Recovering alcoholic, Luke Morgan, is feeling the pressure but is he about to spiral out of control again?
The trouble starts when Luke’s mother, Sue Morgan (Marian McLoughlin) who is terminally ill, takes a turn for the worse.
Sue collapses and is given oxygen, but Dr Misbah (Harvery Virdi) warns Luke that his mum is getting weaker by the day and will become much more dependent.
Luke, who has Pick’s Disease himself, opens up to his ex Mandy (Sarah Jayne Dunn) and tells her he’s terrified of dying.
Later on, recovering alcoholic Luke is tempted to start drinking again.
Is he about to do something he will bitterly regret, or will someone stop him in time?
Elsewhere, Summer Ranger (Rhiannon Clements) does her best to prove to Brody Hudson (Adam Woodward) how serious she is about their relationship.
However one person who is very suspicious of Summer is Sienna who, in yesterday’s episode, found a note written by Summer that read, ‘DESTROY BRODY!’
Sienna confronts Summer who is forced to explain herself and the note.
A quick-thinking Summer lies and tells Sienna she only wrote it because she was frustrated after an argument.
Will Sienna believe her or will she work out there is something far more sinister going on and that a vengeful Summer is out to ruin Brody for good?
Meanwhile Verity Hutchison (Eva O’Hara) confides in her brother Tony (Nick Pickard) about her fears for his wife Diane’s (Alex Fletcher) mental health.
Later on doctor Misbah visits Diane and tells her she can talk to her if she’s feeling anxious about anything.
However Diane is fuming when she realises it was Verity who prompted Misbah’s visit.
Plus, Felix Westwood (Richard Blackwood) is frustrated when his best friend Warren Fox (Jamie Lomas) blows him out for his boss Fergus Collins (Robert Beck).
Seeing how disappointed her boyfriend is, Grace Black (Tamara Wall) hatches a plan to invite all the men to come and play poker the following evening.
However, she has a cunning plan up to sleeve to try and get the true measure of Fergus.
What exactly is she plotting?
