The McQueens are disturbed to see a talking doll planted in The Dog which contains blackmail demands!
The drama begins when Nana McQueen calls for help.
Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) and Theresa McQueen (Jorgie Porter) race to The Dog to find a macabre doll standing in pride of place on the bar.
As all the McQueen family gather round, the electronic doll starts reciting the seven deadly sins and explains that the family will have to pay up or otherwise each of their sins will be publicly revealed and they will find themselves facing jail!
The doll announces that the first sin is ‘Wrath’. Which of the McQueens is guilty of wrath? Who does the spooky doll belong to and who is watching over the family to try and scare them into handing over a vast sum of money?
Elsewhere, Verity Hutchinson (Eva O’Hara) is representing Diane (Alex Fletcher) in her divorce from husband Tony (Nick Pickard).

Meanwhile lawyer Sami Maalik (Rishi Nair) takes pity on Tony who is struggling and offers to help him out.

Plus Tom Cunningham (Ellis Hollins) and Yazz Maalik (Haiesha Mistry) have a heart to heart about their futures. It’s clear that they both want very different things from life and it’s not long before an upset Tom thinks that maybe they should break up! Uh oh….
