhile, Alice decides that she wants to move in with Derek, but she will only do so on the condition that he leaves Lucy alone, which Derek agrees to. Soon afterwards, Joey is furious to see Alice and Derek together and a huge argument breaks out when he tries to separate the pair. Later, Derek makes an emotional plea to Joey and is pleased when his son agrees to meet him the next day. However, Joey lets Alice know that he's going to give Derek a taste of his own medicine by not showing up!
Elsewhere, Ray and Ricky find themselves arguing over parenting on Morgan's birthday, while Jay helps Max out at the car lot - but ends up spitefully sabotaging some of the vehicles when Max implies that Abi is better off without him.
