Following the fire damage at R&R, Billy bolts for cover when he sees Ronnie, while Max informs Jack about the incident - and they're both surprised as to why Ronnie didn't mention it. Later, Ronnie stops by the hospital where Jack asks if she started the fire herself in the hope of cashing in on the insurance. They're soon distracted when they receive the news that Jack's secured a place at the private clinic. Later, Roxy tries to reassure her sister over the club's finances and is about to offer help when Danny wanders in. With Ronnie soon out of the way, Danny sets to work convincing Roxy that she shouldn't be helping her sister with money.

Max is frustrated when Darren insinuates that Ronnie probably started the fire on purpose. While Darren learns that Billy carried out electrical work in the club on the night of the fire, Max confronts Ronnie about the incident. Ronnie insists that the electronics weren't fixed by anybody, prompting Max to agree to sort out the insurance. Roxy overhears Max on the phone to the insurers and reveals that Ronnie did have someone in to fix the electrics. At that moment, Max receives a text from Darren about the fire - he knows who started it. Stunned that Ronnie would hire Billy for large-scale electrical work, Max and Darren presume that she paid him to torch the club instead. Billy denies setting fire to R&R but admits that he did change a circuit board.

Armed with the evidence he needs, Max tracks down Ronnie and firmly states that if the insurance company discover that Billy tampered with the electrics, they won't pay out - and Jack will lose the club and his place at the clinic.

Meanwhile, Zainab's cooking Syed's favourite meal but Tamwar's disappointed when he realises that it's not for his brother, it's for Bushra and her husband Nadim. The dinner goes well and Masood's delighted when Nadim invites him to mosque, while Zainab's put out to learn that she's been snubbed for a friend's wedding due to recent events. Ignoring Syed in the café, Masood walks out with a concerned Jane in tow. Masood's frosty with her, which leads Jane to admit that, with hindsight, she should have told him about Syed and Christian before the wedding. Back at home, Tamwar's becoming further frustrated with his mother's bossy ways and turns to Syed for advice. Upset about the family situation, Tamwar scans the family photo and cuts out Syed and Amira, before revealing to Zainab that he's no longer working at Masala Queen.

Elsewhere, Ben steals a bottle of whiskey from The Vic in a bid to prove himself to Jordan and Abi; Heather suggests that she and Billy pay their rent with the money he received from Ronnie; Ian tries to prevent Jane from finding out about Lucy's abortion and lies that her book club has cancelled; Billy's defensive when a suspicious Heather asks if he'll be getting any more work from Ronnie; and determined to keep Lucy's secret just that, Ian books Jane a ticket to see her mother in Florida.
