Alfie is confused to find the remnants of the pawn slip stub for Kat's ring. Thinking on her feet, Kat claims that she threw the slip away as she knew she couldn't afford to buy the ring back. However, Alfie is convinced that she must still be having her affair, and his suspicions intensify when he hears Kat telling someone on the phone that she loves and misses them.
Kat tells Alfie that she was speaking on the phone to Charlie, who is unwell and needs her to visit. Alfie decides to check this story by redialling the last number, only to be left embarrassed when Charlie answers. Later, as Kat gets ready to leave for her trip, Alfie worries further as Michael collects her and Tommy, insisting that he is going that way on business. That night, things get even worse for Alfie when he discovers the pawned ring in Kat's drawer - proof that she has been lying to him…
Meanwhile, Joey receives a court summons which asks him to decide his plea with regard to the car crash. Joey's day gets worse when Max refuses to let him be part of the family's Christmas celebrations, even after he apologises for the crash. Later, Joey flirts with Lucy after she heads to the R&R with Lauren, hoping that his cousin will finally move on if she sees him with someone else. Joey tells Lucy that he made a mistake by dumping her, so Lucy agrees for him to come back to hers. However, as things begin to heat up between them, Joey tells Lucy to stop - he can't do this as he's in love with someone else.
Elsewhere, Lola is horrified when she discovers that the plan to get Lexi back is now at risk. Shirley soon gets involved again by taking Lola to see Sharon and imploring her to tell Lola the truth - they have no hope of getting Lexi back. Sharon insists that Phil has a good chance, but Lola rushes off in tears when Shirley suggests otherwise. Sharon then rebukes Shirley for taking her bitterness and resentment out on Lola and Lexi.
Also today, a cash-strapped Bianca is touched to find that her family have made a cardboard Christmas tree for the living room - with Pat's earrings among the decorations.
Lucy and Joey share a drink as Lauren watches on.
