The Storm EditLouise is still conscious after Ashley crashed his car into the river, but Ashley isn't responding at all. Louise is trapped and can't reach her mobile, so she has to cry into the storm for help.
Ashley regains consciousness - one leg is trapped, and he can't feel anything in the other.
Simon and Nicola miss the crashed car when they get to the blocked bridge, but Paddy gets out to look on his way to a call and hears their cries. He calls for help immediately, but the ambulance can't get Ashley out without the fire brigade - and they've only got ten minutes to cut him out.
When Louise is rescued she is whisked away, so Laurel keeps Ashley awake while they cut the roof off the car. She stops him losing consciousness, possibly saving his leg, and he is off to hospital with moments to go.
Tricia pops in to say goodbye to Diane and is given Marlon's epic letter. The whole village's power suddenly fails, so she stuffs it into her pocket and heads out to the bus stop. But when the bus doesn't turn up she dives into the phone box to call a taxi, and reluctantly reaches into her pocket to find Marlon's letter while she is on hold. But as she reads the list by torchlight her grin gets wider and wider. By the time she's got to number 20 she forgets the taxi and walks through the storm towards the pub, and the list blows from her hand.
Suddenly, a lightning bolt strikes a nearby tree and it comes crashing down towards her. She trips as she tries to get away from it, and falls screaming to the ground, only to see another lightning bolt hit the chimney of the Woolpack directly above her. The whole roof collapses into the pub, and as a huge lump of wall plummets straight down onto her.
Inside, most of the customers are okay if shaken. Simon has already called 999 on his mobile and everyone has been led out via the back of the pub when Diane and Marlon see Tricia lying motionless in the rubble. He's desperately trying to get debris off her when she faintly says "I came back Marlon". Marlon keeps her going while the helicopter comes, and she wants to know the number one reason he loved her. Marlon tells her - every time he looks at her he realises he loves her even more. The paramedics get Tricia out of the bricks and stretcher her straight into a helicopter.
Marlon dashes to the hospital in Diane's car with Steph and Alan, where a doctor tells them that Tricia has massive internal injuries and is in a critical condition. Having got her back again, Marlon could have lost her forever.
Charity Tate Found Guilty For the Murder of Chris Tate. EditIn the dock, Charity says she couldn't kill Chris because she loved him, but the prosecution undermines her by bringing up past lies, the affair and her profession. She defiantly says the lies were only during the affair, and she was the one who stopped that. She adds that while she may have grown up on the streets, Chris changed her life for the better, and she respected him for that - being a tart doesn't make you a murderer. But the prosecution finds more contradictions, and wrap everything up with her visit to Zoe - 'the act of a guilty woman'. The jury retire to consider their verdict, and Charity has to sit and wait.
To her horror, Charity is found unanimously guilty, and Lisa is left with the job of having to go and tell Debbie, still sitting in the cold on the green waiting for her mother to return.
Eric & Gloria Pollard EditPollard's staff are wondering how he's coping on both a business and personal level when Paul delivers an unmarked VHS. Everyone gathers round to watch and they are shocked to see Gloria, alive, in a tropical setting, and with a cold smug look on her face. Eric's joy is shortlived when she announces she has waited until now to clean out all his personal and business accounts - and the banks have no way to undo it.
