Judy refuses to talk to Zoe and panics, calling Gary back from work. She fears that Zoe wants Katie back and tells Gary that she'll never let it happen. Leanne encourages Zoe to fight for her rights and demand more money from the Malletts. Samantha is disturbed by the way Les leers at her and worries that her body language is leading him on. Fred tells Ashley that he wants him to manage the Corner Shop, leaving him to look after the Butcher's Shop. Ashley is pleased and assures him that he can be mean and hungry in business. Judy wants to move away but Gary makes her see they can't run away all their lives. When Gary invites Zoe in for talks, Judy disappears with Katie. Gary is amazed when Zoe tells him that she's spent all the money and fears she's after more. Zoe tells him she doesn't want Katie for herself but isn't sure what she wants either. She gets annoyed when he offers her money and tells him to stuff it. When Natalie tells Les that his remarks are upsetting Samantha, he apologises to her but gets annoyed when Des, misreading the situation, warns him off. Gary finds Judy and Katie in a shopping mall and assures her that it's safe to come home as Zoe just wanted more money.
