Tina is still annoyed at Dom for forcing her to retract her surrogacy offer to Jacqui. As Dom insists that if she is going to have a baby then it has to be his, Tina is left wondering why she always finds herself trying to please everyone. At work, Pete takes Tina to task for being late but then leaves her confused and suspicious as he goes on to reassure her that their difficulties are water under the bridge. The note left on her table says the teachers' night-out party is at The Loft, but when an embarrassed Tina is the only one there, she soon realises Pete has been up to his tricks. But an even more menacing threat from Pete awaits her.
Jess is horrified to learn from Kris that her clothes have been strewn all over the village by Zoe. When she tackles Zoe about the state of their friendship, Zoe is determined she and Jess will never be mates again. Annoyed at being pushed out, Jess is struck with an idea when Gilly inadvertently mentions that he has been entrusted to drop off Zoe's promo video for Evissa. When Jess kindly offers to do it for him, we know she's up to no good.
Beth is chuffed as Neville compliments her for doing well in her new job at Drive 'N' Buy. A grateful Beth tells Gilly it's good of Neville to take her on as this will help her raise the money she needs to buy the Red Tiger guitar for which she is saving. But she soon finds herself on Neville's wrong side when the angry parent of a teenage girl takes him to task for selling alcohol to a minor. Seeing Beth's discomfort, a quick-thinking Gilly plays the gallant hero and saves her day.
A new stylist, Niall, is in town, and makes quite an impression on his first day at Evissa. When Louise's ankle goes, Niall comes to her assistance. Evidently getting the wrong end of the stick, Warren grabs Niall and roughs him up but he gets punched on the nose for his trouble as a surprised Niall instinctively reacts. Meanwhile, Louise and Warren find themselves deeply embarrassed by Zoe's promo video for the new-look Evissa.
