Michael is frustrated when clients refuse to deal with him over Janine, and focusses on buying 89B George Street.

Michael is horrified to learn Janine has transferred money from the business account. A frantic Billy arrives and drags Michael to Turpin Road, where Butcher's Joints is being boarded up on Janine's orders. Michael seethes.
