Ronnie has stayed at Michael and Roxy's place overnight following her shock at Jack paying a visit to see Tommy. Jack tries to call Ronnie to apologise, but she doesn't answer and he has to leave a voicemail instead. When Ronnie listens to the message, she asks Michael to tell Jack that she'll call him back later if he sees him. Later, Michael goes to see Jack at the boxing gym but doesn't mention his conversation with Ronnie, even when Jack asks him to tell Ronnie that he's fighting tooth and nail for her if he sees her. However, Michael does agree to give a statement in support of Ronnie in court when Jack suggests this. As Jack is still bleeding following last night's fight, Michael offers to get him a clean shirt from the flat. While there, he can't resist looking through Ronnie's clothes drawer.
Later, Jack brings all of the Brannings together and he asks them all to write character statements in support of Ronnie for the court case. However, Carol refuses to be involved and this leads to an argument before she leaves. As the day continues, Jack and Ronnie are reunited and he shows her all of the statements. As they both agree to keep fighting the case together, the pair are back on track. At the same time, Kat is also preparing for the court case and gives a heart-wrenching statement to Mo and Alfie at The Vic.
Meanwhile, homeless Janine has slept at the chip shop overnight. She's relieved when Kim mentions that there's a free room at the B&B, but she faces a further setback when Ryan expresses an interest and bags the room for himself. At work, Ian refuses to give Janine any more money after the advance he gave her yesterday. Desperate, Janine sells her locket to Eddie for £50 before asking to stay with Billy and Julie. To her relief, Billy agrees to let her move in.
Elsewhere, Roxy is offended when Michael compares her to Ronnie; Max and Tanya tear each other's clothes off at the car lot, but Tanya has to hide under the desk when Greg knocks on the door of Max's office; while Ryan springs into action when a boy steals Lauren's phone at the café.
