That's all it took.
Why would I do that?
What could possibly be in it for me?
I don't know, out of spite, or jealousy?
Jealous? Of him?
Marrying that disgrace of a woman?
My dad didn't start the fire, he tried to save Zainab.
That was later. He panicked,
he went back but Masood was there.
You don't know anything. Get out!
With pleasure, but hear this...
I know exactly what happened,
because I was there with him.
No, I'm fine, leave it, leave it...
I can't wait to get stuck in, meet with suppliers.
Pakistan, here I come!
There's so much to do. I'm not having any old servant cook and clean for us.
-Or look after Yasmin. I so need a break from all that.
-She's probably still out there looking for you.
-Looking for me?
-Yes, she went to hurry you up.
-At least that's the last of the chemo.
Look, Derek's out, I've sorted the girls out,
-why don't you go back upstairs?
-No, I've got work to do..
-Well, I'll do it, just tell me what it is...
-You can't, it's for the salon.
-What, now? You've got to crack on with that now?
-Yes, it's paperwork.
-Well, so what?
-We need the money,
the place is barely ticking over and the car lot's not doing so great without Darren.
-Just forget the money, will you? It's not important.
-It's you what's important.
-You're not listening to me...
You all right?
-I didn't know you were coming.
To my dad's birthday.
No, I'm not. Don't worry.
No, I'm off on a night out, if I ever get there.
First I lost my earring, then I couldn't find my phone...
I hope that somebody gets your dad something nice...
like a little bit of decency.
-I'm sorry, that was a bit harsh.
-Yeah, and bitter.
-As if you're the expert judge.
I think I know my dad a little bit better than you do.
He is the most decent man I know,
he'd never hurt anyone, there isn't a bad bone in his body!
Look, I said I'm sorry...
so let's just leave it at that, all right?
-What, you working late?
He's been a very busy boy.
-Makes a change.
-No, we have actually been talking about business.
I've been thinking of opening a ladies gym.
-Yeah, you know, light, airy, fragrant.
Nice. Good for you... You ain't having it in here.
If you even think about selling your half to her...
-Come on, would I do...
-Just lock up, will ya?
MOBILE RINGS IN POCKET
-Still no answer?
-She hasn't taken her phone.
There you are, we were starting to worry.
We must've missed each other.
Then I got caught up with, er, with a tricky customer.
It's fine, it's all sorted now.
Come and grab some food.
you haven't noticed a change in your mother recently, have you?
No. What sort of change?
Clingy, irrational, the slightest worry
-and she over-reacts, goes to pieces...
-Well, that's Mum.
She was in tears last night over nothing.
She's been on edge for months, I'm just worried that...
Well, the first time she tried to take her own life,
it wasn't a cry for help. It was real.
-And I've no reason to think it won't be the same next time.
She loved our trip to Pakistan,
so hopefully it won't take her too long to settle in.
Don't worry, we'll do our best to keep an eye on her.
ALL: Six, five, four,
three, two, one!
-it's a bit of a beauty, it's lovely!
Right, girls, can I finally tempt you
in a rum and mistletoe special?
I like the sound of that.
Stay where you are, princess. Den? Jane?
-Yeah, yeah, go on, count me in.
-No. Mine's half a lager.
-So you coming tonight then?
-Tonight? Girls' night out?
Alfie, you didn't tell her?
Kat, I completely forgot. Sorry.
-Well, it's not too late, is it.
-Course not, I can manage here. It'll be fine.
-No, it's fine...
-No, Kat... It'll be great, darling. Kat?
-Hey, I've got my magic pulling shoes on, I have.
-Yeah. Christmas is coming early for this girl.
I didn't mean... I meant that, it works for me cos I'm single...
Anyway. There you go, girls, get your kissing gear round that, eh?
Listen, Kat, it just slipped my mind.
-It's all right. I don't wanna go, anyway.
-No, I can manage here. It'll be all right.
Look, why don't we get the mini Moons to close up for us, yeah? That way we can both do something.
Yeah I'd love to, I really would,
but there's so much... I'm up to my eyeballs in this Christmas stuff,
I mean it's all gone a bit bonkers busy. But when things
-calm down, I promise, yeah?
