Alicia's frustrated to have more financial pressure put upon her when Leyla tentatively questions when she'll be paying her rent. Soon afterwards, Jacob's getting increasingly excited about his birthday and, worried about her money woes, Alicia watches on in panic. Later, Jacob's in bed when Leyla and David are startled to hear a noise from the shop. Panicking, David refuses to go and investigate alone and they both grab something to defend themselves with. In the shop, an unidentified person is loading cartons of cigs and bottles of booze into a hold-all, but they manage to escape before David and Leyla open the door. Realising no-one is there, the pair burst out laughing at their makeshift weapons, unaware that outside the shop the thief is making a call to sell on the goods. The street light glows to reveal it's Alicia. Meanwhile, Chas is disheartened after a morning of viewing pubs in the area has proved unsuccessful. Later, Diane tells Marlon that Chas has the drive and determination to make the pub survive and, although she can't afford to lower the asking price, she admits there may be a solution after all. Elsewhere, when Nicola confronts Kelly, the schemer insists she's only back in the village for Bob; Kelly wins Marlon over by lending a hand in decorating the nursery; and Jimmy's starting to believe Kelly's claims of their closeness.
