A nervous Billy slowly opens the door to Garry and Dawn's flat and creeps through to the living room, where he sees Jay on the floor with his hands tied behind his back. They make eye contact and Billy urges the youngster to stay quiet. Marching into the room, Billy states that he's there for Jay, but before he knows what's happening, Bird punches him in the face. At the court, Terry's escorted in and spots his wife Viv, who gives him a knowing nod. Smiling to himself, Terry believes that everything's in hand.
On the Square, Dawn races across to the flat with Garry and Minty and they see a police car and ambulance speed around the corner. Billy's on the floor with a bloodied face and just as Bird's about to start attacking him again, the police storm the building. Later, a limping Billy exits the house but instead of getting into the ambulance, he's driven off in a police car.
Meanwhile, Jack's reeling from Ronnie's confession that she wants a baby. Upset by his reaction, Ronnie gathers her stockpile of baby clothes, while Jack insists that it's not the case that he never wants a child with her - just not as things stand at the moment. The arrival of Jack's friends for a poker night interrupts them, but he takes them to The Vic instead. When he returns, he finds a trail of poker chips leading to the bedroom. Ronnie's shocked, though, as when she starts kissing Jack, he yells that he's not going to give her a baby. He explains that it's too soon after Danielle and that she has years left to have another child.
Elsewhere, Bradley's unconvinced by Syd's claims that Dot could have dementia - until he hears that Dot's locked herself out of the house; Ian decides to turn the trip to Scotland into a cycling holiday; Syd's new landlord is revealed as Ian Beale; Peter's shocked when Ian reveals that he's planning on recouping the money Stacey owes him by selling Chops the pig; Nick's plan seems to be working when Syd suggests that they take Dot to see a dementia specialist; Mo reluctantly sells Chops to Chinese Pedro; and Ian surprises Jane with a tandem bicycle.
