Zoe arrives at her new job at the Etheric Foundation. Ben gives Zoe the crystal of Nirab. Liz finally decides to go away with Michael Wall. Hayley and Roy decide to take evening classes in Spanish. Des finds Tony burying drugs in the back garden. The men row and Des flushes the powder down the sink. Tony is devastated, telling Des it was his only chance to find the money he owes. Ruth shows Zoe how to do the sales patter when selling crystals of Nirab to housewives. Des promises not to call the police, or even tell Natalie what Tony has got himself into, if he clears off and starts again somewhere he isn't known.
