This week on the square Janine's newborn fights for life, while Jean does a shock u-turn over Michael.
Janine wakes up in hospital and is desperate to see her newborn daughter. Michael informs Janine that their child is very ill. Soon afterwards, Jean pays a visit to the hospital to confront Michael, but she has second thoughts when she sees how weak the baby is.
Janine is frantically worried as the doctors deal with her baby daughter's emergency situation. Needing support, she asks after Michael, but he is nowhere to be found. Ricky later finds Michael at home, where he has been up all night. He begs the troubled businessman to come back to the hospital, so Michael reluctantly agrees. However, when Ricky falls asleep while waiting for him, Michael sneaks out with a packed bag and begins ransacking Butcher's Joints - taking anything he might find useful.
Michael is soon interrupted by Jean, who locks the door to Butcher's Joints and throws the key into the ransacked mess. Michael frantically searches for the key so that he can make his escape, but he is stopped in his tracks when Jean urges him not to run away from his ill daughter. Pulling out Michael's St Christopher charm, Jean reads his feelings like a book and reminds him that he is capable of love. Ending the discussion, Michael gathers his things and leaves - but will he do the right thing?
Later in the week, Kat is stunned when Jean announces that Michael isn't to blame for everything, but soon changes her mind when Jean explains why.
