Later, Tina returns home and crumbles when she realises that Tommy has gone. Owen sees Tommy at the bus stop with his bags and tells him that he's a fool for leaving - Tina's making a sacrifice to rescue him from his own mess, and doing something wonderful for Gary and Izzy at the same time. Owen's words have clearly had an impact on Tommy, but will they make him change his mind?
Meanwhile, picking Kirk up off the ground from where he's been floored by Dave, Beth quickly helps him into the van and tells him to drive. On the way back, they run out of fuel. Kirk heads off to a service station with Beth, who's still grateful for his intervention and horrified that he was hurt.
During the walk along the hard shoulder, Beth and Kirk share tales of their lacklustre love lives. Beth reckons it's never been easy, but Kirk tells her that he can't understand why - he thinks she's lovely. Are the pair getting close enough to share a goodnight kiss when they get back to Weatherfield?
Elsewhere, Lloyd presents Mandy with the bracelet she left in his cab last night. He doesn't notice her reticence as he invites himself in for a cuppa. As Lloyd sips his tea, Mandy subtly tries to get him to go. When he doesn't take the hint, she tells him that she has no interest in revisiting their friendship and asks him to leave. Later, Eileen tells Lloyd that it's probably for the best - there's little to be gained from harking back to the past. Lloyd supposes she's right, but it's clear he's not entirely convinced.
Also, Dev ruins Karl's romantic gesture by keeping Sunita back late, while Gloria reads about a Pub of the Year competition and forms a plan.
