Tensions rise between Mick and Linda following her revelation. Johnny finds himself torn when he faces a dilemma. Shirley makes a difficult decision about her relationship with Dean.


Linda and Mick clearly have lots to discuss after Linda's news that she wants another baby - do they want the same thing? At the same time, Dean and Lee bond over a nightcap downstairs at the pub as they discuss their experiences of growing up as a Carter.

Later, Mick follows Linda as she heads downstairs and he makes a surprising romantic gesture to apologise for their disagreement. The couple soon kiss and make up, but as they reminisce over their childhood, Dean is still downstairs and can hear every word. This leads to Dean discovering a huge family secret. Once Mick goes back upstairs, Linda spots Dean and swears him to secrecy. Can Linda trust Dean?

Soon afterwards, as the night draws to a close and Mick prepares for bed, he overhears Lee drunkenly mumbling about how he did something stupid connected to Lucy Beale…

Meanwhile, Johnny is in a downbeat mood as he returns from saying goodbye to Gianluca at the station.

Elsewhere, Shirley has a heart-to-heart with Patrick over Dean. Patrick urges Shirley not to give up, but when she heads back to The Vic, she tells Dean that she will walk away and won't be his mum anymore if that's what he really wants. How will Dean react?
