Steph and Tricia
Tricia reveals to her mother that she's left Marlon because he slept with Charity. Steph stands up for Marlon, calling him noble and honest, but her face betrays a secret. Tricia discovers that her mother had fallen for Marlon, although he had resisted all the way. Tricia is livid. She throws her mother out and can't forgive Marlon for keeping secrets just before their wedding.
Marlon and Charity
Paddy tells Marlon he's never going to get Tricia back while he's still living with Charity, and suggest he move to The Marsdens. Marlon can't afford the deposit, but goes to Charity asking for a loan from her legal fund. Charity is angry after all she went through to win it, but Marlon reminds her that he stuck by her when noone else would, and without the money he'll never get Tricia back - he's facing his own life sentence. She relents, and soon Scott has a £1000 deposit, plus all the rest of the money in Marlon's pockets.
Tricia writes Marlon a goodbye letter
Eric is very upset that Gloria has vanished and is being further wound up by the Woolpack regulars. But then a policeman turns up asking him for a chat somewhere private and reveals that her cards have been used by a man in Aberdeen.

Tricia asks Marlon to tell her the absolute truth about any other women in his life. When Marlon doesn't mention Steph she confronts him angrily. He says he didn't want to hurt his future wife and he ran away from a woman coming onto him. Tricia's not placated, and later tells Diane she doesn't feel she can trust Marlon, despite loving him so much. She's leaving, and better now while there is something good to remember then when it's gone bad. Tricia writes him a letter explaining this, puts the rings in it, and seals the envelope on her marriage.
