Masood's financial worries are mounting up as he knows that he cannot make the mortgage payment after AJ spent the money on a motorbike. A desperate Masood visits Syed to ask for a loan, but is left disappointed when his son is unable to help. He is also shocked to hear that Christian has left Syed. Back at home, Masood considers trying his luck on a gambling website, but before he goes ahead with this drastic plan, AJ reveals that he has sold the motorbike and they can now pay the mortgage.
With things looking brighter for now, AJ decides to go all-out to celebrate Bonfire Night. AJ has bought a stash of fireworks and even hired dancing girls for the occasion. As the festivities begin on the Square, Masood insists to AJ, Syed and Tamwar that they should all stick together from now on. However, the celebrations are cut short when Zainab returns unexpectedly and switches off their music…
Meanwhile, Christian heads to the Beale residence as he needs somewhere to stay following his split from Syed. An emotional Christian tells Lucy that he hopes he'll still be allowed to be a part of Yasmin's life. Lucy is sympathetic and urges Christian to try making things work with Syed. Taking this on board, Christian visits Syed. Syed begs him to come home, but still can't bring himself to say that he loves Christian. As a result, Christian is forced to walk away and things between them aren't resolved.
Elsewhere, Jack is happy as he returns from a weekend away with Sharon, but he soon grows annoyed when Phil demands more of Sharon's time to discuss the residency case. Later, Sharon is shocked when Phil presents her with an engagement ring, but she accepts that it's necessary to make their relationship seem authentic. However, Jack isn't best pleased when she is unable to remove the ring.
Also today, Alfie and Kat seem close again as they sit cuddled together watching the fireworks from Tommy's room, while Kim is disheartened as everything seems to be going wrong at the B&B.
Christian arrives at Lucy's place - needing somewhere to stay.
