Tanya looks after the car lot while Max is at a bank meeting, but she soon has a huge problem to deal with when the vehicles are towed away due to the supplier going bust. When Max returns, he calls the supplier, but Tanya interferes by shouting down the phone at them. Max is furious as the supplier hangs up following Tanya's outburst. This leads to a heated argument between the couple as they bring up many of their past problems, but the tension soon turns to passion as they fall into each other's arms.
Later, with the intimacy now well and truly back in her relationship, Tanya realises that she also wants everything else to go back to the way it used to be. Tanya then proposes to a shocked Max, but he declines the offer for now - convincing his partner that they should wait for the right time and make the proposal special.
Meanwhile, Alfie has accepted Roxy's offer of a loan, but he lies to Kat by telling her that Eddie lent them the money. Later, Kat confronts Janine over the missing cash and threatens to contact the police unless the lies stop. However, it's Jean who soon ends up in trouble as she is questioned on harassment charges. Soon afterwards, another showdown between Kat and Janine leads to the pair angrily throwing drinks over each other. Kat later realises that it's time to put a stop to the arguments and seeks out Janine, who leaves her stunned by revealing that Eddie is broke and couldn't have lent Alfie the money.
Elsewhere, Alice and Derek have agreed to spend the day together. However, Derek is still furious over yesterday's incident and confronts Lucy, knowing that she was responsible for Alice's drunken state. Lucy soon fights back, though, as Derek's parole officer Joseph arrives on the scene and she grasses him up. Doing some digging, Joseph realises that Derek is lying about being a changed man and now working at the car lot. Joseph warns Derek that any trust between them has now gone. Things get worse for Derek when Alice rebukes him for breaking his promise and abandoning her all day. After Alice tells him that she wants nothing more to do with him, a furious Derek blames Lucy for everything - threatening her, taking more money from the café's till, and warning that there'll be more trouble to come…
Elsewhere, Poppy arrives back on the Square to help with the preparations for Janine's wedding, while Abi receives a letter offering her a scholarship trip to Costa Rica but realises that she can't leave Jay.
