Janine is in an unpredictable mood. Despite agreeing to stay, the rumours circulating the Square continue to play on Cindy's mind. Ian tries to relax her but it does not work. Meanwhile, Martin is missing Arthur.

A young man phones Frank and interests him in a Mercedes he is selling. He agrees to go and test drive it.

Gita listens to Cindy's troubles, but Kathy's snide remarks do not help Cindy's paranoia.

Hattie overhears Sanjay and Tricky Dicky talking on the market, and thinks it is about Cindy.

Cindy visits Pat, who gives her some truths she does not want to hear.

The test drive on the Mercedes does not go well so Frank pulls over and gets out the car. As the young man drives off, Frank notices Arthur strolling into a hostel. He phones Pat to tell her what he has seen and then heads into the hostel to ask a derelict man if he knows of Arthur. The man proves unhelpful.

Pauline plans to go to the DSS to seek financial help but cannot bring herself to go inside when she gets there. Her day only gets worse when she accidentally sets fire to a pan in the kitchen in the evening whilst making tea for Martin, and then blaming it on him. Ian visits her to offer her money if she needs it.

Frank and Pat cannot understand why Janine is behaving the way she is. Ricky thinks he has the answer - she is going through the same thing he and Diane went through - the children not counting for much in the family.

Cindy heads to the Vic and is badgered by Tricky Dicky. She tries to get rid of him but is unable to, and when she tries to get help from Sharon to see him off, she finds herself defenceless as no one is interested.

Frank tells Michelle about Arthur. She goes searching for him and finds him. They sit down and talk, as Arthur admits he just wants to come home and build bridges.
