After Lorraine organises an important morning meeting, she calls up Janeece and asks her to come with her to assist. An excited Janeece drops everything to help, including daughter Cheryl. In a rush to leave, she puts a note through Chalky's door and asks him to look after her girl. However, it's a while before Chalky realises, and rushes to Cheryl's aid. Sadly, she's hurt and a distraught Chalky takes her to A&E. Meanwhile, Rhiannon continues her reign of terror over Scout. After making it look like Scout wet the bed, Rhiannon then frames her when a bottle of Maggie's perfume smashes. Despite protesting her innocence, everyone thinks that Scout's the one to blame. The final straw comes when Rhiannon empties a bottle of water into her own bag, and pretends Scout did it, which leads Scout to attacking Rhiannon in the corridor. But even that doesn't stop Rhiannon, who then ends up poisoning the school out of spite. When Janeece returns to school, a dismayed Michael shouts at her and tells her that she's got a warning for her disappearing behaviour. However, a defiant Janeece retaliates and tells him that he can stick his job. She walks out, and tells Chalky that she's going to leave Waterloo Road to go and live with her mum. Chalky's upset at her decision, but feels it's the right thing for her to do. Then, Christine lands herself in trouble when she suffers alcohol withdrawal symptoms in class. When her pupils start teasing her, she flips and pushes Phoenix to the ground. Michael calls her into his office, but she lies about what went on.
