Stumbling out of the Minute Mart with a bottle of booze, Masood’s mugged for the remaining stolen cash and pushed into the Vic alleyway, where he falls to the ground. Dexter follows Nancy to the barrel store and propositions her. He strips when an amused Nancy insists she needs to inspect the bodywork first. Nancy moves to kiss him then hears a noise outside. They find Masood and take him home after he refuses to go to A&E. Tamwar notes Masood’s bleeding. Nancy quietly tells Tamwar she’s known lots of heavy drinkers, she’s there if he ever needs a mate. Back in the Vic, Dexter suggests he and Nancy pick up where they left off. Nancy turns him down - maybe another time. Meanwhile, at the Masoods’, Tamwar makes Masood a coffee. Masood admits he was mugged. Tamwar cleans Masood’s wounds and talks about a time he fell off his bike. Masood apologises to Tamwar who in turn apologises for not coming to the pub to get him. Aleks arrives and informs Tamwar the market office has been burgled. Either Tamwar didn’t lock up or he took the money. Aleks is angry when Tamwar suggests he could have taken it. Angry, Aleks tells him he’ll need to make a police statement then they’ll discuss what Tamwar’s carelessness means for his job. Once Aleks’ gone, Masood mentions the lockbox and Tamwar realises that Masood stole the money. Tamwar rails at Masood. Masood shouts that Tamwar should respect him and Tamwar counters by listing the ways Masood has failed. Masood lashes out, punching Tamwar in the mouth. Tamwar’s left reeling and Masood’s horrified with himself.
