Part One: Phelan is thrown by Todd's statement and panics as Todd heads to the Rovers to inform Eileen of the scam. Phelan makes a quick call to Vinny. Acting quickly, Vinny tips his pint over Eileen's mobile phone to render it useless and then whisks her to his car, claiming Phelan's got a surprise lined up for her. The Underworld girls discuss Beth's past. Kirk's gutted to be told by Billy that his marriage is probably null and void. Todd finds that Eileen has gone and begins to worry. Roy reveals he's ordered a new double bed. Cathy's troubled to realise he doesn't want her in Hayley's old bed or her old room. Steph finds that Andy has given Luke wine on the house and orders him to put the money in the till. Audrey giggles at Freddie's chat over dinner at the bistro. As he kisses Audrey's hand, Freddie is unnerved to spot a woman throwing him a filthy look. Vinny delivers Eileen to a waiting Phelan at the Calcutta Street site. She's impressed by the sheer scale of it. Beth returns from the police station and rails at Kirk for grassing her up. Craig admits he reported her. Phelan gets Eileen to admit that she wouldn't trust Todd. She's excited by the mystery when, near the edge of the rooftop, Phelan announces he's got a further surprise planned for her right now.
Part Two: Phelan packs Eileen off in Vinny's car again. While Audrey powders her nose, Freddie's shaken when his old family friend Angelica Fitzgerald rails at him for dating again so soon after Sadie's death. Freddie makes a hurried departure to Audrey's puzzlement. Craig's adamant Beth deserves to pay for all her deceit. She seeks comfort from Kirk but he says she's ruined everything. Anna tries to cheer Cathy up but she feels she'll always be second best to Hayley. Phelan returns to No.11 alone where Todd demands to know where Eileen is. Assuring Todd that she's safe, Phelan offers to cut him in on the deal. Kirk turns up on Maria's doorstep with his bags. Maria hugs him as he dissolves into tears. Andy apologises to Steph for his behaviour, admitting to jealousy for not being asked to be temporary manager. She advises him to put aside this job and do something he really likes. Before Todd can react to Phelan's offer, the police arrive to investigate his allegation of fraud and Eileen's disappearance. Todd's tense as an unruffled Phelan is taken away.
