While mourners paid their respects at Tina's grave, tempers flared when Peter, played by Chris Gascoyne, arrived drunk, clutching a bottle of vodka, and shouting at Rob.
Despite Steve McDonald's attempts to calm Peter, who was having an affair with Tina before she was murdered, he and Rob are soon involved in a punch-up.
After Rob and Peter's scuffle is diffused, the latter was seen emotionally embracing Steve.

Among the crowd were Eva Price, Gail Platt and her son David, who looked downcast and tearful while the cameras rolled.
After the gruelling hours of filming and miserable weather the cast celebrated the end of the day by assembling for a triumphant group photo.
Tina's dramatic exit will air in May, although the person behind her death will remain a mystery for several months.
"We've got some massive stories coming up that are really different," said the show's producer Stuart Blackburn. "Everyone knows Tina is going; it's going to be an incredible, spectacular exit and it's going to take us right through autumn and December. It's going to be massive."
Michelle Keegan also recently spoke to HELLO! Online about her "daunting" exit from the hit ITV show.
"Corrie is all I've known since I got into acting," the 26-year-old said. "I'm really excited because it's going to be a massive, explosive ending."
