The taxi has arrived to collect Paddy and Rhona, and they're both sad yet excited about leaving for New Zealand. Laurel tries to reassure Marlon that the police are on their way, but he cannot wait any longer and catches Paddy and Rhona just as they are saying their goodbyes to Pearl. He warns them that they are going nowhere. Pearl takes Leo inside, as Laurel and Marlon try to stop Paddy and Rhona from leaving. The row escalates when Marlon ends up hitting Paddy. Paddy and Marlon's fight is broken up when the police arrive, but a police officer gets caught up in the spat and gets hit himself, resulting in Marlon and Paddy both being arrested. They're both put in the car, so Paddy urges Rhona to go to New Zealand without him. She is uncertain, but ultimately gets in the taxi with Leo and it pulls away. Paddy and Marlon are then taken into custody. Meanwhile, in the café, a panicked Chas tells Cameron that they have to find £30,000 for Carl, and they are both filled with dread. Back at the pub, Chas tells Dan that they should scale down the wedding plans and not spend too much money - without revealing the real reason. Later, Chas and Cameron hold their breath as Carl starts up a conversation with Debbie at the pub. Wanting to get away from the Carl situation, Chas suggests to Dan that they should get away in the camper van for a few days. He is pleased, but the lies are taking their toll on Chas. Elsewhere, Charity is frustrated when Jimmy turns down her generous offer.
