Robert leaves and Carla takes the opportunity to have a few glasses of wine in peace, wholly unaware of the fact that Steph's ex-boyfriend and his accomplice are waiting outside the Bistro and that Tracy is in the kitchen. Tired of waiting for Steph, Jamie and his mate burst in and demand to know where the safe is. Carla's explanations that she doesn't work there are given short shrift and she tells them that if they just leave now, having done nothing wrong, all will be well. Jamie though decides to grab Carla's bag into which she has slipped her engagement ring. She charges after him but he jumps in the car and starts up the engine. As the car moves off, Carla won't let go. Robert, out to buy wine for himself and Tracy shouts 'Hey! Stop that car!' Of all people, it is Phelan who bravely stands in the middle of the road to try to make the car stop. Kevin grabs him and drags him out of the way. Carla lies in an unconscious heap on the ground.
Roy returns. His mother, Sylvia, described by Anna as a 'force of nature, a hurricane, an earthquake.' has despatched 4 carers in as many days. According to Roy, she has done so with 'her usual insensitivity and acid tongue.' She is now refusing to let anyone in.
Anna and Kevin are discovered kissing in the garage by the very person they least wanted to find them - Sally. Sally asks, perhaps to make sure her eyes are not deceiving her, 'Kevin! What are you doing?' Then to Sophie, 'Look what I found!. These two groping each other like a couple of teenagers.' Fortunately they are needed back at Craig's memorial of Maddie which the council are trying to get rid of.
Apart from having two grown up daughters with him, it seems a little odd that Sally would mind Kevin going out with Anna. Fundamentally, it seems that in Sally's opinion Anna is not good enough and that it is a reflection on her, which is her real objection. 'I thought he had better taste, 'adds Sally.
Ken goes to the salon to discover a stressed Audrey. He would like to have a drink with her this evening, but she claims that she and Gail are going to see a film. Asked which film, Gail comes out with Mad Max, all about 'car chases and dystopian futures,' adds David. Not then the obvious choice for a hairdresser in late middle age, but then, people do surprise you. Gail tells her mother that Ken would have known that Audrey was lying. Maybe Audrey wants to delay anything happening between her and Ken too soon in the wake of Nessa. Probably wise, for now.
Gail invites Audrey round to experience how cold it is in her bedroom. Audrey suggests a thick rug, but Gail doesn't want that. She wants underfloor heating, which is very expensive. Jason is asked in to see what might be able to be done. Gail quizzes him about Michael and Eileen but Jason's not going along with it. Viewers are naturally thinking about Callum's body, decomposing underneath tons of concrete.
