Michael wakes up to find that Scarlett is no longer in the house. He initially wonders whether Janine has returned, but it turns out that Roxy has merely been to the shops with her. Struggling with his current situation, Michael takes his temper out on Roxy by ordering her to leave - insisting that he doesn't need her running around after him.
Later, Jack notices that Michael is behaving strangely when they are busy discussing a potential sponsorship deal. Jack then asks Roxy to come over to help with the situation. Roxy arrives just as Michael is showing the sponsorship client round, so she goes into the office to check on Scarlett. Michael is furious that she is getting involved in his life again, and struggles to stay calm in front of the client.
Alone with Roxy, Michael admits that he's had news from the private investigator - Janine left the country eight days ago. He then confesses that he was relieved when he thought Scarlett had gone this morning. At the end of his tether, Michael hands his baby daughter over to Roxy, pushes her out of the office and closes the door…
Meanwhile, Danny turns up to see Syed at work and there is a clear attraction between them. Danny then asks Syed out for a drink that night. At that moment, Christian arrives unexpectedly and is oblivious to the chemistry between the pair. When Syed arrives home, he is surprised to see that Christian has invited over Zainab and Masood - they're all having a night together with no kids. Soon afterwards, Zainab hands over her savings to Syed as planned. Later, Christian notices that a guilt-ridden Syed is distracted. It's clear that he has a lot on his mind as he looks at the money from Zainab and Danny's card…
Elsewhere, Phil asks Roxy to take over as the manager of the bar and also ploughs ahead with his plans for the re-decoration.
