Peter apologises to Lauren after kissing her. She tells him that he has nothing to say sorry for as he is going through so much. Lauren assures Peter that Ian loves him and that they need each other. Peter heads to the restaurant to see his dad, who tells him that Phil has advised him to re-open the restaurant. The men share a teary embrace when Ian admits that he feels he should have protected Lucy. He breaks down as he tells Peter he is never going to be able to hold Lucy in his arms again. Ian suggests that maybe they should let the restaurant go. Peter disagrees – closing the restaurant would break Lucy’s heart. They agree to open up and make it work together and toast ‘Beale’s’.
Ritchie comes round and informs Phil that Ben was paroled to a half-way house after he was released, somewhere in London. Abi is confused when she heads to the Mitchell’s and hears Phil, angry on the phone. Phil storms out telling Jay that he knows people who will tell him where Ben is. When Phil returns, he tells Jay that all he managed to find out was that Ben’s half-way house was in Hackney, but that he had already gone and he doesn’t know where. He is gutted that he knows Ben is out but can’t be bothered to ring him. Jay suggests that maybe he is just getting his head together – but Phil states that he has let Ben down, hence why Ben doesn’t want anything to do with him. Sharon returns from work and can tell that something is wrong. Jay fills her in about Ben being out of prison and not getting in touch – Phil snaps at Sharon that she doesn’t care and that it doesn’t matter – she disagrees. Jay leaves the room and makes a phone call to Ben telling him to come home - Phil doesn’t know that he has seen him.
Lola comes over to see Abi and Jay with a bottle of alcohol and breaks down as she tells them that she has really messed up by selling the story on Lucy. Jay tells Lola that Peter is mad if he thinks she’s a waste of space. Abi gets jealous when she sees Jay utterly take Lola’s side and possessively takes his hand.
