Things are tense in the Peacock household. Ashley is annoyed when it becomes apparent Claire has forgotten that Josh has an access visit with Dr Matt Ramsden. Claire reacts angrily to her husband’s criticism. Once Ashley is out of the house, Claire herself heads out, taking the baby with her. The troubled young mum pays Eileen a visit and asks to borrow one of Streetcars cabs, explaining to Eileen that driving seems to help the baby to sleep. Eileen agrees and hands over a set of keys, but Claire’s behaviour turns odd when she drives to a nearby park and leaves the baby alone in the back of the car. A passer-by notices the abandoned child sleeping in the car and calls Streetcars to raise the alarm. A worried Eileen informs Ashley and he frantically heads off in search of his wife and newborn child. Will Ashley be able to find his missing wife? Meanwhile, Sarah is not finding it easy with Jason back in Weatherfield. She has made it clear that she is not going to forgive him for what he did at the wedding. Jason, meanwhile, is not finding it easy either, as the other street residents also give him a hard time. He wants Sarah back and will stop at nothing in order to win her round. When Charlie asks him to do some painting on the house next door to the Platts’, Jason can’t resist the opportunity to loudly proclaim his love for Sarah. Will his shouted declarations sway his heartbroken ex? Elsewhere, Maria’s plans to arrange another date with Charlie are thwarted, Tyrone and Molly make arrangements to live together at the Duckworths’, and Dev’s daughter Amber returns from her trip to Finland.
