Outside The Woolpack, Angie asks Charity where she could find Belle, identifying herself as Jermaine's wife. Andy escorts Lawrence into Home Farm where Lawrence admits his collapse was due to combining his heart medication and viagra. Angie informs Charity she has some bills Jermaine will need to pay half of, and explains her father warned her about marrying beneath herself. Angie hints that Jermaine has cheated before as he constantly worked late, had house calls as well as a boys holiday to Benidorm. Angie admits she could have sent the bills and paperwork but she wanted to see if Jermaine is happy as they had been through a lot together.

David explains to Jacob that he is now in a relationship with Tracy, and Jacob is happy for them. Charity calls Jermaine to set up her plan. Jimmy and Rodney fight over who is to take a lucrative run to Odessa. Rodney insists he could only take the delivery as far as the Ukrainian border as in his youth he slept with the wife of a Soviet Union government official, and was deported.

Victoria informs Adam that she has received an offer for the van, and has accepted it. Bernice is surprised to learn of Lawrence's collapse from Brenda. She asks Andy how Lawrence is, and Andy assures her he was fine when he left, but explains Lawrence mixed his medication with viagra, and suggests the viagra mightn't be for her. Sam leads Jermaine into the pub backroom. Andy tells Bernice that he saw Lawrence holding Ronnie's hand at his hospital bed. Charity strips naked to show Jermaine a mark on the bottom of her back. As he examines her, they talk. Charity turns around and reveals her full naked self to Jermaine, who realises it's a trap, and opens to door to find Sam recording the encounter. Jimmy assures Nicola he isn't going anywhere. Jermaine questions what is wrong with Charity as she is meant to be Belle's friend as well as her cousin. Charity explains she talked to Angie and the real question is how many women he has cheated with. Jermaine protests him innocence, but admits he sometimes did lie to Angie so he could go out for a drink with mates that she disapproved of. Jermaine insists if he and Belle end, it won't be because he cheated, or because he didn't try. Moira hands Victoria an envelope of cash, stating she's the one buying the van. Moira explains she'll keep the van safe until Victoria wants it back. Tracy returns from looking at places to rent in Hotten. David suggests she move into Farrers Barn, which she agrees to. The Dingles gather for an awkward family meal at Wishing Well. Bernice confronts Lawrence about him being in love with Ronnie. Lawrence protests that holding an old friends hand at his hospital bedside isn't a deceleration of love, and he suggests Andy is still in love with Bernice and is trying to split them up. Lawrence shows Bernice a reservation for the pair of them at a romantic retreat and tries to make Bernice see that he got the viagra to be with her and not Ronnie.

Charity insists Belle needs to tell Jermaine the truth, but Belle informs Charity she'll be pregnant in no time. Charity reminds Belle that Jermaine is a qualified doctor and will know the timings don't match, but also asks Belle if she wants to be someone who traps her man. Charity questions if Belle really wants a baby. She says someday and reminds Charity she was very young when she had Debbie. Charity heads back to the house to tell Jermaine the truth but Belle stops her. Charity admits Jermaine passed the seduction test. David and Tracy return from David's chemotherapy session.
