Ian is mugged in a dark alley and has his wallet stolen. At the same time, someone throws a brick through Ali and Sue's window. Ian starts thinking about getting a knife for protection. Naima and Farrukh leave the Square to marry and start a new life together.

Darren finds Ian with a bloody nose whilst chasing the person who threw the brick through the flat window. Ian arrives at the Vic and tells people what has happened. Darren sneaks out from the dilapidated house next door to Carmel's flat.

Barry and Colin return home from a night out to find their flat has also been burgled.

Naima makes her final plans to shut up the shop with Farrukh, as she prepares to fly back to Bangladesh the following day.

Carmel catches Darren checking out the dilapidated house. Darren tells Carmel he plans to turn the dilapidated house into a squat.

Lofty tells Lou he and Michelle are in financial difficulties, but will manage. Lofty tells Den he thinks he deserves a raise but Den ignores his suggestion. He hands him sponsor forms for a charity night the Vic is planning.

Residents notice Naima has not opened her shop.

Michelle takes Den upstairs in the Vic and asks him to start paying monthly maintenance for Vicki. Den tells Michelle he will not pay for anything for Vicki whilst Lofty is planning to adopt her, and he will only contribute to her if Lofty does not go through with the adoption. Michelle is angry with Den and threatens to kill him if he ever goes near Vicki again.

Naima places presents and flowers on the table of Number 45, unable to bring herself to say goodbye to the Fowlers. Lou walks in on her as she is about to leave and wishes her well.

Willmott-Brown tells Colin that they are more alike than they think as they tend to have the same ideas, despite having different opinions.

Den catches Ian looking up knives in a catalogue and tells him violence is a mug's game and he must not ever use weapons as defence.

Charlie tells Nick he thinks they should work together in whatever he is up to, and that Dot would be proud of them too.

Graham arrives at Colin's flat to tell Barry that his wife has miscarried, but Barry has gone out clubbing with Donna. Graham talks to Colin about his feelings and ends up crying. Barry and Donna ride a bike through the Square but get stopped by police.

Den tells Pete about what Ian has been up to. He then finds Lofty closing up the Vic alone. Lofty makes a remark about how he does more than Den ever does, winding Den up. The pair begin arguing, which results in Den sacking Lofty.
