Stacey is doing more than she can cope with. Doing the best she can for Jean, making her breakfast in bed and fussing over her while also looking after the kids and attending the housework. Karen tries to persuade Bailey to go a party she's been invited to, but Bailey doesn't seem so keen on attending. Martin asks Rainie on Max's whereabouts. This agitates Rainie, and she makes a comment about Kush and Stacey. Stacey and Ruby share a heart-to-heart in the park. Karen's over the moon when Keegan tells her he's booked an appointment with a doctor. Billy tries to get through to Jay about Ruby, but he doesn't seem so keen in sharing his feelings. Stacey and Jean attend a meeting with the doctor together at the clinic, and it's confirmed that Jean has cancer and she will start chemo in a few weeks. However, the thing that gets to Jean the most at the meeting is seeing a whole bunch of questions Stacey has written down, and she realises how much Stacey cares. Stuart offers to deliver a letter from Dot to the solicitor about Dr Legg's estate but he was taken aback when Rainie invites Stuart over to the car lot and his instant presumption is that she fancies him. Bailey completely refuses to go to the party, so Karen gathers a plan to throw their own party. Stuart turns up to the car lot in a smart shirt and stinking of aftershave. He wasn't expecting Rainie to come up with the conclusion of stealing Dot's money. Jean persuades Shirley into letting her stay at The Vic for a while to get out of Stacey's feet knowing how much her care is going to make her struggle. Jay and Ruby share a BBC transmission date. It ends in tatters when Jay concludes that Billy persuaded her to, he then tells her he wouldn't go out with her if she paid him. Stacey's devastated when Jean tells her she's moving in the Vic and instantly assumes it's her fault. Stuart turns up at Jack's where Rainie is cooking dinner. Stuart sticks to his guns that he isn't taking the money. Rainie tries her best to presume him otherwise, which throws him over the edge and he throws a jar at her, which fortunately misses. Rainie then declares she knew the real him was under the good boy scout act and Stuart warns her not to test him.
