Coronation Street is set for a turbulent week, when Gemma and Chesney's baby boy Aled goes missing.
On the cobbles, Gemma prepares for Aled's surgery – something that Freda isn't too impressed about.
Ignoring Freda's frustrations, Gemma goes to the hospital to meet other mums whose children have had cochlear implants, in a bid to learn more about what her son might face.
Freda struggles to hide her annoyance but Gemma assures her that after the operation they’ll still maintain links with other deaf people, but Freda isn't convinced.
Meanwhile, Gemma's mum Bernie is sure that Aled will be 'normal' once he’s had his operation, which leaves Freda upset and hurt by the statement.
Freda offers to take Aled for a walk and then overhears Bernie and Chesney discussing the hassle of attending deaf groups and how they want Aled to talk properly and fit in – which upsets her even more.
Embarking on their walk, Freda doesn't return, which leaves Gemma in a panic.
Confiding in Roy, Gemma reveals that she fears Aled has been taken by Freda.
