Lisa is worried after receiving a phone call from Zak, who tells her that he is coming home. As Zak is reunited with his family, he is desperate to show Lisa and Sam that he is on the mend. He passes Lisa his medication, saying she should look after it. Later, the loan sharks stop Zak as he is out on a walk, threateningly telling him they have unfinished business. Zak is firm, insisting that Lisa paid the money, but they explain that they still want the full amount and give him a 48-hour deadline. A devastated Zak is left struggling to work out what to do about finding the money. Meanwhile, Ali sneaks a look at Ruby's phone, but panics when she is almost caught by Ruby and hides the phone. Once Ruby has left for work, her hidden phone begins to ring. Sean answers it and tells the caller that Ruby is out at work looking after Sandy. Later, Ali is shocked to discover that Ruby has been sacked for moonlighting. Ruby realises that Ali has been going through her text messages and storms out, leaving Ali guilty. Soon afterwards, Laurel apologises to Ruby, feeling responsible for her losing her job. She offers to let Ruby stay on her sofa, aware that she and Ali are rowing. Ruby agrees and it makes Ali even more jealous to witness Laurel and Ruby giggling together. Elsewhere, David tells Eric that Alicia married him because she loves him, while Laurel visits Ashley and he is thrilled at the proposition of seeing his children.
