Although Priya (Fiona Wade) is confident she has met her match in Rakesh, her brother Jai (Chris Bisson) is not impressed by the arrival of his old business associate.

Meanwhile, David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden), the father of Priya's daughter Amba, also grows suspicious of the businessman, and discovers that he isn't all he seems.
