Maisie is delighted at the prospect of becoming the landlady of the Woolpack and buys into Val’s plan to persuade Diane that she is too old and tired to run the place and will therefore sell to Mark. After procuring some tablets from Nathan, Maisie makes Diane a drink having crushed the medication in. However, Val drinks the tea instead and Maisie's plan fails. When she notices Val asleep on the sofa, Maisie mistakenly believes she's killed her boss and throws a vase of water in Val's face, instantly waking her sleeping employer. Diane finds the whole incident hilarious whereas the co-conspirators are forced to go back to the drawing board. Elsewhere, Chas decides to have a talk with Aaron when she notices he's become closer to Victoria. She's satisfied with Aaron's explanation but the same cannot be said for Andy and Daz. Daz is not impressed to see that Victoria is developing feelings for Aaron. Back at Butler's, Andy lectures Victoria about the danger of getting close to the Dingles in the midst of his problems with the family. Daz warns Victoria to back off and she's pleased to notice jealousy in his words. Also, Lexi is left with a sour taste in her mouth when Carl mentions that the wedding is way down his list of priorities. She decides to plough on with the preparations without him. However, when her wish list comes to an extravagant cost she is forced to re-evaluate her expectations and purchase from an auction website. Lexi returns home delighted to have reduced the cost to three grand, but she still can’t raise any enthusiasm from her fiancé.
