Michael's family have arrived in Sheildinch. His wife Leyla is looking forward to starting their new life together with her son Adeeb. Michael's children from his first marriage, Conor and Nicole, are also visiting but Nicole in particular is not so keen on playing happy families. She has already got her eye on Charlie and he is impressed by her too - although doesn't realise she's only 14. Michael's joy at his new home is overshadowed when he realises his brother Gabriel is hanging around and shows no signs of leaving. He needs to figure out a way of breaking this news to Leyla, who is obviously not keen on her husband's sibling. Not only that but Conor and Nicole's mother has been on the phone and it seems the kids' lives are about to change in a big way.

Meanwhile, Gabriel is settling in nicely to the area, albeit by sleeping in his shop. He is an immediate hit with the locals and there's just one person who is seething at his success - Fraser. Stella is delighted she helped Gabriel out in the shop as her goodwill sees him recommending her for a job in the Oyster Café. After a successful trial run Gina offers Stella a permanent job. Stella is really excited and shares her good news with Deek. Fraser catches his chance to wind Deek up and imply that Gabriel and Stella are maybe connecting on a romantic level. It looks like Fraser is hoping to create a few more enemies for Gabriel.

Hayley is now in charge of Just Gordon and when chairing her first meeting with the staff, makes it clear that they are all still friends and she doesn't want anything to change. Gordon tells her later that this was a bad move and she has to be firm. With Hayley struggling with the book-keeping, she decides she has to employ someone to do the accounts for her - but Gordon points out that means one thing - she has to lose a current member of staff. It's Charlie who gets the bullet but Hayley has proven she is in control. Now Gordon has offered his words of wisdom to Hayley it is time for him to leave Shieldinch. But with tensions between him and Jack still high, it's going to take a lot for Hayley to wish him well.
