Fred is still brooding over Audrey’s confession. Bev is totally unaware of what is going on and is convinced he is worried about Ashley and Claire. Audrey feels uncomfortable when Bev calls into the salon to discuss hair styles and when Bev tells her how stressed Fred is she can’t help but ask if she thinks he will cancel the wedding. Who will Fred choose? Rosie and Craig are feeling increasingly suffocated by Rosie’s family interfering in their lives and start to discuss a life away from Weatherfield. As they talk about all the amazing places to visit in the world an idea starts to form in their minds and they come up with the hair brained scheme to travel to Paris after all – but then to run away to Berlin!Ashley is emotional that Claire is returning home and wants everything to be just right for her homecoming. Claire is nervous about seeing baby Thomas but after an initial awkwardness she takes him in her arms and Ashley heaves as sigh of relief as it looks as though everything is going to be okay. Elsewhere, Fiz is growing increasingly fed up with Kirk’s attempts to teach her to drive and, after spending her lunch hour driving round and round in circles, she storms off leaving Kirk bemused and confused.
