Moira tells Charity to keep away from Cain, as she knows she threw herself at him. The ladies spar in the garage, but both are oblivious of Dan, who is in agony having trapped his hand in a car engine. Later, Cain tells Charity that her car has been stolen. Cain arrives home at the farm to a frosty reception from Moira, who wonders where he has been. He tells Moira that he feels second best to John, and to give them some space, as he is off to Italy to do a job. Meanwhile, Megan and Declan prepare for a Vegas night to woo investors. Nicola knocks back the cocktails before standing in as the roulette dealer. Declan is furious to see Katie arrive. Nicola gets so drunk that she falls about making a mess of the game. Declan takes the biggest gamble of his life, betting his entire property portfolio in exchange for Gil's investment in the hotel. As the roulette wheel turns, everyone waits in horror. Suddenly, an aghast Megan rushes in - she can't believe Declan is so reckless as to gamble everything. Megan steps in to halt the bet, believing she is doing the right thing, but is she? Later, once the guests have gone, Katie and Robbie are shocked as a furious Declan unleashes his anger on his sister. Elsewhere, when Ali wants to write to the Bishop to complain about Harriet's methods, Harriet accuses Ashley of underhand tactics. Harriet explains to Ali what ramifications her letter could have on her family and yet again Ashley feels outmanoeuvred by her. Also, Dan comes off worse when Betty practices her self-defence moves, Val is touched to get a card from Amy but is disheartened there's no return address, while Adam thinks he is in with Katie until Victoria ruins it for him.
