Moira is convinced that John can't pull off the supermarket deadline, while John believes that he can talk Declan into allowing a late rent payment. Declan plays tough during his proposal and turns down John's idea. John then hits a nerve when he tells Declan that he's just jealous of the Bartons for having a close family - something he doesn't have. With the supermarket refusing to budge on the deadline, John has to drop a bombshell on Alex, Andy and the family - they will all be doing overtime for no money. John explains that he hopes to pay them if they pull off the deal but Moira despairs - the deal could fail and John will bring down his own family as well as Alex and Andy's. Meanwhile, Marlon is disappointed when Laurel tells him that she won't be able to help with the cookbook for the time being. When Laurel makes an effort with Ashley's breakfast, Sandy points out that Ashley is neglecting her. Sandy is later pleased to see that Ashley has understood the message and already planned a romantic dinner for him and Laurel. Elsewhere, Aaron's agitated by Sean hanging round; Charity wants to plan the wedding but Jai hasn't yet told his parents; Alicia and Andy struggle with their different desires; David heads off on his honeymoon alone; Declan tells Katie that he's going away and wants to make the most of his time with her; while Chas is pleased when she discovers that Aaron is going back to college.
