Zainab, Yusef and Masood are appalled following Tamwar's confession that he and Afia are already married. Syed tries to defend his brother and reveals that he already knew the truth. When the girls' dance ends, Afia joins the warring group and she gets emotional as she discovers that Tamwar has confessed. Zainab and Masood try to blame each other for what has happened, while Yusef brushes off Denise when she tries to talk to him, claiming that he doesn't need her help with his daughter.
Tamwar soon reveals the truth about the previous wedding to everyone else at the Mehndi, prompting Yusef to announce his consent and pleasure at the marriage. Tamwar and Masood also reconcile, with each apologising for their actions. At the same time, Yusef's attentions turn back to Zainab as he tells her that he wants to be with her. They share a moment, but it all gets too much for Zainab and she rushes off. However, Shameem has been watching and has seen everything.
Wasting little time before making a scene, Shameem announces to the guests at the Mehndi that Yusef and Zainab have been having an affair. Everyone is left stunned by the claim and a furious Masood punches Yusef. Denise also confronts Zainab, who denies everything before fleeing. Yusef tracks down Zainab shortly afterwards and assures her that he'll sort out the situation. At the same time, Tamwar opens up an envelope from Yusef and discovers a cheque for £10,000 inside, while Yusef meets his cousin Tariq outside on the Square and a heated conversation between the pair follows - but why?
Elsewhere, Shirley is still furious over Phil's arrangement with Rainie, but he asks his partner to trust him. However, Shirley makes it clear to Phil that she can't trust him, even when he explains that it's just a case of him and Rainie being able to understand each other due to their shared experiences. Shirley is soon left to wonder whether she'll ever be able to trust Phil.
