Kathy's business venture gets off to a bad start, as the opening night of the new bistro has a very poor turnout. Jack wants to share more than just his homework, but Michelle has lost all interest in him. Sanjay tries his luck at a game of poker against Nigel and ends up losing the £800 deposit for the flat him and his wife Gita are due to move into.

Sanjay's stall is going well, and he has found a flat to move into on the Square.

Frank questions Kathy's reasoning for turning the café into a night-time bistro. She then faces a setback when Tricky Dicky tells her that her caterers for the evening will not be attending due to a kitchen fire.

Aidan's injured knee does not stop Arthur from training him.

Jack returns to the Square with a camera, telling Rachel it is a hobby of his. He asks her questions about Michelle's whereabouts.

Kathy notices that Mandy looks sad and asks her to hand out flyers for her bistro's opening night.

Jack meets Pauline in the launderette and takes her photos. She invites him over to Number 45 for tea in return. He talks to her about his relationship with Michelle.

Tricky Dicky is determined to resolve the catering problem for Kathy. He turns to Steve, who wants £300 for the job.

Sanjay asks Mandy to help him on his stall. She does, but as a result stops handing out flyers for Kathy.

Michelle is shaken when Rachel tells her that Jack is back on the Square. Rachel has an interview for lecture post in a further education college.

Grant, Jules, Nigel, Pete and Sanjay have a friendly poker match in the Vic in the evening.

Michelle refuses to stay at Number 45 after seeing Jack there.

Kathy's optimism over the bistro's opening night being a success is dampened when no one shows up.

The poker match gets serious when Sanjay and Nigel begin betting with £800. Nigel ends up winning the match - leaving Sanjay out of pocket. He panics and tells Tricky Dicky he gambled with the deposit money on the flat, and that he and his wife cannot move in with Richard as she is pregnant.
