As Ryan stands there terrified, Sam dives under a table and calls Nick. But as his dad answers, a gunshot is heard. Nick, Leanne and Damon then race over and overpower the assailants. But the two guys escape, and Nick is left looking on anxiously as a police handler arrives with a sniffer dog.
Thankfully, the search doesn’t yield results, while the following day, two men suspected of being the gunmen are arrested. Nick then issues Damon with an ultimatum: either he picks up the drugs or they’ll get flushed down the toilet. But just as Damon is placing his holdall of Class As in the boot of his car, in swoop the police to arrest him too. And as Nick watches on from the balcony of the flat, Damon looks up at him, an expression of fury on his face…
Is Sean in big danger?
A taxi driver ferrying Todd back to the Street recognises Laurence and issues a warning about him needing to watch his back.
Worried about what the guy meant, Todd tells Sean, who grabs Todd’s phone, finds the taxi app and shows Laurence a picture of Mitch the cabbie. Laurence then claims not to know him, but Eileen subsequently finds a picture online of Laurence and his wife with her arm around Mitch.
Sean, though, insists that they’re wrong about Laurence and, what’s more, he’s booked them a minibreak. But Todd is set to track down Mitch, who reveals how he and Laurence once had an affair… and that when Laurence’s wife fell down the mountain, he suspected him of pushing her.
After Sean learns of this, as well as the fact that the upcoming minibreak involves mountains, he’s left hiding his unease. Just how much danger is Sean walking into?

Because when Peter then gives Rufus a lift in his taxi, he discovers all about the deal. So will word now get back to Carla about what’s been going on under her nose?
