The complete list of 16 major events is provided here.
Stu suffers another setback
Bridget, Stu’s daughter, permits him to visit Eliza, his granddaughter, at Speed Daal. The meeting appears to be going well until Lucy, Stu’s ex-wife, shows up.
Stu is upset when Lucy tells Bridget to leave the restaurant with Eliza right away as he laments another chance lost.
Alya becomes suspicious over Lucy
Dee-Dee provides Alya with an update on her efforts to review Stu’s case. She explains that Charlie’s bag contained no evidence of Stu’s DNA.
Alya then begins to form her own hypothesis, claiming that Lucy is hiding information that could aid Stu in clearing his name.
Alya becomes determined to raise the funds necessary for a DNA test so that the proof can be formally reviewed once more.
However, Stu soon tells Alya that he wants to forget about the murder investigation because he is still in shock from his upsetting encounter with his family.
Alya steps up her investigation
Dee-Dee informs Alya that she has been successful in obtaining funding for the re-testing of the evidence. Alya tells Dee-Dee that they should proceed without mentioning Stu’s request that the matter be dropped.
Alya extends an invitation to Lucy and Bridget to join her for tea at the Nazir home, but her true motives are revealed when she gives Dee-Dee the mug that Lucy had earlier.
In order to determine whether Lucy is actually responsible for Charlie’s murder, Alya requests that Dee-Dee have the mug’s DNA examined.
Dee-Dee and Alya make a deal
Zeedan worries that his sister lied about dropping Stu’s case when Dee-Dee comes to see Alya with some paperwork that she needs to sign.
Alya’s deceit also annoys Dee-Dee, but she is persuaded by Alya to send the cup off for testing despite her objections. They decide that if Stu ever changes his mind, they can hold onto the results and give them to him.
James leaves Weatherfield
Ronnie tells James that a youth center close to Lewisham is looking for a new football coach because he left Weatherfield County and is looking for a new direction.

When James inquires about the position, he is successful in getting it but is informed that he must start the following day.
James quickly gathers his belongings and bids his loved ones goodbye before leaving the Street.
Jenny becomes suspicious over Glenda

Dev reunites with Bernie
When Aadi advises Dev to commit to a relationship with Bernie if she makes him happy, Dev changes his attitude. Dev considers his son’s advice and advises Bernie to give their relationship another shot.

Bernie tells Fern that she’s willing to continue impersonating her in exchange for payment because she’s in need of money once more.
Ken is accused of favouritism
The amateur dramatics production of Roxanna, which is currently being organized by a number of Weatherfield residents, is still undergoing script revisions by Ken.

Wendy confronts Ken over his meddling
When Brian informs Ken that Mary is considering leaving the play in response to the circumstance, the accusations of bias increase.
In order to solve the issue, Ken tries to distance himself from Wendy and asks Nigel to collaborate with her on her monologue in its place. This only fuels Wendy’s anger because she feels neglected by her ex.
Later, Nigel tells Ken that he wants to ask Wendy out on a date. Ken exhorts him to pursue his dreams, but Wendy is perplexed when she learns of Ken’s involvement. She asks questions of him and speaks to him.
Ken and Wendy discuss their future
Later in the week, Wendy pays Ken a visit and says she was taken aback by his declaration of his feelings for her.
Wendy acknowledges that she shares those sentiments and wants to move forward with Ken, but she also decides to give up her lead role in the play in order to diffuse the situation.
