Ashley heads straight round to John and Moira's to fill them in on the situation with Holly. They convince him not to call the police and tensely wait for her to return. Holly and Roz panic when John and Moira uncover the wrap of cocaine, and Roz is furious when Holly blames it on her and tells them their daughter has a drug problem. Later, Holly can't meet her parents' eyes when they question her about Isaac's iPod. When Holly refuses to stop doing drugs, John sees red, empties her wrap down the sink, dunks her head in it and disowns her. Meanwhile, Scarlett is on a mission to start her own business and ropes Eve in to help her. She rents out Jimmy's old office at Pear Tree and takes Eve on as her PA. Elsewhere, Pearl and Paddy try to persuade Hazel to paint a portrait of a customer's dead cat for £200, but she refuses; Hannah is thrilled when Isaac reveals he likes her, but is embarrassed when Moira accidentally interrupts them kissing; and Nicola's furious with Jimmy for taking a driving job instead of helping her.
