There's a stranger in Shieldinch and he is showing great interest in the old Versus site, the McKees' former home and an intrigued Amber. Introducing himself as Gabriel to the locals, he sets up camp outside Versus with some goods to sell, but he is not the only one interested in renting the space. Fraser is delighted to tell his doubting father that he is moving Heavenly Herbals in there and setting up shop. Murray is proud that his son is making something of his life, but they are in for a shock when they see Gabriel taking up residence. After a heated debate, Fraser tells Gabriel to be on his way before the letting agent arrives to finalise the deal. Gabriel isn't one to be told though and after everyone is out of sight, he breaks into Versus. Gabriel then uses his charm to get Stella to look after the place while he drums up business. Murray advises Fraser to call the police to get rid of Gabriel once and for all but Fraser doesn't realise what he is up against.

Meanwhile, there's another arrival in Shieldinch and it's the new GP Michael. Michael is concerned about the new area he is moving to, especially when the first neighbour he meets is a very pushy Molly. After checking out his new home, he realises that someone has been in and left a note. Gabriel has found him, and after a quick look in Montego Street, Michael sees that he has set up another business and is already causing problems with the locals. If it's a quiet life Michael is after, he won't find it in Shieldinch.

Hayley's relationship with Jack is going strong and she is enjoying rubbing Gordon's nose in it - even although Jack wants her to lay off. Gordon says he is moving to Tenerife and wants Hayley to go with him. She is intrigued and doesn't mention the offer to Jack, so Gordon takes great delight in telling him himself. Gordon goads Jack that he has nothing to offer his daughter, so Jack decides he has to buy the salon in Shieldinch for himself. In the meantime, Hayley turns Gordon down. Gordon is shocked that she doesn't want to move but has an even better offer for her. When Jack returns from the bank on cloud nine, ready to provide a stable life for Hayley, he finds her in an equally chuffed mood in the Tall Ship. Jack's plans are about to hit the buffers.
