When Mercedes thinks that there was no bomb, she punches Clare and pulls on her hair. She throws Clare onto the road, in the path of an oncoming car. The car continues driving and strikes Clare, killing her. The car stops and Paul gets out. Paul tells Mercedes that he wasn't going to miss her birthday. Doug goes back into the building to find Ste, ignoring his bleed which Sinead points out. Jack apologises to Darren and they hug. Doug desperately tries to find Ste. Lindsey and Cindy recognise Paul's car, and spot Clare's dead body on the road. Will tries to keep Ash conscious and apologises to her. Ash asks if he's sorry for killing Texas and Anna.

He wants to see her. Trevor tries to comfort an upset and furious Fraser. Fraser asks Trevor to leave. Paul thinks that Mercedes was trying to push his buttons. Mercedes tells Paul that he killed her mum and refuses to leave with him. Mercedes confirms that she did sleep with Trevor, and they laughed about Paul. Mercedes tells Paul to run along, and he stares at her for a moment before punching her. Ste regains consciousness and calls for Doug. Doug promises to Ste that he won't let him die. Doug agrees to go to Rome with Ste. Mercedes wakes up and begins hitting Paul. She tries to defend herself from him as he tells her that nobody will bring her back from the dead. Suddenly, Cindy hits him over the head with a shovel.
Ste admits to Doug that he's scared, as Doug assures Ste that they'll be found. Ste tells Doug that he just wants him to be happy, and Doug refuses to let Ste give up. Ste jokes that he's never liked Doug's accent. Doug tells him that he never liked the way he made coffee. Ste tells Doug that he was one of the only things in this life that he ever got right. Doug begins struggling to remain upright as he tells Ste that he's always hated him - always have, always will. They are found by emergency services. Cindy panics, thinking that Paul is dead. Lindsey discovers that he is still breathing. Paul wakes up and goes to attack Lindsey. Mercedes picks up the shovel and bludgeons Paul to death. Sienna tells Darren that she never wants to leave him. Will walks out, carrying Ash's dead body in his arms. He falls to the floor, holding her head.
