Craig is still sulking with Tommy for having a go at him over the photograph. Sarah and David see the newspaper article accusing Gail of being in cahoots with Richard. They're angry that she hid it from them. Karen hands out her new business cards which she got done herself from a machine. Jason asks Katy out. She turns him down. Karen tries to entertain a client in Mike's office. Mike takes over making Karen look small much to Janice and Fiz's delight. The client later hands Karen her business card back pointing out that she's misspelled "Superviser". Mike is furious when Karen and Janice have a cat-fight in the factory in front of Karl Timms, Mike's new client. Gail apologises to David and Sarah for hiding the article from them. She thanks Sarah for being so supportive. Gail decides it's time to face the Street and explain that she had nothing to do with Richard's dealings. Emily is sympathetic and understanding. However Vera rows with Gail still believing that she was involved in stealing their savings. Tony Stewart bumps into Jason in the cafe. Jason is off-hand but Tony persuades him to sit down and talk to him. Jason agrees to meet him for a drink one evening. Martin decides that Gail can cope now so he moves back to his flat. Unbeknownst to Gail and the kids, Richard is watching the house.
