As Nick, Leanne, Robert, Andy and Steph prepare for lunchtime, suddenly the bistro is plunged into darkness. It transpires that one of the builders at the arches site has accidentally cut through the mains power cable. Kevin’s grateful as Pat Phelan, one of the labourers on site, offers to sort it out.
Meanwhile Jamie and Lee watch the bistro, clearly planning something. Wearing only some sexy lingerie and a coat, Tracy sets off to surprise Robert. But as she arrives at the bistro she listens in horror as Carla implores Robert not to go into business with Nick as Robert tells Carla that their night of passion meant nothing and he only loves Tracy!

In the kitchen, Tracy reels as Robert tells Carla he regrets their night together but his future is here whether she likes it or not. Angry Carla reckons she can get Nick to change his mind but dismissive Robert leaves. With Carla alone in the bistro, Tracy eyes the knives, hell bent on revenge.
Suddenly Jamie and Lee break into the bistro, intending to rob the till and put the frighteners on Steph. Pinning Carla to the floor they demand cash. Scared witless, Tracy quietly leaves, forgetting her phone in the process. With no sign of Steph and a till devoid of cash, Jamie and Lee grab Carla’s bag and do a runner. Furious, Carla goes after them.
As Jamie and Lee jump into their car intent on making their getaway, Carla clings onto her bag and is dragged down the street by the moving vehicle. Pat Phelan positions himself in front of the oncoming car but realising it’s not going to stop, Kevin drags him out of the way, while Robert rushes to Carla’s lifeless body.
Sally’s appalled to realise Kevin and Anna are an item and furious with Tim when she discovers he already knew. Suddenly remembering Sophie, Sally orders them to follow her to the ginnel where Craig and Sophie stand protectively in front of Maddie’s mural.
With Sally adamant the mural is staying, the council worker grudgingly admits she can appeal. Sally resolves to fight all the way. Meanwhile Anna’s horrified to see Phelan back on the street, working for Kevin.
