Jay is struggling at home, unable to cope with having Ian and Shirley living under the same roof. At the same time, Shirley is keen to reassure a distant Ian that everything will be fine with Lucy as she will soon see sense. Shirley then begins to chat about Heather, which prompts Ian to react abruptly by turning off the TV. Pleased that Ian seems to be making progress, Shirley speculates that he responded because she mentioned Lucy - unaware of the reality of the situation.
Ben soon decides to help Ian by taking him over to the café, believing that seeing Lucy could result in a further breakthrough. However, Lucy is far from pleased to see Ian, shouting at him in front of shocked customers. As Joey leads Ian out, Lucy is confronted by Christian over her behaviour - but she insists that she no longer cares about Ian. Soon afterwards, Phil is livid when he discovers that Ben has been trying to help Ian. Phil reminds his son that they are only in the clear as long as Ian's memory is blank, leaving Ben to wonder what is more important - helping his brother, or protecting himself?
Meanwhile, Ray arranges to meet up with someone, just as Kat is on the phone to her mystery lover arranging a rendezvous. Could Ray be the man in question? At the same time, Denise expresses doubts about Ray and Kim living together, which causes a heated argument as Kim brands her sister jealous. As the day continues, Kim asks Ray directly about whether they're moving in together - but she's left humiliated when Ray explains that the flat is actually for Sasha and her mother.
Later, one of the five suspects in Kat's affair mystery is eliminated…
Elsewhere, baby Scarlett comes home, but a paranoid Janine pushes Michael away as she struggles to deal with being a first-time mum. In the end, Jean is the unlikely person who offers Janine some reassurance that everything will be fine.
