Nick makes David go for an early morning pre-wedding jog. Max isn't well and Sally and Tim have cancelled their acceptance of their invitations. Nick is confident while Carla is full of nerves and doubts. Amy winds up Tracy showing off the dress that she's going to be wearing to the wedding. Tracy assures Robert that she hasn't given Carla a second thought. Jenny is hurt that she hasn't been invited. Tracy is refused service in the cafe as they are laying on a Connor family wedding brunch for Carla. She steals a card with the name of the florist who's proving the flowers and walks out with a smile on her face. The Underworld girls pamper themselves and get ready in No.5. Tracy rings the florist and claims the main reception is now in Crewe and to re-deliver there as soon as possible. A puzzled Todd overhears. Roy tells Carla that Hayley would have enjoyed seeing her so content. She, in turn, asks Cathy to honour a pledge she gave to Hayley to keep a protective eye on Roy. Michelle tells Johnny that the flowers are stuck in a four-mile traffic jam outside of Crewe and he instantly guesses who is responsible. He confronts Tracy who happily admits the charge and offers to fill the gap but at a heavy price. The Underworld girls compare the presents they've bought Carla. Johnny insists on waiting in the shop while the order is made up. Tracy sends an unhappy Todd round to No.8 with some of the flowers and a sealed card. He warns her that she's going to provoke Johnny too far. Cathy shows off her present - a painting of Nick and Carla as Adam and Eve. Tracy drops the news to Johnny that she's sent a card to Nick. He rushes round to No.8 and, making excuses, manages to steal it. Opening it, he finds it's just a smiley face. A watching Jenny sees his anger and frustration. Dressed to the nines, she fishes for an invite to the wedding but he's too distracted. Johnny summons Tracy to the factory for the £900 charge in cash which he claims is in the safe. He demands a truce from her. Tyrone washes engine grease off his face with Fiz's dress by mistake. Tracy refuses Johnny's demand and threatens to spill the beans. He thrusts her into a stockroom and locks her in there.
