As Billie sits on the swings, swigging a beer, he is startled by his friend Mitch who pretends to be a mugger. The joke turns sour, though, when Mitch tells Billie that all the crew are going to be there for the robbery tonight. Billie had thought that the idea of robbing the Vic was just talk but he could not have been more wrong. Determined not to get caught up in the affair, Billie agrees to go to dinner at the Argee Bhajee with Bianca and Whitney but under more pressure from the crew, who have found out that Billie has lied to them about getting rid of the gun, the boy feels that he cannot possibly back out now.

Lucy Beale, feeling the weight of guilt on her shoulders, comes very close to telling Jane the whole truth about the abortion. Stopped by Ian, the girl breaks down when Leon confronts her and accuses her of playing mind games with him. She tells Leon that she was telling the truth about the pregnancy, and admits to having had an abortion.

The Slater family are absolutely thrilled to welcome Stacey back into the house. Stacey herself does not seem so pleased to be back though. Mo wants some answers from the prodigal daughter but Jean insists that they let Stacey talk to them in her own time. It all gets a bit too much for Jean, however, when the perfect dinner she is cooking spoils and she throws the food off the table in a tantrum. Stacey is reluctant to help but after some choice words from Mo, and a little chat with a disapproving photograph of Bradley, Stacey comes into the kitchen to support her mother. It seems as if the Stacey they love is finally back.

Phil and Peggy are thrilled when the social worker arrives and has quite a lot in common with Phil, having grown up in a pub himself.

Carol, who thinks that Billie has been spending the day sorting out job interviews, agrees to go out for a drink with Billy at the Vic, much to the amusement of brothers Max and Jack. After a quick trip to the ladies, Carol is horrified when she steps out and finds her son Billie holding a gun to a nervous Phil. Billy Mitchell tackles the boy and the supposed gun is revealed a water pistol.

Whitney and Bianca are concerned, having been stood up by Billie at the Argee Bhajee. Seeing Jack and Chelsea enjoying another romantic dinner together, Whitney asks Jack to check out the Vic and Chelsea is left with the cheque, disappointed.

Terry, the social worker, is unimpressed by the violent show in the pub and tells Phil and Peggy that the Vic is not a suitable home for Louise. To the Mitchells’ surprise, Shirley steps in and announces that Phil and Ben are moving in with her at the weekend. When the social worker asks who she is, Shirley responds saying that she is Phil’s fiancée. Phil, although shocked, does not argue with her.

Jack, Max and Carol take Billie home for a stern lecture. Though Billie suggests that other boys in his family have done worse, he cannot deny that he has made a serious mistake. Jack promises to do everything that he can to protect Billie if the boy forgets about his estate friends. Billie winces as he sees a green scarf poking out from a drawer. In the middle of the night, he goes down to the kitchen to see that the back door is open and the green scarf is gone, along with gun it was concealing.
