Eileen issues Phelan with a list of errands to run before the party and orders him to be home before it starts. Phelan has more pressing matters on his mind and rushes off to the building site where the millpond is being drained. Kate and Imran are invited to Sally's dinner party by Sophie and Rosie. Neither of them wants to go but they're unable to get out of it. Phelan discovers that the workmen are ahead of schedule and the millpond will be dry by tomorrow morning. Kate appeals to Zeedan to let Rana go. No.4 goes up for sale. Gina blows Sally off to go to Eileen's party, promising she'll be teetotal. Phelan offers to monitor the pumping himself and sends the other workmen home. Liz, Gina and Dev are Eileen's first guests. Moira brings her chocolate fountain over. Phelan drags Andy and Vinny's corpses out of the lake as a storm hits. Kate goes over to break up with Sophie only to be press-ganged into being Sally's food tester. Zeedan tells Rana she's won; he won't stop her from being with Kate. Fiz and Hope have a go at Sinead for throwing herself at Daniel. Fiz thinks Chesney still has feelings for Sinead when he ducks at the sight of her. Steve, Tracy, Jenny and Johnny join Eileen's party. Phelan's lateness causes Eileen to worry. Rosie is embarrassed when Sally drops hints about Imran settling down. Sally proudly announces that Sophie is selling her window cleaning round. Kate can't bear the pretext any longer and takes Sophie outside where she finishes with her. She tries to let her down gently but Sophie is crushed. Lee Mayhew hides from sight in Rosamund Street. Phelan dumps the bodies in a hole and which he fills with concrete. Eileen is abated when he texts her saying he's leaving work now. Gina finds the party boring and breaks her no-alcohol rule. Phelan's phone vibrates off the scaffolding and falls into the hole. He climbs down after it but loses his footing and drops to the bottom, trapping him as the concrete begins to set...
