As Phelan lies unconscious in a hospital bed, Eileen confides in Todd that Anna has been sending him hate mail and she suspects Kevin may have attacked him. In the café, Andy overhears Tim telling Sally that he saw Kevin, clearly wound up, heading for the builder’s yard at around the time of the attack.
When Anna and Kevin learn of Phelan’s plight, Kevin is pleased but Anna is worried he could find himself in the frame, even though he’s innocent.
The police question Steph and then Andy about finding Phelan after his attack. In an attempt to deflect the blame, Andy tells the police what he overheard in the café and suggests Kevin is their prime suspect.
The police then call at the garage and question Kevin. Kevin admits that he hates Phelan’s guts, but assures them he didn’t try to kill him. Will Phelan regain consciousness, or has Andy put an end to his evil deeds once and for all?
Meanwhile, Norris, Dev, Erica and a nervous Mary set off to Newton-le- Willows, hoping to find some answers about her past.
