Charity is forced to make a decision about her baby’s future.

Cain (Jeff Hordley) visits Charity (Emma Atkins) in prison after hearing about Zoe’s (Leah Bracknell) cruel ultimatum. Torn between her freedom and her fortune, Charity tells Cain she is going to turn Zoe’s offer down.

Having drawn up a contract for the exchange, Zoe meets Charity at the hospital with the documentation but is horrified when Charity unexpectedly tells her to rot in hell and refuses to sign Noah’s life away.

Zoe begins to panic and after finally admitting that Chris killed himself she decides to offer Charity a one-off payment of £10,000 to clinch the deal. Will it be enough to make Charity sign on the dotted line?

Zoe waits while Charity decides whether to sign or not.

Elsewhere in the village, the Dingles step up their intimidation as they continue to use scare tactics to threaten Scott (Ben Freeman). He becomes increasingly nervous in their company and does his best to avoid them.

Dawn (Julia Mallam) admits to Terry (Billy Hartman) that she is not seeing enough of TJ, but that’s not all she feels guilty about. Scott can’t hide his disappointment when she hands in her resignation, but whether this will spell the end of their flirtation remains to be seen.

Cain visits Charity in jail
After Lisa tells Cain that Charity has sent Zoe pictures of baby Noah and seems more positive about her sentence he visits her in prison to find out what she’s up to. Charity tells him that she's prepared to give up the baby in exchange for her freedom but she won’t give up her claim on the Tate estate for Debbie’s sake. Cain tells her that the money doesn’t matter to Debbie and that the three of them could be a family if she got herself out of jail. When Charity says she wouldn’t be prepared to live in squalor with him Cain walks out saying to the guard that Charity deserves to be locked up.
Charity looks over the document while Zoe looks anxiously on
Meanwhile, Zoe has a row with her solicitor who warns her that she could be tried for perjury if she changes her evidence in Charity’s case. Zoe is adamant that if she claims she was suffering from amnesia at the time she will get away with it. When Zoe returns to the hospital with the adoption papers Charity tells her to rot in hell, but as Zoe walks out Charity knows her chance of freedom is slipping away from her and she goes after Zoe. She agrees to sign the papers but only after Zoe’s agreed to pay her £10,000 and admit that Chris killed himself.
Scott, Cain and Zak
Everywhere Scott goes Cain and Zak go too. As Scott buys his morning paper the Dingles snatch it from him and read his horoscope for him, telling him that a nasty surprise awaits him. When he goes for a drink they follow him to the gents and then follow him when he leaves the pub. Dawn, who’s in the pub with Terry, looks concerned for Scott as she watches him suffer at the hands of the Dingles. After following Scott from the pub the mischief making Dingles set off to the cricket pitch where they build a pile of rocks.
