Ryan Connor has a major surprise in store when his brother Ali Neeson goes into self-destruct mode, making everything very intense for the family.
After another sleepless night, Ali cons Moira into letting him in the surgery so he can collect something, and he takes some anti-depressants before heading to the bistro.
He starts flirting with Bethany and gets drunk, and things get heated when Michelle and Robert arrive back and find him fighting with Ryan.
Ali storms out and Ryan is shocked when Robert tells him something which changes his entire outlook.
Michelle goes to find Ali in a state in the flat, but he tells her to leave him alone and stumbles out of the flat.

The drugged-up Ali then picks a fight with a couple of bikers outside a tattoo parlour, and they give him a proper kicking.
Ryan comes to help Ali and takes him home, and Michelle is horrified by the injuries.
But Robert tries to lighten the mood by talking to Michelle about having a child of their own – what will she say?
Meanwhile, Leanne is furious with Nick and won’t let him explain anything about his marriage, but he tells Carla the deal is off and he is keeping his share of the factory.
He thinks she has nothing over him, but soon Elsa arrives and says Nick has defrauded her out of £40,000 to buy his share.
Carla suggests to Elsa that they could go into business together as she technically owns his shares.
