Alfie's suspicions are plaguing him more than ever before as he wonders how Kat could possibly afford to get her mother's ring back. Holding out some hope that this isn't connected to her mystery affair, Alfie asks Jean whether Kat has borrowed money from her. However, Alfie is left disappointed when Jean explains that Kat hasn't even asked her for cash. Jean suggests that Kat would probably ask Charlie for a loan, but Mo also debunks this theory by mentioning how broke Charlie is.
Taking matters into his own hands, Alfie visits the pawn shop to ask some questions, but the owner refuses to give out any personal information. Back at The Vic, Alfie puts the ring back where he found it, but casually asks Kat what happened to the receipt from the pawn shop. However, Alfie is crushed when Kat lies again, claiming that she threw the receipt away as she doesn't need the ring back.
Meanwhile, the foster worker is due back at the Mitchell house as Phil wants to discuss a new plan for Lexi, but Lola isn't pleased as she feels that he is making too many decisions without consulting her. Her frustrations intensify when she bumps into Shirley, who warns that Phil could push her out of Lexi's life if she doesn't stand up to him and fight for her daughter. When Lola turns up late for the meeting with the foster worker, she promises that she can be a good mum with Phil's help. When the foster worker leaves, Phil rebukes Lola for turning up late. However, Lola stands up to Phil by reminding him that Lexi is her daughter and things need to be on her terms, not his.
Elsewhere, a bored Zainab cheers up when Masood informs her that one of their friends' daughters will be staying with them while she meets her suitor. Zainab is thrilled as she thinks her status has risen considerably.