-Yeah. Sorry, what was I thinking.
Sorry girls. It's bonkers busy.
Another time, yeah?
There you go.
-Yes, thank you.
-Can I get you anything else?
-No, honestly, darling, I am fine.
Babe, it's no trouble.
If you want to do something for me...
-You really want to do something for me?
Can you go out for a bit.
You're not going to come back and find me dead on the floor.
No, it's fine. It's fine.
I just want you to go out and have a bit of fun, darling.
And a packet of crisps, thanks. Salt and vinegar.
I had you down for beef.
I should've put one up earlier, but I didn't want to use
-one of the ones I was selling, I wanted the real thing.
-Excuse me, I've got to get some crisps.
Yes, all right.
Yes, all right! Calm down everyone, don't panic.
She is such a wallflower.
Venus fly trap more like.
-There you go, darling.
-I bet you've scored a few then.
Sorry, I meant darts.
Well, let's see if you can manage three in a bed.
-Well done, Alfie.
-See, you happy now?
It's all right Jane, I'll get this.
No, you're all right, we're off out in a minute.
It's a shame Tanya couldn't make it.
She's just wiped out, ain't she.
Bound to be though, ain't she?
Sorry? What's up, what's wrong?
No, nothing, just forget about it, all right?
-I'm just being stupid, that's all.
Will you keep this to yourself?
-You fixed the Christmas tree then?
-Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's all sorted.
Glad to see you're interested in something.
SHE WOOLF WHISTLES
I've been thinking.
You know what we were talking about earlier...
the ladies' gym?
I've printed off some possible venues.
-Only if you're interested.
-I'm interested. I'm interested.
Fifty, fifty, but I get to choose the name.
Yeah. But you, Mr Moon,
are gonna have to put your money where your mouth is.
I will. I will. But you really shouldn't carry that much cash.
Let me just put that in the safe for you.
Oh, yeah, nice try. Nice try.
Look, you can even write your name on it.
-So sweet, the way that you care.
-Get it in there.
I don't trust banks, never have done, and I don't want it getting mixed up with my cash
-and there's a lot more in there than that.
-So it's a deal?
As long as you don't call it Fat Pat's.
Come on, Max, you're starting to worry me now.
It's Tanya, she's got cancer. Cervical cancer.
Right Jane, come on. We're off.
-Sorry, Denise, something's come up.
-Go on, Jane, don't be silly...
-No, it was only a stupid night out.
Oh, right, well, right wash out this is turning out to be, innit.
Wait! Wait for me!
Ah, a bit of fun!
Yeah. Come on!
-You gonna be cold?
I'm so going to miss you.
You know, I understand your reasons for staying
and you have to lead your own life,
but... I'm going to miss not having you near me.
Well, I was thinking...
That maybe, if it's just for until you're settled.
Afia and I, could come out there just until then.
-Nothing. Mum's happy.
-I'm so, so, so happy.
-Both my sons coming out to Pakistan to visit me. I'm so happy...
I just told Mum we're coming out to Pakistan, just for a few weeks.
-That is wonderful news.
DANCE MUSIC BLARES
My pulling shoes are pulling me into this direction.
Hey, stand back, let the moths see the flame.
If she weren't my sister...
Here, your Alfie, he's a star.
-A busy night and he still lets you off.
-Yeah. He's a keeper all right.
Things are still a bit fragile.
So, no tears.
(She had the last of her chemo today.)
(And then she's got radiotherapy and
(then she's got some breakout thing.)
I had no idea.
I only found out when I got back.
I never would have left...
The main thing is you're here now.
But sometimes, Jane, it's like she don't want me to help.
Seriously, I don't know what to do.
TANYA: Is that you, darling?
You back early?
Jane, this is...
well, what a surprise.
-I was... sorry...
-Babe. I'm sorry, but I told her.
It's not his fault, I made him tell me.
Oh, Tanya... there was me, wittering on about Masood...
Oh, stop it, Jane. Stop it.
I'll be fine. I'm fine.
-Alfie's on good form, ain't he? He loves Christmas.
-He sure does!
