Max is exasperated with Tanya for her recent plan. He decides to sort out his current situation once and for all, so he arranges a dinner for everyone to talk about the problem. The mood is strained when the meal gets under way, but the focus is soon taken off Max when Abi turns up with her new friend Dexter. A jealous Jay is next to arrive and when he sees Dexter, he loses his temper by flying at him.
Jay is soon thrown out of the house, but the drama of the evening doesn't end there as Ava pays a visit. Tanya tries to introduce her to everyone, but Ava gets annoyed and tells her that she has no right. Tanya mistakenly thinks that Ava is upset over not being invited to the meal, but Ava makes it clear that the only reason she's there is to get her son - Dexter!
Meanwhile, Bianca turns up on time for her new cleaning job at The Vic, but it's a no-show from Kat. Alfie lies to Roxy that he's got a supplier to see, but he really goes to see Kat to find out what's wrong. Kat explains that it was too hard to go into the pub, but Alfie manages to convince her to start again next week. When Roxy finds out that Alfie has lied to her about seeing Kat, she isn't best pleased and confronts him about it.
Later, tensions escalate between Roxy and Kat when Kat turns up at The Vic and goes too far by trying to get Alfie to read Tommy a bedtime story. Roxy is pleased when Alfie stands up to Kat.
Elsewhere, Ian offers Denise his spare room to stay in when it becomes clear that she is feeling very down at the moment, while Phil decides to speak to Michael following yesterday's conversation - but Phil's plan doesn't involve laundering dodgy notes...
Ian provides Denise with a shoulder to cry on.
