Jason tells Sarah that it's nice to see her smiling. Kelly Crabtree is back after not getting married. Her husband-to-be slept with her chief bridesmaid after catching her with a cocktail waiter. Kelly asks Danny for her job back but is told she has been replaced by Sean. Leanne is still flirting with Dev. She tries to kiss him again, and he sacks her. Dev then explains to Sunita what had happened and she believes him. Karen is counting the money she has collected and Steve tells her that he wants the old Karen back. She says there is no old Karen, only this one. Danny winds Kelly and Sean up about who can have the job then tells them that they can both work at Underworld.

She gives Karen £50 for the charity telling her that it's the money Steve gives her every week as paternity guilt money.

Steve McDonald (to Karen McDonald): "I'm happy with who I am, I'm not a bad person. I put money in charity boxes, I work hard, I don't rip people off, I like who I am, and I like who you are as well. You're not a bad person, you don't have to prove anything to anybody."
