It is Jack's first day back on the Hebburn Advertiser - and he has plans to transform it into a paper that makes a difference. Joe's doctor tells him he has to relax to help with his heart problems and Pauline makes it her mission to de-stress him. Luckily, Sarah's hippy sister Marial is in town with essential oils, hands-on healing and a penchant for big Geordie bears. Sadly for Joe it means that he is banned from pork pies and cheese, and is forced to drink peppermint tea, even on Jack's stag night. Vicky and Denise have their own plans to celebrate Sarah's final night of freedom.
