Victoria and Alex delight in telling Laurel that Ashley is working in a burger bar. Deciding to confront him, Laurel arrives at the restaurant just in time to see Gareth laying into Ashley for stealing burger buns before sacking him on the spot. Later in The Woolpack's kitchen, Laurel confides in Marlon about what she has seen. Marlon comforts her and tries to see the good in what Ashley has done by highlighting his consistency with helping the homeless. Soon afterwards, things get heated when Alex mocks Ashley over his job and goads him towards a fight. Laurel then appears and sides with Alex rather than Ashley. Ashley is saddened to see that Laurel has confided in Marlon. At the same time, Laurel cannot forgive Ashley for getting fired for helping the homeless when she thinks his family is just as much in need. Meanwhile, Lisa approaches the two men who have been asking about Zak. One of the men tells her to get Zak to call him so they can complete some business. However, Lisa is concerned as Zak hasn't mentioned any business. She explains that Zak is in hospital, so they tell her to give him their regards before leaving. Cain reluctantly goes after the pair, but fails to catch up with them. Soon afterwards, Cain refuses to visit Zak in hospital but feels guilty as Debbie pleads with him to change his mind. Elsewhere, Zak opens up to Trevor about what he did to Cain, while Alicia is delighted when Val agrees to drop the charges against her.
