Jai returns to work and makes an uneasy truce with Nikhil, but soon finds himself clashing with Dan, who takes a stand and walks out. Nikhil is fuming and as he points out all the mistakes that Jai has made, Jai storms out furious. In the café, Rachel is concerned as she sees things aren't good between Jai and Charity. She tells Jai that they're hopefully going to let Archie come home soon and she will stay in the house, but she wants his key so he can't let himself in. Later, a repentant Jai arrives back at the factory, but he's stunned when Rishi and Nikhil force him out, claiming that he's unfit to be a director. Jai reluctantly hands over his keys and is distraught when Nikhil tells him that he's had to give up his time with Molly because of him and he'll never forgive him for that - he wants him to stay away from his family. Outside, a devastated Jai gives in to tears of grief and rejection. Meanwhile, Bernice arrives back without Diane. At the pub, Chas is already feeling lonely and isolated when Bernice makes things worse by commenting that the takings are down and Chas must be driving customers away. Chas then hits a new low when Bernice lies that Diane is not happy with the way she's running the business and she wants her to take a look at the books. Chas is fuming, but Bernice insists that she's only looking after her mum's interests and suggests she should sell up her share of the pub. When Chas offers Dan a drink on the house, Bernice pipes up and Chas lays into her. Steve leads a humiliated Bernice into the back room and tells her that she only has herself to blame for the way Chas has reacted. However, Bernice is still determined to get her hands on the pub. Also, Chas receives a prank call.
