Wednesday 13th: Tersely refusing Declan’s offer to restore Dale Head to how it was, Hazel explains to Bob that she doesn’t feel ready to let go yet.

Elsewhere, Aaron storms out when Cain tries to get him to listen to Chas and talk to his barrister.
Thursday 14th (7pm): In the café, Carl is forced to intervene and hold Jerry back when he tries to go for Aaron. Chas is devastated to see that Aaron doesn’t even try to defend himself when Jerry insists that his statement will see him go to prison. As Jerry is bundled out by Bob and Carl, Hazel and Aaron are left reeling with guilt. Bob’s annoyed with Chas for pressuring Hazel to pay for an expensive lawyer for Aaron, but Chas explains that she contacted his barrister and discovered he has no experience in this area. Carl hears Chas tells Bob that she needs £70,000 to pay for a decent lawyer and asks Scarlett for the money to pay for it. Later, Chas reels when Carl arrives telling her that he has the money…
Thursday 14th (8pm): Chas is conflicted when Carl asks whether she could forgive herself if she doesn’t accept his offer and Aaron does end up in prison. Gennie tries to talk Chas out of it, aware there will inevitably be strings attached, but Chas is wavering. Chas feels bad for pressurising Hazel when she realises that she’s stressing about trying to scrape together some money, so she reveals she’s got hold of the cash. Later, Chas is relieved when Aaron takes in her suggestion about hiring a top-notch lawyer, but she’s left frustrated when he walks out after discovering Carl is the source and later tells her to refuse his money.
Friday 15th: Chas asks Hazel to try and talk Aaron into accepting her money. Aaron comes to the café and Hazel encourages him to reconsider accepting the offer. Wanting to talk to Hazel, Chas barges into Dale Head and is stunned to see a shrine to Jackson. Feeling for Hazel, Chas points out that she’s stopping herself from moving on. Chas is unsure of what to say when Hazel tells her that she wants Jackson back – she knows he could have lived a life like Steve is. Concerned for Hazel, Chas tells Aaron that he needs to talk to her. Realising Hazel’s not okay, Aaron takes control and asks Chas to leave – pointing out there’s nothing she can do. Elsewhere, while Hazel meets with Steve and Annie, Aaron is keen to avoid them.
