Next week’s dramatic scenes see little Aaron Sandford (James Craven) being threatened by his abusive father Eric Sandford (Craig Cheetham).
Aaron tells his fiancée Summer Spellman (Harriet Bibby) that he has found a bag of marijuana in his father’s wallet, which he had taken from him in order to prevent him from buying alcohol.
Daniel Brocklebank’s Billy Mayhew and Gareth Pierce’s Todd Grimshaw discover a happy Aaron and Summer in the apartment, off their faces on freshly baked cannabis brownies.
Billy is horrified and tells them to go hide in the bedroom since the bishop will be there any second.
Todd cries at the bishop to stop as he is ready to try one of the brownies, but is it too late?
Billy continues to warn Aaron about the risks of drugs until Summer yells that she’s had enough of being told what to do.
Later on in the week, Aaron’s father, who is obviously intoxicated and agitated, shows up at the garage and threatens his son over the taken money and marijuana.
However, Kevin Webster dispatches him without delay (Michael Le Vell).
Summer is startled to learn when Aaron meets up with her that his father was waiting for him and attacked him when he came home.
Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) calls at the flower store apartment after learning from Fiz Stape (Jennie McAlpine) that Aaron stole marijuana from his father and scolds Aaron for misdirecting Summer.
Aaron winces in pain and strikes out, hitting Paul in the face when he reaches for his battered arm. Summer looks on in disbelief.
The Weatherfield vicar is sympathetic and rushes off to prevent Paul from reporting Aaron to the police when Aaron tells Billy that his father often hits him. Paul then informs Billy that he is going to report Aaron to the police. Will he arrive in time?
In another scene, Stu Carpenter (Bill Fellows), who is anxious, gets ready to meet his granddaughter Eliza at Speed Daal and is thrilled when it goes well. But when Lucy Woodrow’s ex shows up and demands that Bridget and Eliza leave the restaurant right now, the atmosphere changes (Lynda Rooke).
Stu’s DNA was not found on Charlie’s luggage, but Dee-Dee Bailey (Channique Sterling-Brown) informs Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) that re-testing the evidence would be costly.
Alya chases after the women as they leave the restaurant and accuses a frazzled Lucy of withholding crucial information regarding Stu’s case.
Alya is determined to come up with the money for the DNA test because she thinks Lucy may know more than she is letting on.
Stu explains to Yasmeen Metcalfe (Shelley King) and Alya that he is giving up on his case and just wants to put the past behind him.
In order to get in touch with his daughter and granddaughter, he is still adamant on dropping the case.
When Dee-Dee informs Alya that she has the funding for the test, Alya respects Stu’s wishes by telling Dee-Dee that everything must go through her.
Stu insists on calling Bridget when Eliza shows up at Speed Daal. When Lucy and Bridget arrive to pick up Eliza, Alya sees an opening.
Alya cufflinks Dee-Dee and urges that conduct a DNA test on a cup that Lucy previously drank from so they can determine for sure if she is the real killer of Charlie.
Dee-Dee discloses to Alya that she has made the decision to leave her work in Los Angeles but hasn’t yet informed her family.
Zeedan Nazir (Qasim Akhtar) discovers that Dee-Dee has not abandoned Stu’s case at all when she calls Speed Daal with paperwork for Alya to sign.
Dee-Dee is incensed by Alya’s deceit, but after hearing her explanation, she decides to send the cup away so that they can have the results for Stu in case he changes his mind.
James Bailey (Nathan Graham), the nephew of Ronnie Bailey (Vinta Morgan), is also informed that a youth center in the Lewisham area is seeking a football coach.
James vows to phone them as soon as he realizes Danny Tomlinson (Dylan Brady) lives nearby.
James informs Ronnie with excitement that he will begin working at the youth center on Monday.
James informs the family he has a fantastic new job, but it requires moving to London, in the Bistro.
As James exits the street, Ed (Trevor Michael Gerorges), Aggie (Lorna Laidlaw), Michael (Ryan Russell), and Dee-Dee say goodbye to him in an emotional way.
