Feeling lost without Jack, Ronnie tries to make amends with a stubborn Phil, who refuses to forgive her for her betrayal of the Mitchell family. Over at R&R, Sharon is quick to gloat when she finds out Jack and Phil have washed their hands of Ronnie and, as if her day wasn’t bad enough already, Ronnie bumps into Michael, who is quick to wind her up about Jack leaving. Meanwhile, Phil rejects another of Carl’s business proposals so Carl tries his luck with Ronnie…

Later, having been persuaded by Lola to meet her in The Vic to prove to everyone how strong she is, Ronnie is chased by Carl on his earlier business offer, and he refuses to back down, prompting Phil to step in. Faced with the united front of Phil and Ronnie, Carl backs off. Phil soon invites Ronnie to move back in with him, much to her relief. The Mitchell clan are starting to reform once again.

Alice feels like a failure when she is unable to get her job back, but Michael is adamant they will find another way.
