Ryan returns to Albert Square, unaware of everything that happened while he was away. However, this doesn't last for long as when he visits the Minute Mart, Heather and Denise comment on how Whitney needs her brother around her. When Fatboy enters the shop, a confused Ryan asks what's been going on with Whitney, so Fatboy takes him to see Dot and she explains everything. Later, when Ryan returns to Pat's house, he starts to question Whitney but the reality of the situation becomes too much for him and he walks out. When Ryan has a confrontation with Janine about the matter, she tells him to forget about what happened with Rob and instead concentrate on supporting Whitney. Realising she is right, Ryan decides to apologise to his sister.
Meanwhile, when Yusef catches Masood giving money to Phil, he stirs up the situation by telling Denise, who in turn mentions it to Zainab. When Zainab confronts her husband, she's disgusted as he admits he has been doing some gambling for Phil. Later, Zainab rebukes Yusef for causing trouble but he turns the topic of discussion onto Syed, telling Zainab that it was hypocritical to disown him as she also brought shame on her family. As the day continues, Zainab decides to pay a visit to Syed. She waits until Christian has left before arriving at his door. They start to talk and Zainab is longing to confide in her son, but she soon decides that she shouldn't be there and leaves. In the evening, Zainab makes a phone call and tells the person on the other end that she never stopped loving them. Who is she talking to?
Elsewhere, Heather tells Shirley that 'Kevin' wants to meet her at The Vic, unaware that it's Ben and Jay who have sent the message. Still dubious over online dating, Shirley decides to go with Heather to support her. When Kevin doesn't show up, Heather gets upset and Jay starts to feel guilty, telling Ben that he needs to stop playing games. Later, Ben is confronted on the Square by school bully Nathan. He then arrives home and writes another message to Heather from her 'mystery man'.
Elsewhere, Ashley tells Fatboy that he has reported Mercy to immigration; Tamwar and Afia tell Masood that they have set a date for their wedding; and the investigation into Mercy begins as a man starts taking photos of her.
