While Katy offers to cook a meal for Steve and Michelle as a thank you for letting her stay, Ryan insists that they go out to see a band. Peter can't stand the thought that Rob and Tracy are going to get off scot-free but Carla tells him she'll deal with them in her own way and not involve the police. Sophie and Jenna appraise the responses to Sally's dating agency advert. Karl tries to get out of going to Dev's but Stella insists. Tracy insults Carla when she orders her to clean out the loading bay at the factory but Carla retains her composure, much to everyone's amazement, Michelle especially. However Carla decides that it's time to set Tracy up and rings a friend to help her. Gary turns up at the hospital, begging again to see his son. Tina agrees. Carla's friend rings Tracy, pretending to be the supplier interested in the silk and asks for it to be shown to a rep who is visiting the area that day. She makes an appointment for Rob to meet the rep at a lock-up. A guilty Rob starts to get cold feet but Tracy persuades him to continue with their scam. Gary is overcome to see his son.

At the end of the working day, Rob sets off for the appointment. Sally gets a text from a man through the dating agency asking her to meet for a drink. A furious Izzy tells Gary to get away from the baby but Tina castigates them for fighting over a sick infant. She tells them they're banned from being near the baby until they sort themselves out.