-You all set for it?
Well, if you're gonna party, eh?
I feel bone tired,
weak and sick... And, um...
I mean I can cope with all that,
just every now and then
I, um... I suddenly just panic.
I mean, I get so scared.
And I can't face anyone, or anything
I'm just terrified that someone's gonna see me like that, especially Max.
Because he's been just so desperate to help, and he cares...
He really does care.
And I don't want him to think he's failed, you know?
-Talk to him.
And seriously, if there's anything -
anything at all that you want me to do...
Yeah, thank you.
Right, well enough about you...
I've missed you.
I'm here for you, Tan.
I'm here for you.
-We're going home.
-Oh, come on...
Oi listen, they're going to a Karaoke bar, they want us to go with 'em.
-Not in the mood for karaoke, sorry.
I'm so pleased about Tamwar...
The only thing left now is telling your father about taking...
He's going to be devastated.
-What's the matter?
I thought you'd be pleased,
you've been trying to persuade me for a week.
What's made you change your mind?
Just worried about Mum...
But I thought you'd be happy?
Tam, I was... when I was out...
Mind if I borrow my daughter?
Afia, is there some problem?
Surely this is the best news?
What is Uncle Tariq doing here?
I saw him at the Argee Bhajee...
-You saw him?
-Afia, thank you so much.
-I don't know how you managed to change Tamwar's mind,
but I'm so glad you did.
You don't know how much this means to me.
You were saying?
Happy birthday, Dad.
-No Kat tonight?
-Na, she's out with Kim and Denise having a bit of a girly night out.
I just saw Denise. She looked like she was going home.
Probably with Kim then, ain't she.
-Tell me about it.
Now why don't you let me get you another?
Oh, yeah, what's that, a bribe?
You think you can buy me like Michael?
Ooh, now I don't think my new business partner would like to hear you talk about him like that.
Yep, I told you you can stick your sweaty, grotty, little flea pit...
cos we are gonna open a new Ladies' fitness club
in beautiful, and way more, you know, fragrant surroundings.
What, and you're doing all this with Michael, yeah?
Mmm, he's matched my stake and we're just looking for premises...
He's matched your stake? With what?
Yeah well he ain't got a penny.
Oh, he has. In the safe.
The only thing he's got in that safe, is dreams.
-See you later, Alf.
It's been a lovely party.
Still not convinced?
With Tamwar coming now and you setting up business there,
she couldn't be more happy.
The best present I could have from you is let bygones be bygones?
-Syed, I think I left Yasmin's bottle in the kitchen.
-Sorry everyone, I've been called out, I'm afraid...
-Oh, no. Will you be long?
I don't know. But don't wait up.
Seeing as it is my birthday,
you can all finish the washing up in the morning!
Sorry about Kim, she's not always like that.
Yeah? Well, maybe.
She might calm down once she's got here.
-You think so?
-Where's your bathroom?
-It's just through there.
-Do you want a drink?
Yeah, go on.
Wait, wait, hold on, calm down!
Well, maybe he's just, I don't know, taken it out?
He ain't got a bean, has he? Who do you think's subbing him.
They stopped off at an offie,
-Kim got out and your mates took off in the cab.
-Do you blame them? Look, they've gone home.
-Well, as soon as she gets here, I'm off.
What, she's still coming?
-Don't worry, I'll wait outside, you carry on.
Look come on, stay for one drink? Besides, it's a lot warmer in here.
And I don't bite...
Yeah, go on, I'll have one while I wait.
Kat? Kat, is that you, darling?
What am I to do, eh?
You said it.
Kim? Where are you?
Phone me now.
So your old man's cool with all this, is he?
-Well, you know, you being out on your own?
-I wasn't on my own.
You know what I mean, I mean without him.
Oh, right, cos I'm married,
I haven't got the right to go out and enjoy myself? Is that it?
-I can't go out on my own, I can't talk to strangers,
I have to be at home upstairs, minding the baby, is that it?
-Well, he's more than that.
He's nearly one now.
Look sorry, I didn't.. Course you should go out.
The truth is, I want to be at home.
But my so-called other half would rather spend
more time with his Christmas trees than he would with me.
