Sam is unhappy about Zak and Lisa's upcoming holiday, knowing he'll be left alone with Cain. Zak overhears Sam swearing he won't tell about Cain's hidden stash of money - Cain gives Zak some to help pay for the trip. Zoe refuses to support Chris' engagement to Charity, and warns him to make sure he gets a prenuptial agreement. Charity tells an unhappy Chris that she's going to move back in with Chloe until the wedding to help keep Zoe's anger at bay. Miss Strickland warns Donna about the notice on the board advertising her party - Eve admits to Donna that she put them up so more people would attend.

Donna and Ollie pretend to study until Bob and Viv leave for the night. Lisa tries to bolster Sam's fears, but when he asks if he can join them and Belle, she says they wanted some alone time after a difficult year. She asks if he knows where their passports are - Sam lies that he hasn't, then secretly burns them. A fed up Zoe tells Chris that she's leaving again, to which Chris jokes that Charity wanted her to be maid of honor. The party begins, with Donna mostly worried about when Marc will arrive. Zak reassures Lisa that they don't need passports anyway, as they're going to see the British Isles via camper van. The party continues, with the alcohol already almost all gone. Marc arrives with Eve, having just run into her outside. Eve encourages Donna to steal several bottles from Viv's shop. Andy is drunk and Robert encourages him to drink even more so he can have alone time with Katie. Andy goes to be sick. Viv and Bob ask Terry about the gossip on Charity and Zoe; Terry demurs.

Ollie tells them Andy has passed out upstairs; Robert isn't bothered, but Katie goes to check on him. Donna is unhappy at the amount of time Eve is spending with Marc, even as Eve insists she's trying to help Marc give Donna a chance. When they leave together, Donna abruptly ends the party. Louise suggests an airplane-themed night at the Woolpack to Bernice and Diane. Back at Ed's place, Emily resists his romantic overtures. Sam pleads with Zak one last time to not leave him alone with Cain, but Zak insists Sam can deal with a bully and praises him for his strength.
