Sinead passes away with Daniel and Bertie by her side
Not sure that Sinead is well enough for their surprise Christmas, Daniel is told by Sinead that she is and on her insistence Daniel, Sinead, Ken, Tracy, Beth, Kirk and Craig sit down to Christmas lunch. Despite her obvious pain, Sinead’s determined to enjoy herself.
After Daniel’s over protectiveness causes some friction he storms out leaving Sinead assuring the family that he'll return once he's calmed down. When Bethany finds Daniel sobbing in the ginnel, Daniel breaks down in her arms, wishing he could change the circumstances.
Spotting their embrace, Ken angrily orders Daniel to go home to his dying wife, leaving Bethany in tears. Feeling distraught, Bethany admits to Audrey that she's in love with Daniel.
At the flat, Sinead reaches for her notebook only to find that it’s Bethany’s notebook which she left behind and as she starts reading her short story, it's clear that she's in love with him. As Daniel returns, he tries to deny there's any truth in it, but Sinead suspects he's lying and begs him to be honest with her.
After admitting that it meant nothing, Craig bundles Daniel out of the door leaving Beth to hurry up to the flat to check on Sinead. Confronting Bethany over her behaviour, Craig tells her he's disgusted with what she's done.
Meanwhile, Adam finds Daniel drunk and in self-destruct mode in the ginnel and rushes to tell Ken about Daniel's state of mind interrupting Peter and Carla's return from Italy.
Waking up without Daniel by her side, Sinead remembers the row they had and feels sad. With Beth's help, Sinead records some messages on Daniel’s laptop for Bertie so that when he's older he'll realist just how much she loved him.
When Tracy pays Sinead a visit to tell her that Bertie's going to need her dad and no matter what he's done, Daniel loves them both with all his heart, her words begin to resonate with Sinead and she invites him over.
Talking candidly about death, Sinead wants reassurance from Daniel that she can trust him to be there for Bertie when she's gone. Assuring her that he will, Sinead forgives Daniel and urges him to stop punishing himself.
In a bid to appear positive, Sinead asks Daniel to fetch her some flowers with a lovely scent so she can imagine she’s outside.
As the day progresses Sinead makes plans with Billy for her funeral and Dr Gaddas reveals it's too late to move her to the hospice due to her fragile state and Sinead realises it’s time to start saying her goodbyes.
Waking up to find everyone gathered around her bed, Sinead takes comfort from them bickering around her. As they leave, Sinead squeezes Daniel’s hand and passes away peacefully with both Daniel and Bertie on the bed with her. Lying down next to her, Daniel cries silent tears knowing he and Bertie will have to get used to life without her.
As the Tinkers and the Barlows gather in the Rovers waiting for news of Sinead, Beth takes a call from Daniel to inform them that she has died.
Josh is stabbed during a prison riot and David's prime suspect
When a riot breaks out in the prison, David retreats to his cell. David's later shocked when Abe drags Josh into his cell and hands David a pair of scissors, telling him to do his worst.
Back on the street, Max visits Shona and she's delighted when he admits to her that he's worried about Marion's proposed plan. After assuring him that it won't happen, Adam calls Shona, Sarah and Marion to a meeting, hoping to resolve their issues.
As the prison riot unfolds on the news, the family watch on in horror and Shona receives a phone call from David to say that Josh has been stabbed and she needs to find him a lawyer. But was David behind the attack?
Despite his denial, Shona has her doubts and it seems her fears are realised when Max shows her a video someone's sent him of the prison riot which shows Josh collapsing from a stab wound, with David stood nearby.
With Max recognising Josh, he wonders himself whether it was David who attacked him. Without wanting to let on, Sarah and Shona both secretly think the same thing. When David phones from prison, he's horrified to hear that Max has seen the video and swears he had nothing to do with it. But Shona’s unsure what to believe.
Receiving a visit from Imran, David is told that the video doing the rounds clearly implicates him in Josh's stabbing. But does that mean he's to blame?
