Plot

Part One: Imran stands by his story, claiming that Adam has got his wires crossed. Toyah doubts him and suspects he's meeting Sabeen. At that moment, Sabeen arrives to meet Imran but walks past when she sees Toyah. Aadi encourages Asha to get out and meet someone new. Kevin and Tim accost County's manager Robert Dover outside the ground and tell him that one of his players is a murderer. The man is quick to remind them that Corey was acquitted in a court of law. Imran confesses to Toyah that he got very drunk and spent the night of the verdict on Sabeen's sofa, but insists that nothing happened. Aggie tells Sally she's stepping down from the campaign. Sally pesters Fergus to join her crusade, pointing out the potential for issuing penalty notices once residents' parking gets enforced. Audrey refuses to be bullied into having an eye test and gets Max to reclaim her car keys by telling him that she knows he once stole sweets from The Kabin. He succeeds, but Gail follows him back to Victoria Gardens and chides Audrey for using her great-grandson to do her dirty work. Toyah meets Sabeen at the bistro to check that her version of events tallies with Imran.


Part Two: When Sabeen repeats the same story, Toyah is satisfied that Imran didn't cheat on her. Afterwards, Sabeen suggests that Imran reconsider her request to work on Harvey's appeal, noting that she corroborated his lie that he spent the entire night at hers. She suspects that he ended up in somebody else's bed after leaving her house. Having learned of Kevin's attempts to wreck Corey's reputation at County, Stefan Brent calls at the garage to warn him off. Seeing the strain his pal's under, Tim urges Kevin to forget about justice for Abi and focus on his life with Jack. Sally records Councillor Cameron as he's returning to his car in an attempt to name and shame him. The councillor laughs it off. Nina clumsily reminds Asha she sees her purely as a mate. Asha's quick to assert that she's totally happy with how things turned out. Tim tells Nina that Kevin's a broken man and urges them both to back down for the sake of their sanity. Nina isn't ready to give up. Imran feels dreadful when Toyah apologises for speaking to Sabeen behind his back. As Toyah advocates total openness in the future, Imran swallows his guilty secret.
