Lauren is unconscious following the car crash, while Joey manages to pull himself free but is alarmed to spot flames appearing from under the bonnet. Joey tries to pull Lauren to safety but suddenly his phone rings and it's Alice, wanting to talk about Derek. When Joey answers, he tells his sister to call an ambulance. Derek then rushes to the scene and manages to get both Joey and a now-conscious Lauren to safety. The dramatic rescue comes with only moments to spare as the car soon explodes and throws them all to the floor.

As Derek starts to ask questions about the accident, Lauren admits that she was the driver and had been drinking before setting off. Derek warns that Lauren will face a prison sentence if the police find out the truth, and suggests that they should claim Joey was driving instead. The pair go along with this false story in front of the police, but when Lauren's parents arrive on the scene, she privately confides in Tanya about what really happened - including telling her mum that she loves Joey.

Alone with his son, Derek reveals his true intentions by ordering Joey to end his deception by telling Alice the truth about the incident at the boxing gym. Derek warns that if Joey doesn't agree, he will tell the police the truth about the accident and get Lauren arrested. Joey calls Derek's bluff by claiming that Lauren means nothing to him, so Derek challenges him to prove it with a big ultimatum - either dump Lauren or start acting like a loving son.

Derek has Tanya exactly where he wants her.
As the eventful night continues, Tanya privately questions Derek about why he is covering for Lauren and accuses him of meddling. However, Derek hits back by warning Tanya not to cross him again or he will tell the police the truth. At the same time, Joey realises that he has no choice but to give into Derek's blackmail, so he approaches Lauren in her hospital room and leaves her devastated by claiming that he lied when he told her that he loves her…

Also today, Cora lashes out at both Tanya and Patrick for interfering in her life - feeling utterly miserable after Ava rejected her.
