She tracks Chloe down at the bus stop and decides to go with her as George and Esther watch their friend leave.
Fraser, Trevor, Freddie and Jim watch Grace’s video message to them on their laptops. They need £2m by the end of the day or she dies… In the deserted car park, Fraser and Trevor come face to face with Ray, but no Grace and no money.

Ray grabs the loot and drives off, as a van arrives and Grace is thrown out on to the floor – she’s safe. Later, Freddie is welcomed into the business by Fraser, and Grace vows not to let anyone stand in the way of her and Trevor’s relationship.
Meanwhile, Theresa gets her own back on Carmel by putting a drunk Jim to bed and cosying up beside him.