Says I can do what I like, as long as I don't tell him.
So he lets you do whatever you like, as long as you don't tell him?
But I don't want to,
I don't want him thinking I might be doing something that I can't tell him.
How does he think that makes me feel -
like I'm not worth bothering about?
That I'm bound to jump into bed with someone else sooner or later,
so what's the point of worrying?
But I want him to mind,
I want him to...
I want him to scream and shout at me and...
I want him to say that if I ever,
ever so much as even look at another bloke again, he'll kill me!
Babe, are you OK?
Yeah, yeah I was just getting some water.
-Oh, OK. Sorry.
..For telling Jane.
She's going to help out at the salon, do the books and stuff.
And that is because
I don't know what I'd do without you.
What's the time?
No, why didn't you wake me?
The middle of the night?
A hint of desperation there, Yusef.
-Afia saw you...
-I know, we had a nice little chat.
-Good job we did.
What did you say, what did you tell her?
-If you told her anything, the whole deal's off.
-Deal, what deal?
How can you offer me this place when it isn't even yours to give?
Tomorrow, when your father finds out about your wedding...
No. Hold on. Listen.
Tamwar and Afia are coming with us to Pakistan.
She doesn't know it, but I am buying them out so that they can come.
So if you've told her or anyone anything that stops me from marrying Zainab!
Calm down, OK?
I was saving that revelation for the morning.
I haven't said a word.
-You'd better not.
you'll try to kill me too?
If you want me to keep my silence,
-the sooner this place is transferred into my name, the better.
-Alfie, you awake?
Listen to this, right, Kim went crazy tonight...
she bit some blokes neck! I'm not talking like a love bite,
she took a proper chunk out of his neck...
-Kat, are you coming to bed or what?
As soon as you've had a shower...
-Alfie, I didn't do anything...
-Kat, I'm tired.
You started the fire.
You tried to kill her.
I spoke to Uncle Tariq.
He's a bitter, twisted man, Afia, don't listen to him.
But he was there...
he was there when you struck the match!
It's true, isn't it?
I believe him.
-And I'm going to tell Zainab.
-Please let me explain.
-You think I'm the same person I was then...
You tried to kill her and have lied about it ever since!
I was little more than a boy. a split second of childish anger,
of idiocy, and I've lived with it all my life!
-Dad, you have to...
-You want me to destroy everything we have?
I want to go back to Pakistan, to live the life I should've.
This is my second chance. So few people get that.
You've seen how happy Zainab is.
So am I. Please.
You have to tell her, Dad,
or I will.
Tell me what?

Afia is horrified as Tariq tells her what really happened the night of the fire. When Denise makes a comment to Afia about Yusef, Afia defends her father, but it’s clear she is unsure what to believe. Yusef uses Zainab’s ‘suicide’ attempt to guilt trip Tamwar into worrying about her. When Zainab becomes upset over leaving Tamwar, he eventually agrees to go to Karachi. Yusef smiles when he hears Zainab discuss how devastated Masood will be but it soon fades when he realises that Afia bumped into Tariq. Tariq informs Yusef that the sooner he gets the restaurant the better. Back at the Masoods', Afia confronts Yusef, giving him the ultimatum; tell Zainab the truth, or she will. When Kat offers a night in with Alfie she is upset when he makes excuses, leading Kat to head for a night out with the girls. Kat knocks back the drinks and loses herself on the dance floor as she swerves Denise’s questions about her ‘happy’ marriage. Ending up alone in a stranger's flat, Kat stays for a drink whilst she waits for Kim. Kat explains she is allowed to do what she wants as long as she doesn’t tell Alfie, but this isn’t what she wants. After falling asleep, Kat rushes home but is hurt when Alfie tells her to have a shower before she gets into bed. Tanya becomes frustrated with Max, telling him she needs space. Max tells Jane about Tanya’s cancer, Jane cancelling her night out to go and see her. Tanya wells up as she talks to Jane about her fears regarding her illness, glad to have her best friend’s support. Janine and Michael tell Jack about plans to open up a ladies gym but Janine is shocked when Jack tells her that Michael’s broke.
