Michael is astounded to learn Jack’s sold his share of the gym to Janine. Janine declares she’s going to turn the gym around, smugly offering to buy Michael out. Michael refuses and uses Dot to guilt trip Jack, telling Dot that Janine is planning a massive gym overhaul. Jack reassures Dot that won't happen. Dot warns Michael not to take his anger out on everyone else, reminding him that Scarlett is stuck in the middle. Later, Michael relinquishes the gym’s financial records to Janine and presents her with a report concerning a potential takeover of another gym. Janine can’t help but be impressed.

Denise helps Ian with the catering for the salon opening. However, after paying Carl, Ian’s unable to pay any staff. At the salon, Denise is rushed off her feet and fumes to be left alone all day.

Sadie’s offering a 25% one day discount for Beauty’s grand opening. Lola and Poppy compete for a bonus over who can make the most sales. Poppy accidentally tells Lola to apply 35% discount.
