Calvin is feeling the strain of trying to keep his wife happy as Carmel starts discussing holidays now that Calvin’s making more money at work. Realising that he’ll have to make more cash if he wants to give Carmel what she craves, Calvin goes to see Warren and asks for one more job. Sasha also drops in on Warren, hoping for more of the same from the other night, but he’s not in the mood and is cold towards her.

Sarah wakes up in Warren’s bed filled with regrets, as memories of the night before and regrets of the morning present wash across her. Archie catches up with Sarah later and assures her that even though she slept with Warren last night, he is still holding out for her. Theresa hits the town with Anita, enlisting her unwitting help for a spot of casual shoplifting. And Nancy and Ravi are getting on surprisingly well in spite of their respective infidelities.

Jacqui has taken Theresa under her wing, and together they are putting Theresa’s false pregnancy bump device for shoplifting into over drive. Loretta and Dom are excited because they are off to see a rare bird that has nested in Hollyoaks. But Dom is ill and Loretta can’t help but worry about him. Dom spots the bird first but lets out an almighty sneeze and, quick as a flash, the bird disappears. Dom feels terrible but all Loretta cares about is seeing Dom get better so she takes him home for some much needed TLC. Dom couldn’t be happier; Loretta just seems too good to be true.

The McQueens embark on a massive shoplifting spree, which proves to be a huge success. Carmel wonders if Theresa’s predisposition to thievery and bunking off school is because she is a McQueen.

It’s Valentine’s Day, and when Ash arrives boasting of a night of romance and luxury for Hannah, a jealous Justin advises a more personal touch. Justin can’t believe how literally Ash takes his advice, and is left trumped when Hannah gets her very own car! Michaela and Mercedes have a blazing row, leaving Zak and Malachy bemused.
