Mick has been shot in the arm; he is taken home to The Queen Victoria pub (the Vic), where Mariam, a former nurse, befriends the family and treats Mick's wounds; Mariam decides she wants to stay in Walford. Bernadette calls the police, while Aidan sends Keanu home and then threatens Vincent because when he was a police informant, he had Aidan's brother sent to prison; Phil stops Aidan shooting Vincent and Vincent promises to sell his bar, the Albert, and give Aidan the proceeds. PC Khan and DCI Alsworth arrive and find Robert, Milo and one other man tied up in the van; they deny knowing Phil and Vincent, who were hiding. Aidan's former wife, Ciara, arrives and tells the police that she owns the van involved and she staged a robbery as part of security training, so convinces the police to leave; Ciara realises Aidan was involved and makes a phone call to someone.

Two days later, Mick is recovering in bed and Halfway, an old friend of Mick and Linda's son, Lee Carter (Danny-Boy Hatchard), is still in the Vic so Linda tells him to help in the pub; the Carters are due to move out following their eviction, but Linda realises that is not possible; Mariam helps Mick again and Linda tells Mick that they will stay to get his share of the heist money so they can buy back the pub. Vincent worries that nobody will receive their heist money so Aidan assures him that if they are patient they will get it. Ciara meets Aidan, accusing him or arranging the robbery, but he denies being involved; Phil recognises her and confronts Aidan; Aidan says they are taking back his money that she took from him, and tells Phil where the money is. Max watches as Dr Notley tests his daughter, Abi, for any brain activity following her fall; Abi does not react due to her brain stem death but Max insists she reacted; he tells his other daughter, Lauren, who also fell and broke her pelvis, that Abi is doing well, but Max's brother, Jack, tells Max to face the truth, but when Max's niece, Sonia, suggests seeing a medical negligence lawyer, he meets Harry Wilson who says they can apply for a court order. Lauren visits Abi and realises Max lied, so slaps him when he arrives.
