Tina is terrified now that Rick Neelan is back and furious with Tommy for lying to her about the money that Terry owes. Tina tries to explain to Tommy how bad Rick can be but despite her attempts, Tommy is convinced that he can protect her. Sunita and Karl are still locked in a passionate embrace, Sunita lets Karl know that he can't just expect her to be waiting for him whenever he fancies something and makes it clear that she's the boss. Impressed by her refreshing attitude, Karl pulls Sunita in for another kiss. After a heated discussion with Pat Casby, Eileen and Paul's romance is on the rocks when Paul cancels their romantic getaway and takes Lesley out of the care home for good. A drunken David makes a fool of himself in the Rovers with Eva. Tommy finally begins to understand how serious the situation with Rick is and reluctantly agrees to Terry's idea of insurance fraud; to burn Se7enth Hea7en to the ground. Kirsty is waiting for Tyrone in the Rovers. Fiz, Beth and Kirk are having a drink after work and invite her to join them. Despite Beth's protests at sharing a drink with a copper, Kirsty begrudgingly accepts their offer. Tyrone is thrilled to see her making an effort with her new co-workers. A regretful Stella talks to Steve about the situation with Karl; she feels awful for accusing him of stealing from her.
