Dev staggers to his feet and watches in horror as his shop burns down. Sean is hurt and angry and tells Kelly to leave. Kelly thinks that he's overreacting but she goes. Frankie, Liz, Eileen and Deirdre go out for dinner. They decide to have a girls' pact and after a few glasses of wine they start swapping stories about the men in their lives. Deirdre admits to sleeping with Dev. Shelley's hoping for a quiet night with Charlie watching a video but he's not keen. As Dev talks to the police and the fire brigade his mobile rings, it's Verinder from the Swinton shop to say the alarm's going off. Dev panics and shouts at her to get out quickly and take the kids with her. Jason arrives home and finds Sean upset. Sean tells him how Kelly tried it on. Jason finds it funny but Sean points out that he wouldn't want a man coming on to him. Dev's horrified as he receives more calls to say his other shops are exploding one by one. Fred suggests a game of poker in the back of the Rovers after hours. Charlie's all for it. Shelley's disappointed and agrees to have an early night. Dev phones Sunita to make sure she's okay.
