Tracy starts to lord it over the staff at the Bistro. Carla’s sick with worry that Tracy will tell all to Nick as Steph and Leanne ask for assurances from Robert about Tracy's position. Max wants to make sure that Callum won't be visiting to see Harry. Erica decides to stay for a meal with Dev, even though she can't cook. Feigning a headache, Carla leaves. She bumps into Michelle and tells her what's happened. Michael tells Eileen about his encounter with Gail. She tells him he deserves to be happy. Robert stops Tracy re-arranging things behind the bar but undeterred she steps forward to welcome new customers. Michael bids an emotional farewell to Andy and Steph and sets off in his ice cream van for Brighton. Dev plucks up the courage to ask Erica to be his plus one at the wedding. Tim starts to get overwhelmed at Street Cars. He takes a taxi booking for the airport and gives it to Tyrone. Michelle tries to calm Carla down telling her that Tracy will lose as much as she does if she reveals all. Andy tells Gail that she blew her chance to rekindle things with Michael. She’s devastated, fearing she’s lost him for good and will never see him again. Eileen stops Tyrone driving off, informing him he needs a special licence costing £300 before he can work for them. Kylie and David leave a seemingly content Sarah in hospital but when they’ve gone her anxiety is clear. The meal is a write-off and Dev and Erica decide on a takeaway. Erica tells Dev that she would love to be his plus one, and she thinks they should be more than “friends with benefits”. He happily agrees. Gail runs after an ice cream van thinking it's Michael but it's not. Audrey sees how upset she is. Robert berates Tracy for throwing her weight around and bitching about Carla. She storms out when he tells her that her attitude is nasty and juvenile. Audrey tries to comfort a forlorn Gail, telling her that Michael will be back. Tracy proves to Carla that she now has the upper hand by ringing Nick on her mobile. Panicked, Carla smashes her phone before Tracy can say anything. Tracy grins smugly and tells a shaken Carla she owes her a phone.
