Nick calls Damon and confirms that the medicine he was expecting has been delivered.

Ryan is terrified, while Nick’s young son, Sam Blakeman (Jude Riordan), dives under a table and calls for his father. Just as Nick answers, a gunshot is heard from the restaurant.
Nick, Leanne and Damon rush to the Bistro fearing for Sam and Ryan, as the police arrive after being alerted to the gunshot. A trainer then arrives at the Bistro with a sniffer dog – will the drugs be found? And who is shot?

3. Stephen plots against Carla
While Stephen is still helping Sarah and her business partner Michael Bailey (Ryan Russell) build their new empire, the secret killer gives them a list of retailers so they can think big with their designs.

But when Rufus announces he would like exclusive rights to their products, Stephen’s scheme is soon threatened when Carla’s husband, Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne), takes Rufus away in his cab.

And if she does, could she regret having confronted Stephen?
4. Adam and Sarah think about their future
As she focuses on her new business, Sarah reminisces about her family plans for the next week, as Adam broaches the subject of having a baby together. The couple had previously hoped to have a child, but 2022 proved a bit too dramatic for them, so that was apparently put on hold. But in the upcoming scenes, Adam reveals that he’s taking his wife out to dinner, because he wants to discuss something.
As the week continues, Sarah admits she still has to work late. Adam replies that they need to take the time to talk about having a baby; and Sarah explains that it’s just not the right time. But after thinking about it, she promises her husband that she is ready to think about having a baby when the time comes. Will the pair welcome a mini Barlow in the future?
5. Laurence’s past is revealed
Todd Grimshaw (Gareth Pearce) pulls up in a cab as Sean Tully (Antony) and his beau Laurence walk up the street. The driver recognizes Laurence and warns Todd and his mother Eileen (Sue Cleaver) that their friend needs to watch his back. Todd tells Sean about the taxi driver, so Sean grabs Todd’s phone, finds the taxi app, and shows Laurence a picture of Mitch the driver. Laurence says he’s never seen the man before, but at home Eileen reveals she found a photo of Laurence with his late wife, who has her arm around Mitch. Sean insists they have it all wrong and adds that Laurence gave them a mini-break.
But Eileen and Todd decide to find Mitch, and he reveals that he and Laurence were having an affair when the latter’s wife, Lindsey, fell off the mountain to her death – and Mitch thinks Laurence pushed her. Eileen and Todd are shocked and break the news to Sean. When Laurence tells him that their holidays go through the mountains, Sean hides his discomfort, and he is even more worried when his boyfriend explains to him that there will be no telephone service in the village. Is Sean in serious danger?
6. Roy’s phone use spirals out of control
Roy continually checks his phone for updates on the Roman fort excavations, and Carla confides in her niece Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher) that she is concerned about Roy’s obsession with his smartphone. Later, Nina finds Roy tapping on the phone and begins to understand Carla’s point of view, worrying about him. So she suggests that he put his phone away and work the rest of his shift without looking at it. Will Roy be able to take up the challenge?

Bernie reveals that the ladies’ captain believes they will waive her membership fee and offer her a scholarship. Dev does his best to look happy for her, and his daughter Asha (Tanisha Gorey) tells him he should be proud of Bernie rather than jealous. Will Dev be able to get rid of his jealousy?
