Rodney puts Carl in a difficult position next week. He’s questioned for Carl’s crime of hitting a cyclist – which carries a hefty prison sentence.

Will Carl cough up the money – and which one of them will pay for the crime?…
There’s yet more turmoil for Laurel next week – first it looks like the parish move will go ahead, but just when she’s getting used to the idea of moving, she feels sick – and is convinced she’s pregnant.

Still plodding the Square, DCI Marsden opens up an old investigation and tries to manipulate Ben to get what she wants, and as he’s fed up of being left out of Phil and Jay’s new venture, will he do something he’ll later regret? (I’d say it’s almost inevitable).
And elsewhere, Jane throws a fundraising event at The Vic which leads to an unexpected offer that may take her away from Walford forever…
