A public showdown leaves Terry and Dawn's marriage in tatters.
The Dingles revel in Scott's humiliation as he realises they've had him for a fool.
Zoe warns Charity to stay away from her own baby.

Scott and Terry come to blows in the Woolpack and Dawn is a bystander

Terry throws Dawn out when she admits she has been lusting after Scott.

As Edna (Shirley Stelfox) enjoys her early morning stroll with Tootsie, she is surprised to come across Scott (Ben Freeman) on the cricket pitch. She quickly alerts Viv (Deena Payne) and Bob (Tony Audenshaw), convinced Scott is having some kind of breakdown.

Having spent a lengthy night rigid with fear on the rock structure, Scott is livid when Viv removes the sack from his head and helps him down. The Dingles ignore his angry threats and before long he is the laughing stock of the village.

To make matters worse, Dawn (Julia Mallam) is furious with Scott for standing her up the previous day and when she refuses to listen to his explanation he feels like banging his head against a brick wall.

However, Dawn’s mood swings have not gone unnoticed by Terry (Billy Hartman), and he is chuffed when he thinks he’s come up with the answer to their marital problems. When he produces a holiday brochure suggesting they go away, he is shocked when Dawn bites his head off.

With so much pent-up frustration Dawn loses her rag and lays her marriage on the line by telling Terry she considered sleeping with another man. Terry’s mind races when he realises she is talking about Scott.

No longer able to trust the woman he loves, Terry throws Dawn out, slamming the door in her face. Left alone, Dawn breaks down as she realises her marriage is over.

The reality of giving up her son hits home for Charity (Emma Atkins) when Zoe (Leah Bracknell) refuses to let her see Noah at the hospital. Will Charity stand by their agreement?

ITV.COM The Last Goodbye Wednesday 31.03.04
with the ever present prison warder at her side, Charity takes a last look at her baby.
Charity is in for a shock when she visits Noah at the hospital. Zoe is there and tells her this is the last time she will be able to see the baby. When Charity says she intends to carry on coming to visit anyway Zoe threatens to go back on her part of the deal and refuse to change her testimony. As Charity leaves she has a last look back through the window at her son and the enormity of what she’s done weighs heavily on her. Zoe later tells Ashley that she’s adopting Charity’s baby and the vicar is puzzled by how this could have come about.
Dawn sitting in the cafe
After a freezing cold night spent on top of a pile of rocks, on a snowy cricket pitch, in fear of imminent death Scott is not in the best of spirits when half the village gathers to see Viv and Bob rescue him from his sorry plight. His day doesn’t improve either when his mum takes him back to the café to warm up. He is soon confronted by an angry Dawn, who wants to know why she was stood up yesterday. When he tries to explain Dawn refuses to believe that the Dingles kidnapped him.
Dawn in tears having been thrown out
Still angry Dawn goes for a drink with Terry. When Terry suggests a holiday Dawn snaps at him. She tells him that a holiday is not the solution to their marital problems. Terry presses her to reveal what these problems are. Terry is stunned when Dawn tells him that things are so bad she arranged to sleep with another man. With Scott standing in the bar Terry soon works out who with. It looks as if a huge confrontation is about to break out when Bob gets Terry and Dawn out of the bar. A heart broken Terry tells Dawn the age difference between them has ruined their marriage before walking out. When Dawn returns home to talk to Terry he is waiting with her bags packed.
