Gail is in gaol. A female guard brings her breakfast, which she doesn’t want. She hunches sullenly and disbelievingly on her cot.
At the Grimshaws, Jason brings Tina some toast, which she doesn’t want either. EIleen comes downstairs. Tina says she wants to go to court for Gail’s bail hearing to make sure the diabolical murdering witch (or some such) doesn’t get bail. Because she is utterly convinced that Gail murdered her father, but has yet to produce any reason. Eileen offers to come along to support her.
Chez Platt, Nick is polishing his shoes on the table and Audrey tells him to get them off. They discuss the bail hearing, and David thinks Gail will come home for sure. Nick says don’t be so sure, and the Sons of Gail begin to bicker with vigor. Audrey tells them they will attend as a show of support, and behave like a family.
In gaol, Gail’s solicitor shows up. Gail, seemingly devoid of any fight at all, feebly wants to know when she can go home. She says she didn’t murder Joe. The solicitor reminds her this could go either way.
Meanwhile, back on the Street, An odd standoff occurs….Eileen, Jason and Tina emerge from the Grimshaws to go to court. So do Audrey, Nick and David, from the Platts. Tina and David stare one another down like gunfighters. Curiously, this standoff is witnessed by John and Fiz, walking by with some eclairs, and Kevin and Ty. And John went to jail. And so did Kevin. Over John.
Gail is brought into the glass prisoners’ box inside the court. She looks behind her to see her family supporting her, and also Tina and the Grims. The judge asks her name and residence. It’s decided that Gail won’t get bail and is in the slammer until July. Terrified, she is escorted downstairs. David shouts at Tina, saying that it’s all her psycho-dad’s fault.
Gail in gaol is being processed. She is told she can keep her wedding band. Throughout her orientation, she remains mute, passive, shocked and victimized.
Audrey has decided it’s up to her to move in and look after David, and she doesn’t relish the idea. Nick chimes in, announcing that he’s bought into Underworld, so it only makes logical sense that he move in with David (who needs a babysitter, why??? Oh yeah…)
At gaol, Gail is given her prison garb and ushered into a cell. The door bangs shut and is locked. Gail sits forlornly on the bed, alone and terrified.
Molly is at home, wanting to take a headache tablet. On impulse, she pours the lot into her hand. Her phone rings then, it’s Digory. Molly has arranged to move back home with him.
Molly is going into her house to get a few things before setting off to Digory’s. Kevin runs across the road to catch her. He wants to know what Molly is going to do about the baby. Molly says that since he’s washed his hands, it’s really none of his business.
Molly is picking up a few items at her and Tyron’s house to take to Digory’s when a drunk Jackie stumbles in with her latest conquest. Deciding that Molly is out to rob the place, she barrels off to find Tyrone.
Eileen is in the Rovers, and is telling Liz that there’s no way Gail whacked Joe. Liz agrees, pointing out it’s not the first time the coppers have got it wrong – look at the whole Becky mess. Tyrone is also at the Rovers and grousing about Jackie to a distracted Kevin in the pub, when Jackie comes in saying Molly is robbing the place. Tyrone goes home to address Molly, at the house Jackie becomes more and more ridiculous and Tyrone, having had enough, chucks Jackie out. and takes back his house key.
Tyrone notices that Molly looks worn out. She asks Tyrone if she can just sit down for a sec. Tyrone offers to run her a bath, which she accepts.
Molly comes downstairs from her bath to see that Tyrone has prepared a candlelight dinner. oops. She tries to protest, but is urged to at least have a meal (she ignores the wine). Tyrone says he never stopped loving her. Molly breaks down crying. Tyrone doesn’t know why, but comforts her.
