David's shocked to discover that Nathan's behind Tania's blackmail in order to ensure that he votes in favour of Declan's planning application. David's torn when Nathan points out the potential damage he could do and offers to pay the deposit on Farrers Barn if David complies. Meanwhile, Nicola's crestfallen when the wedding car company cancels on her. Rodney, however, promises to sort it and she's grateful when Charlie offers his car instead. Nicola's lifted spirits are short-lived, though, when Jimmy reveals that her court hearing has been scheduled for the same day as their wedding.Elsewhere, Chas and Eve look forward to Nicola's hen night; Ryan and Andy ask Rhona to rent their spare room and she agrees; Charlie, Diane and Victoria head to France on holiday; Aaron's fed up when Cain and Ryan tease him after they catch him glancing at Jackson; and Paddy's shocked when he discovers that he's locked in a bidding war with Rhona for the veterinary practice - he's further angered when he realises that Marlon knew all along. Nicola's devastated that her wedding day clashes with her court hearing and asks Ashley to postpone the ceremony until just after the hearing. Satisfied with their new arrangements, she and Jimmy press ahead with preparations for their respective hen and stag nights. The fancy dress hen night is in full swing at Mill Cottage - until the alcohol runs out. Eve offers to retrieve more from the pub but when she turns up at The Woolpack, she quickly becomes involved in a shot contest with the stags. While she's there, she tempts Carl with her flirtatious ways. Later, Chas is forced to drag a tipsy Nicola off Viv when they become embroiled in a catfight on the street. Meanwhile, David decides that he'll co-operate with Nathan but demands the memory card containing the video footage of him and Tania as well as half the money upfront. David's left ashamed to be playing Nathan at his own game. Elsewhere, Cain continues the feud with Declan when he takes a delivery for him; Adele's touched when Andy spends the night with her instead of joining the stags; Aaron tries to speak to Jackson but is quickly shot down; and Paddy refuses to forgive Rhona and Marlon for secretly bidding against him for the vet's surgery.
