Moira (played by Natalie J. Robb) suffered from a horrific amount of trauma this week in the ITV soap, which included being attacked by Emma Barton (Gillian Kearney) and going into surprise labour.
But despite the character nearly dying from a haemorrhage in hospital, when she discovered the psychotic Emma had kidnapped her newborn baby, she was determined to find her on her own.
Escaping from her hospital bed, Moira managed to trudge home where she began loading up a shotgun with bullets to presumably kill the kidnapper.
Luckily, Moira was stopped in her tracks by a call from Victoria Barton (Isabel Hodgins), who broke the happy news that her baby had been found.
