Now that he's told his parents the truth about his stabbing, Samson plans to flee the village and escape justice with help from dad Sam.

Lydia is against this course of action, and intercepts Sam and Samson's secret meeting to implore Samson to come clean to the police.

Samson finally tells the police what really happened with innocent Matty, and Sam is furious at Lydia!

Lydia must face the music with the Dingles, while Matty's mum Moira Dingle (Natalie J Robb) is relieved for her son, as Sam vents his anger at her too.

The rift between Sam and Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley), who is also Matty's stepfather, reaches an almighty high, and Sam punches Cain to the floor!

Matty is given hope at last when he's told about Samson's confession, but he's filled with renewed fear when he returns to his prison cell to find transphobic Robbo waiting for him.

Robbo goads Matty with violent threats, and the latter is left shaking with fear as he tries to block out the abuse from the other inmates, terrified for his life.

Cain, meanwhile, arrives at the Dingle homestead to ensure that nephew Samson doesn't run away again.

Things get heated as Sam and Cain go head to head once more, and Samson is nervous to be left alone with Cain.

Moira and Matty's wife Amy Barton (Natalie Ann Jamieson) are stressed as they wait for news on Matty, but will he be released? And what will the consequences be for Samson - from the police or from Cain?

2. Scheming Tom King guilt-trips Belle King

Tom continues to make Belle feel guilty about the termination, and secretly makes plans to put distance between them and Belle's family.

Viewers have already seen Tom accept a vet job in a remote part of Wales, lying to Belle that he would be taking her on holiday.

Belle had an abortion but claimed to Tom that she had had a miscarriage, too terrified at the prospect of bringing a baby into their home, as Tom's controlling behaviour and violent abuse is a constant presence in their marriage.

Will Belle realise just what Tom is plotting?

Rose is in despair when she hears Will telling Kim it's time Rose moved out. To derail their conversation, Rose deliberately sets a horse loose at Home Farm!

Rose soon receives a mysterious message, and goes to meet a dealer on the outskirts of the village, who gives her a vial of tranquiliser and tells her to await further instruction.

Later, baby Evan is discharged from hospital, and Rose is overjoyed as daughter Dawn Fletcher (Olivia Bromley) refers to her as 'mum' for the first time. Rose is left conflicted about following through with the plan to spike Will's drink and entrap him.

She goes ahead with it, but just as Will is about to drink from the spiked glass, Dawn and Kim return home and two more drinks are poured. Rose loses track of which drink is the spiked substance - as she panics, who will drink from the toxic glass?
