Michael is in a drunken state following Eddie's arrival and soon receives a visit from Kat, who wants reassurance that he still wants nothing to do with Tommy despite his father now knowing the truth, which Michael confirms. Kat is annoyed with Alfie for telling Eddie the truth about Tommy and makes it clear to their guest that she wants him to leave as soon as possible. Later, however, Kat and Eddie have a heart-to-heart about their respective problems and Alfie is shocked by the sudden change in the pair's relationship. At the same time, Roxy questions Michael about the situation with his father, but he doesn't want to tell her anything about it.
Later, during a fight night at the boxing ring, Eddie starts getting to know Jack, Mo and Roxy. However, Michael isn't happy and hands Eddie money, telling him to use it to take 'Anthony, Frankie and Tyler' on holiday somewhere far away. Eddie refuses to take it, though, and asks his son what it will take for him to move on from their dispute. Michael then heads back to the flat, where Ronnie is looking after Amy. Ronnie takes the opportunity to apologise to Michael over everything that happened with Tommy. Michael then spots Roxy, Alfie and Eddie all chatting happily on the Square and it's clear that he's not happy to see Eddie settling in so well…
Meanwhile, Max makes a flirtatious call to Tanya and seems completely uninterested over the fact that Vanessa is preparing an anniversary gift for him. Later, Vanessa hears a conversation about Lauren liking Ryan and becomes concerned about the matter. She confides her fears in Max, who promises that they will talk about it later. Vanessa prepares a candelit dinner for Max, but he's too busy visiting Tanya to talk about Lauren and Ryan. When Max is late returning home, Vanessa gets upset and throws away the dinner that she's spent so much time on. Lauren feels sorry for her, but when Max finally gets back, he doesn't even realise that Vanessa is upset.
Elsewhere, Ricky leaves to take up his new job in Dubai, while Janine and Lydia argue but later call a truce when Lydia has a fall at the flat.
