Phil has received an unidentified photograph but is confused about who is in the picture. The situation becomes more mysterious when Phil and Shirley notice that the front door has been left open, and when they close it, they spot another photograph stuck behind the door. It shows the boy from the first picture, but older. Later, as Phil tries to fix Alfie's car, Jay confesses that he left The Arches unattended for a short while. Phil immediately suspects that someone could have tampered with the car, and he's proved right when Jay pulls a plastic bag from the petrol tank.
When Phil takes the bag and washes it, he finds yet another photograph and this one has a date written on the back. Phil finally realises who the boy from the photograph might be and heads straight round to Pat's house to show her. Pat is shocked and digs out an old newspaper cutting which has the headline: "Homeless man identified from car lot fire". The photograph in the paper is exactly the same as the picture that Phil has received…
Meanwhile, Jodie and Poppy are not speaking to each other following the fall-out over Anthony. Tyler wants to get the girls back on good terms, so he sends a text from Poppy's phone to Jodie to arrange a meeting. In the end, Poppy arrives to speak to Jodie while the ditzy blonde is packing her things. They manage to repair their friendship, but they later tell the Moon boys that it's not just one of them moving out now - it's both of them. Jodie leaves to find Darren, while Poppy decides to move back in with her mum.
Elsewhere, Afia and Tamwar are concerned about Zainab and Yusef's relationship and how it may be frowned upon in the Muslim community as they've already been married. However, when Afia raises her concerns with Yusef, he says that only Allah can judge them.
