Ronnie heads downstairs to find Jack cooking her breakfast – the pair are flirty and share a kiss. When Sharon enters, Jack makes an effort with her and suggests that things will work much better if they all pitch in. As Jack makes to leave back to Dot’s, a flustered Les arrives and states that he received an email that morning, stating that Ronnie had passed away. Jack’s not worried, but it’s obvious that Sharon and Ronnie are concerned and Ronnie makes a swift exit. Alone with Sharon, Jack asks to know why she and Ronnie were so worried about Les’ email, but Sharon’s reluctant to open up. Jack finds Billy in the café and asks him if he knows who could be messing with Ronnie. Billy reluctantly tells Jack that the email contained details of how Ronnie died; leaving Jack shaken.
A suspicious Jack watches on as Ronnie heads to Vincent’s and knocks on the door. Vincent assures Ronnie that the email had nothing to do with him – his rift with the Mitchells is over. There’s a knock at the door – it’s Jack. Jack demands to know who Ronnie could have made enough of an enemy of to do such a thing. Jack returns to Sharon and begs to know who could have a vendetta against Ronnie. Sharon relents and tells Jack about Carl White. Jack reels at Sharon’s revelation and brands the email sent to Les a potential death threat. Ronnie walks in on Jack declaring that he may have to walk away from her. Jack’s lost for words when Ronnie declares that she was protecting herself; Carl tried to rape her. The trio panic when Sharon answers the door to a bunch of flowers with a card reading - ‘R.I.P’. Jack finds Ronnie and apologises for losing his temper – he wants them to be together. At Pam’s stall, Paul informs Ronnie and Jack that the customer who ordered the flowers to Number 27 left their name as Danielle Jones...
