Following their investigations, the police once again arrive in Weatherfield. To Steve’s horror the police inform him they have found clothing fibres on the Streetcar vehicle that match the dead man’s clothes and he is promptly arrested. A guilty Ronnie watches as the innocent Steve is led away for questioning. Down at the station, realising how serious the situation is, the worried cab firm owner comes clean to the police that it was Ronnie driving the car that evening and not him. The police quickly track Steve’s girlfriend down but she vehemently denies asking Steve to claim he was the driver of the speeding cab. Will the police believe Ronnie’s lies or will Steve have to reveal he was in bed with Kelly at the time of the accident? Meanwhile, Sean gets a second chance with his father. Brian and Sean meet up again and share a drink in the Rovers. The camp machinist takes the opportunity to tell Brian about his sexuality. Brian is not surprised and tells a relieved Sean that he knew his son was gay from a very early age. Delighted they are getting on so well, Sean introduces his father to his pals. Have the father and son pair finally put aside their differences? Elsewhere, after her disastrous relationship with Charlie, a tentative Shelley puts her toe back in the romantic water when she goes out on a date with Rovers customer, Simon.
