Aaron (Danny Miller) takes it upon himself to break into the delivery van and steal Bob’s (Tony Audenshaw) cash. Zak (Steve Halliwell) is furious and almost hits Aaron for ruining the plan. However they soon use the cash to buy furniture for Tug Ghyll. The delivery man blames Bob and Brenda (Lesley Dunlop) accusing her of distracting him while Bob made off with the money. A stand off develops when Bob denies any involvement. The supplier vows never to work with Bob again and he’s left in a much worse position that before. Gennie (Sian Reese-Williams) is torn to find out the Dingles are behind the theft and upset when her father warns her it goes against the Dingle code to grass on your own. Lisa is mortified to hear that Zak has participated in robbing a neighbour and warns him that his future conduct may affect Debbie’s chances with Sarah. Back at the shop Bob reveals that the banks are recalling all his debts. Is Bob finished?

Over at the Woolpack, Diane (Elizabeth Estensen) advises Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) to take the moral high ground and allow Debbie (Charley Webb) access to Sarah (Sophia Amber Moore) when she’s released. Andy agrees and tells Lisa (Jane Cox) he’ll allow Debbie two hours supervised access that evening. Debbie is released from prison and is grateful to the Dingles for all they have done with Tug Ghyll. She has a tearful reunion with Sarah and is thrilled to be home. Will Debbie and her family stay out of trouble as the fight for Sarah intensifies?

Meanwhile, Val (Charlie Hardwick) is all ears after hearing about Maisie’s (Alice Coulthard) interest in Andy. She explains to Val that she doesn’t give up easily and meets with Andy again during her shift. Andy apologises for acting weird with and tells Maisie he likes her. Pouncing on his words Maisie asks for a guided tour of the farm to which Andy agrees.

They arrive at Butlers and notice Nathan’s (Lyndon Ogbourne) car. Maisie playfully suggest they hide from her brother. After a tryst in the barn, Andy agrees to see Maisie again as long as she keeps it a secret. Will Maisie be able to hide her new “friend” from the other Wyldes?
