Kat can sense that there is something wrong with Alfie, but she wrongly assumes that it's down to the anniversary of Nana Moon's death. The troubled couple vow to make this Christmas the best ever for Tommy, so Alfie continues with his efforts to turn The Vic and Albert Square into a beautiful festive extravaganza - complete with a German Christmas market.
Later, Roxy comes across a door key which has been left behind at The Vic. After failing to find out who it belongs to, Roxy places it into a glass behind the bar for someone to claim. As the day continues, the key disappears and Kat assures Alfie that a man came to collect it earlier. That evening, however, Alfie hides a gift for Kat in her jewellery box and is stunned to find the key placed inside - it's clear that Kat has lied to him yet again...
Meanwhile, Derek drives out of Walford to make some arrangements for Max's stag party. However, when he stops at some traffic lights, he is terrified when he spots some familiar men staring at him from the next car. Derek attempts to speed off, but finds himself followed into a dead end. When Derek resorts to running away on foot, the men catch up with him and demand to know where Max is. Derek refuses to co-operate, so they leave him in a bloodied state as punishment. Back on the Square later, Derek warns Max that 'they' want their money within 24 hours...
Elsewhere, Zainab rebukes a queue-jumper at the café for her lack of manners. However, she soon regrets her remarks when she discovers that the girl is Ayesha, the family friend who will be staying with the Masoods while meeting her suitor in London. Zainab quickly changes her attitude by frantically trying to make Ayesha feel welcome. Later, an interfering Zainab tells Tamwar that he is a much better guy than the one that Ayesha is set to marry.
Also today, Joey tends to Lauren when she cuts her hand and the chemistry between them is obvious, while Bianca shows her softer side by selflessly putting her tips into Lola's jar at the salon.
Alfie and Fatboy try to drum up business for their Christmas market stall.
