Max wakes in his car after being thrown out of the house last night by Tanya, while Tanya's inside throwing all of Max's belongings into bin bags. Abi's mood lightens when Max turns up, but Tanya's still livid that he never told her about Lauren being in care. After slamming the door in Max's face, Tanya tells Bradley that he can stay at the house for as long as he wants as long as he doesn't keep Max informed as to what's going on. As Max and Jack vie for Tanya's attention, Tanya vows not to let men consume her life any longer - it's just her and the kids from now on. Taking pity on his brother, Jack offers Max a roof over his head.

Later, Jane tries to make amends with her best friend Tanya, but Tanya lambastes her for allowing Lauren to be taken into care. In her defence, Jane delivers a few home truths. Afterwards, Max tries to speak with Tanya again, while Abi's becoming more and more frustrated by being sidelined and tears up the homecoming card she made. Realising that her family's falling to pieces, Tanya is determined to put things right. However, she's shocked when the social worker turns up with the news that Lauren doesn't want to return home.

Meanwhile, Billy reaches the end of his tether with Janine's behaviour and decides to throw her out of the flat. Turning on the water works, Janine begs Billy for a second chance. She promises to pay back all the money she stole from Peggy and turn over a new leaf. At the club, Billy helps Janine get back her cleaning job and it's not long before Janine's scheming side resurfaces - she starts drinking on the job and listens in to an argument between Jack and Ronnie. Intrigued, Janine asks Billy to tell her about Jack Branning before finally meeting him in the flesh.

Elsewhere, Jane's annoyed with Ian for abandoning Christian; Bradley asks Dot if he can move back in, but Dot suggests he stay at Tanya's for the kids' sake; Ian agrees to give the catering business two more weeks; and Dot soon begins to think that she's taken too much on by letting Dotty stay.
