Rachel has to deal with some unsatisfied customers. Ian introduces Pete and Kathy to Ronnie. Dot helps Jules recover after the mugging.

Mrs Hogan returns to the Square with her son, Sean Hogan, in search of Rachel. They are directed to the café where Kathy and Pete are discussing Ian's invitation to his flat to meet his new girlfriend. Pete suggests Rachel will be in the Vic, so they head on over and wait for her.

Mandy and Sam visit Jules but he is not very talkative.

Rachel enters the Vic and Sean immediately introduces himself to her. He leads her over to his mother and begins talking about the items she sold to her stall the previous week. He wants them back, and is willing to pay her for them. Rachel informs the pair that she has sold some of her items. Sean is particularly interested in how much some of the items were worth and is disgusted to learn the fishing reel sold for £150. He tells her he thinks he has a lawsuit on his hands.

Kathy and Pete meet Ronnie. They are speechless to learn she has three children already.

Rachel tells Grant, Phil and Sharon about the predicament she is in. Tricky Dicky also arrives and listens to her problems. He goes to Sean and explains he cannot take Rachel to court as nothing illegal has been performed.

Kathy is wound up when Pete will not stop talking to Ronnie, meaning she cannot get a word in edgewise.

Dot plays cards with Hattie, Jules, Mandy and Sam at Number 27.

Sean is driven out of the Vic, while Rachel tries to give Mrs. Hogan some money to make up for her losses. Mrs. Hogan rejects the cash and leaves. Rachel is adamant she will make sure no one will get at her like the Hoganses did again.
