Dev overhears Mary taking a call about collecting keys for her new property but she coldly refuses his offer of help in moving in. Hope can’t be found and Fiz rings the police.

Nevertheless, he leaves the cash behind. Seb overhears someone talking Polish within a camper van parked on Victoria Street. Tim and Sally confront Geoff about his supposed cancer.
