Sam and Lisa go to the station, where he is charged to appear in court two weeks later. Knowing he must confront his victim, Sam heads to the hospital. However Edna (Shirley Stelfox) is furious when he then turns up with a bunch of flowers, and is unwilling to listen to his tearful apology.

Elsewhere, Zoe (Leah Bracknell) is annoyed when she gets a letter from social services saying that they require further information about her mental illness in relation to the adoption.

Lisa is dismayed when Jarvis confirms that Cainís claims about Sam being responsible for knocking Edna down are true. Lisa and Jarvis are disappointed to find Sam packing his bags to leave. Jarvis makes it plain to Sam where his responsibilities lie. Petrified of going to prison again Sam is reluctant to go to the police but Lisa convinces him that he canít run away from his conscience. After Sam goes to the police station, where he is charged, he visits Edna in hospital. She is furious when he turns up, telling him he is wicked.
Cain seems hell bent on making himself the most unpopular man in the whole of the Dales. First he tells Debbie that if she goes on the trip to France she wonít be welcome at home again. Driving his daughter away is just for starters. Killing Samís chickens is also clearly not enough for Cain who is determined to make Sam suffer for landing him in hot water. When Sam returns from Hotton and Lisa tells Cain that Sam has been to see the police Cain goes to shake his hand but punches him in the stomach as he does so. Lisa is furious with Cain and tells him to pack his bags and leave.
Zoe is not happy when she gets a letter informing her that social services will be investigating her suitability to adopt Christopher because of concerns about her mental health. Zoe is convinced that Charity is trying to undermine the adoption and sends for solicitor Rachel. Zoe reveals that she has an ace up her sleeve that will help with the adoption, namely, her new relationship with Scott. Rachel is surprised, but has her own surprise for Zoe when she reveals that she is a lesbian.
Social services pay Charity a visit and put her in the picture about their reservations on the issue allowing Zoeís adoption of Christopher to go through. Debbie is present and the suggestion that the adoption may not go through is music to her ears. When Zoe visits Charity she tells her that she has to attend a court hearing about the adoption. Charity tells her that she doesnít have to attend anything. Zoe assumes that Charity is after money in exchange for supporting the adoption and asks her how much she wants.
