Deirdre tells Mike she can't stand working for him as he's on her back all the time. She melts when he tells her that he's worried about Alma's cancer scare. Vik is interested to hear that Nick has left and makes a play for Leanne. Spider pushes him to organise a treat for Nita's birthday and they plan a night out. Mike hands over the £10,000 to Julia in exchange for the negatives, relieved that his nightmare is over. The Baldwins are relieved when Alma's tests come back clear. She is touched when Mike cries in her arms. Linda bemoans being manless and hard up. Spider buys a present for Nita but isn't able to give it to her as Steve impresses her by buying champagne for two. She enjoys it when Steve makes bitchy remarks about Spider out of jealousy. The clubbers return home at 2.00am to find Sally's van on fire. She is woken in time to watch the vehicle, and all her stock, explode.
