Robert is uneasy when Lawrence hints that he has his own plans to deal with Ross and soon the Bartons realise something is awry. The local abattoirs are rejecting their business, there is an unannounced inspection at the garage and a tax enquiry occurs. It's clear foul play is at hand. It's Pete who makes the connection that their family is being targeted due to Ross. As Ross tries to defend himself, Lawrence reveals that it is he who is behind the Bartons' troubles and warns they will continue until Ross admits the truth. Meanwhile, Vanessa grows frustrated with Belle's poor attitude at work and suggests Paddy has a word with her. Edna arrives and tells Pearl about her missing brooch and a paranoid Belle snaps, causing Vanessa to hastily intervene. Later, Paddy finds Belle crying and is thrown when she tells him what Vanessa has said to her. Elsewhere, an apprehensive Kirin tells Rakesh that he doesn't want to go to uni anymore. A disbelieving Rakesh thinks Vanessa is to blame. Also, Rishi suggests Jai thank Ali for her birthday gift, leaving Jai to swallow his private guilt. Finally, Eric grows frustrated as he accepts deliveries for the casino night, roping David in to help.
