Will she take revenge?
Kevin clashes with Tony over the garage’s new sign and parking restrictions between the garage and the factory.

A fuming Kevin is forced to agree to move the sign.
Dev is miserable when he organises a business lunch only to have it cancelled and with time on his hands he decides to rearrange the shop. Molly is unimpressed and points out to Jack that Dev’s grand plan means him scribbling on a piece of paper and leaving her to do the donkey work!
