Phil rejects Ronnie's suggestion of getting professional help to overcome his drug addiction. When the police come knocking on the door, Phil orders Jay not to answer it and he flees out the back. His escape leads Ronnie and Billy to believe that he must have gone back to taking drugs. Meanwhile, Shirley explains to Heather that Phil is no longer her problem and that the fire has given her added incentive to move on by getting a new job. Following an interview, Shirley returns to Minty's flat with the good news that she got the position.

Later, Shirley finds Phil, who tells her that he is fed up with lying. Shirley then challenges him to confess to the police that he started the fire at The Vic. Phil goes to the police station but Shirley stops him, informing him that it was just a test to regain her trust and that they will get through everything together.

Bianca enters and there is further speculation as to who the biological father of Sam's baby is.
Meanwhile, Sam tries to avoid the responsibility of looking after her baby. Claiming that her family has rejected her, Sam asks Minty if she can live with him for a while. To Heather's annoyance, Minty agrees. Later, at the Arches, Sam flirtatiously convinces Ricky to take her back to his house so that she has somewhere private to breastfeed. She then confesses that she still loves him. Shortly after, Bianca enters and there is further speculation as to who is the biological father of Sam's newborn baby, Richard. Later that day, Bianca encourages Jack to reconsider his responsibilities regarding his possible child and he later tells Ronnie that he needs to know for certain whether or not the baby is his. Jack, Ricky, Bianca, Ronnie and Sam all agree to have a paternity test.

Elsewhere, Pat insists that she will be okay without Peggy as she has other friends, but later confesses how much she'll miss her; and as Bianca and Ricky gossip about The Vic, Bianca suggests that Peggy may have burned it down for the insurance money.
