Review :-

A devastated Diane forces the truth from the feuding Sugden brothers.

Marlon tries to fend off an amorous Donna.

Louise makes a guilty Dawn see sense over Terry.

Donna is  on cloud nine and can’t resist telling her parents about her new boyfriend Marlon!

Andy panics that the police are onto him

Diane (Elizabeth Estensen) returns from her holiday, distraught to find there has been no change in Jack’s (Clive Hornby) condition. As Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) tries to convince Diane the shooting was an accident, Jack stirs and his eyes flicker open momentarily.

As the doctor leaves, Diane is suspicious and collars Robert (Karl Davies) and Andy demanding to know what really happened. Both insist it was an accident, but she probes further and things start to become clear.

Later, Andy panics after realising how quickly Diane discovered his deception. He wonders how long will it take before the police begin to uncover the truth?

Back at the village, Marlon (Mark Charnock) does his best to avoid Donna (Verity Rushworth), but she comes to the Woolpack with the sole intention of catching his eye. She flirtatiously asks if she can buy him a drink on his next break, leaving Marlon worried by her intentions. Donna is later on cloud nine and can’t resist telling her parents about her new boyfriend Marlon!

Meanwhile, Louise (Emily Symons) takes Dawn (Julia Mallam) aside and reiterates that nothing happened between her and Terry (Billy Hartman). Dawn later questions Bob (Tony Audenshaw) about what he saw and he confirms they were only kissing.

Dawn begins to wonder if she has blown the situation out of proportion and realises she has been unreasonable in denying Terry access to TJ (Connor Lee). She apologises to Terry, telling him they should be concentrating on their son rather than arguing and agrees to let him spend more time with him.

ITV.COM How Did This Happen? Friday 21.05.04
Diane is worried sick to find Jack still drifting in and out of consciousness when she arrives at the hospital. Her mood quickly turns to anger, as she demands answers from Andy. Andy sticks to his story that the shooting was an accident and he doesn’t know what happened. Robert backs Andy up but lets slip that he was staying in the caravan with Katie. Diane immediately realises that Jack’s shooting happened because of Robert and Katie’s affair. Unnerved by Diane’s discovery Andy tells Robert the police must know what has happened too.
When the police interview Donna in the café she is upset by their probing questions and afterwards Marlon offers her some solace when he comes across her looking upset. Marlon later regrets playing the Good Samaritan when Donna arrives at the Woolpack dressed to kill and only has eyes for him. Donna asks Marlon whether she can buy him a drink when he next takes a break. Much to Val’s amusement Marlon scurries back into the kitchen telling Donna that he’s not sure how busy he’s going to be.
Louise tells Dawn that there is nothing going on between her and Terry. Dawn later reflects on her reaction to hearing from Bob that he seen them kiss. aer speaking to Bob again she realises that she’s blown things out of proportion and when she runs into Terry at the café she apologises for giving him a hard time in court and agrees that he can see TJ tomorrow.
Nicola shocks Laurel when she tells her that she’s decided she won’t be taking Simon with her to her school reunion but is going to enlist the help of a man who will make more of an impact on her bitchy former classmates. Laurel fears the worst, particularly as Simon has recently taking to telling everyone he meets how happy he is with Nicola.
