Christmas meets Boxing Day
Bill and Sally haven’t heard anything about Kevin. Blanche reveals her theory that She Rosie is pregnant by John – that is why Kevin hit him. Bill tells her she’s wrong, and Blanche seems disappointed.
Rosie is inside and puts down the phone. Sally asks who it is, Rosie replies that it is none of her business. Sally tells her that after yesterday every move she makes is her business. Rosie replies that her father is in a police cell because he can’t control his temper. (Yeah, so can you smack her again Sally?)
Rosie says that she did nothing wrong as she is seventeen years old. Sally mentions that it all started when she was sixteen.
Rosie then tells her mother that it’s only what she would have done if she’d had the chance. She says that John told her about Sally making a pass at him. “What’s Dad going to say when he finds out about that?”, and says that all of this has been taken out of proportion. Sally is stunned and then leaves the room. (Sally, please chuck her stuff out the window – now….) The phone rings, and Kevin is being let out on bail.
Poor Fiz is over at the café with Kirk and Chesney she is beside herself with grief. Who can blame her – when you find out your boyfriend is a perv?
Out on the Street, John is loading his belongings into his car. Rosie (Trouble) comes along and asks how is doing. Hmmm, I wonder. John tells her he has a broken cheekbone and that he has just got out of hospital. He informs her that he is going to stay with a friend.
Kevin pops out of the car, he sees Rosie talking to John and he’s furious, but Sally warns him to stay away. “If you lay one finger on him you’re back inside,” she says.
Fiz comes round the corner and stops, she sees John and Rosie. The three of them all look at each other for a few moments and then John gets in his car and drives away.
Over at the Platts’, they’re waiting for Stephen to come and say goodbye. David goes on that that if it wasn’t for Sarah he would have to say goodbye to Stephen, he’d be leaving with him. Sarah then decides to break the news that she and Jason are going to Milan. Stephen has offered her the job. Gail is stunned (insert squished face here). Sarah announces they have booked their flights for next Sunday. Audrey wants to know why Stephen never said anything to them about this and he explains that Sarah said she needed time to think. She turns to her mother and says she’s sorry if it’s come as a shock but it’s too good an opportunity to turn down.
Sarah says they’ll have a nice apartment to stay in and Bethany is going to go to an English speaking school.
Later, David comes downstairs to find Sarah sitting in the living room. “I hope you’re happy now,” he says. She tells him she is happy and in four days she’ll be gone for ever. David vows revenge (no surprise here). She states, “Why should you have the job?” she says, and reminds him that he nearly killed her Bethany and wrecked her wedding day. “But I didn’t do what he thinks I did,” he says, “it was you!” Sarah puts her face close to him and smiles. “Which makes it all the sweeter,” she says.
