The debt collector visits, Bianca will be taken to court if she doesn’t pay in full today. Whitney’s brooding over Tyler but Bianca doesn’t have time for teenage traumas.

Gloating, Janine requests a loan proposal. She’s unmoved when Bianca explains she needs the money now. At Beale’s Plaice, Bianca begs Ian for an advance.

She runs into Mr Lister, knocking them both to the ground. The trader snatches back the money, including Dot’s five pounds. Mr Lister calls the police, reporting Bianca for theft and assault. Distraught, Bianca runs home. She apologises to Carol and, aware she’ll be going back to prison, implores Carol to stay and look after her babies. The police arrive.
