Tony weighs into Maria's battle with her in-laws, telling Barry he and Helen should leave or face losing access to baby Liam. Maria then decides to go one further and informs Helen that her precious dead son (part II) had an affair with Carla, which wasn't very Catholic of him. Peter accompanies Ashley to the vasectomy clinic for moral support; Joe is prepared to do anything to buy more pills (which obviously means thieving off Gail); David persuades Graeme to share details of Joe's addiction; Jason unwittingly backs up Sean's lies; and Freda surprises Norris and his bunion.
