Ali secretively blockades the side door to the café in the early morning with bins and cardboard.

Ian notices smoke coming from the café. He rushes on in. Pete follows him in and drags him out - the café is on fire.

Trevor tells Mo that he was fired because he was caught putting the materials he stole from his workplace back, like Mo suggested he did. Mo feels bad.

Trevor starts working at the Vic but is quickly moved to the car lot when he starts pouring away unfinished drinks for the customers.

Dot visits Ali at the café and is shocked to see what has happened. She learns that Ian is buying the business off of him and that he set fire to the café himself out of desperation.

Simon goes to see Sharon at her flat and answers her phone for her. It is the bank. He tells her it is probably regarding her overdraft. She gets hesitant and dismissive over it.
