It's the day of Joey's court appearance as he continues with his plan to take the rap for the car crash. Before leaving for the day ahead, Joey pays a visit to Alice. Following Joey's spontaneous confession at Derek's funeral, Alice wants answers about what really happened on the night her father died. After Alice hears Joey's version of events, she also has some questions for Jack and everyone else who was there that night. Will Alice get the answers she is looking for?
Later, Joey arrives back from court with the news that he only received a suspended sentence. He initially avoids going to see Alice, but soon realises that he'll have to do so sooner rather than later. When Joey does speak to Alice, she tells him that she knows the truth and Joey needs to stop punishing himself.
Meanwhile, a new boy named Dexter arrives on Albert Square and immediately makes a good impression on Abi. However, this doesn't go down well with Jay, who doesn't trust Dexter at all. When Max and Joey arrive home from court, Dexter watches them from afar before staring at a family photograph he has of the Brannings.
Elsewhere, Denise and Ray make a pact never to tell Kim about the kiss they shared. At the same time, Ray presents Kim with a surprise gift, but Kim admits to Denise that she is disappointed it's not an engagement ring. Later, Kim tries to be honest with Ray about her feelings and mentions that she spoke to Denise. However, Ray jumps to the wrong conclusion about what Kim is saying, and blurts out that Denise kissed him. An outraged Kim then heads over to The Vic and slaps Denise.
Also today, Kat secures a cleaning job at the R&R but selflessly shares half of the work with unsuccessful applicant Bianca, while Masood tries to offer Ayesha some philosophical advice about marriage.
After their kiss, Denise feels awkward as she walks in on Ray with Kim.
