To lose one child in a fatal fall from the Vic's roof may be regarded as a misfortune, but to lose two looks like carelessness. So, it's understandable that Max takes desperate measures this week to save Abi, despite the doctors - and Lauren - insisting that he needs to let her go.
It seems he's beginning to face the reality of the situation following some advice from a sympathetic nurse, but then a flat-pack cot is delivered for Abi and his grief overwhelms him once again. As Lauren prepares for her sister's life support to be switched off, will her father make it to the hospital to be at her side?
Elsewhere, Whitney postpones her trip to Wakefield to try to get to the bottom of what went on in Milton Keynes between Tiffany and Bianca. Masood gets a job at the Vic but lies to the Ahmeds that he's working at an estate agent's (how will they ever find out the truth?) and Dot returns to discover the launderette has reopened and is in the less-than-capable hands of Karen.
