Sunita's up in court on charges of assisting unlawful immigration and bigamy. She pleads not guilty and a date is set for the trial. When they refuse her bail, Sunita's devastated, as is Dev and all her friends. Danny buys the factory girls a top of the range sewing machine, a Silver Stitcher. They decide to have sewing races to decide who gets to use it. Canny Danny's pleased his plan to increase output has worked but Kelly clocks his smug expression. Dev visits Sunita in prison. She's inconsolable, blaming him for her predicament. Dev's very upset. Audrey has a go at Maria for leading Tyrone up the garden path. Maria defends herself saying how much she likes him. Kelly flirts unashamedly with Danny who returns the favour. Jamie sees what's going on and tells his dad to leave well alone. Tyrone has Maria in stitches and she remembers why she likes his company so much. She asks him out on a date next week. Tyrone accepts. Jayesh and Mena visit Sunita. It's clear they think Dev is at fault and not Maya. Claire's unhappy when the girls suggest Ashley doesn't really want to marry her if he's prepared to wait until 2007. Dev grabs Maya in the hallway outside her flat. Although caught off her guard, Maya soon has the upper hand. She goads Dev saying how the police will never be able to pin anything on her and Sunita will remain in prison for a very long time.
