Scott takes direct action when he realises the extent of Carl's skulduggery. Marlon refuses help for his increasingly erratic behaviour. Zoe is horrified that Zak is on the prowl with a DIY DNA kit.

Scott loses his rag with Carl and punches him square in the face.

Having lost the refuse contract to the Kings, Zoe (Leah Bracknell) is left with a redundant fleet of rubbish trucks and is furious when her rivals smugly offer to buy them from her.

Later Zoe calms down and realises she has no further use for the vehicles and agrees to the sale, but demands an obscenely high price. She is shocked when the Kings agree and she strikes a deal.

Having placed his trust in Carl (Tom Lister) and been made to look like a fool, Scott (Ben Freeman) has not taken to Carl’s family connections well.

When Carl offers his apologies in the Woolpack, Scott loses his rag and punches Carl in the face. Jimmy (Nick Miles) is quick to jump in and pull Scott off his younger brother.

Meanwhile, the menu on offer at the Woolpack has taken a turn for the worse, and it has not gone unnoticed. Still in mourning for Tricia (Sheree Murphy), chef Marlon (Mark Charnock) has been moping around the kitchen and the food is becoming slowly inedible.

Elsewhere in the village, Steph (Lorraine Chase) still hasn’t managed to restore any law and order in the factory and refuses to reinstate Zak, which causes even more uproar.

Matthew and Zoe
When Matthew King, of King & Sons, turns up at Home Farm offering to buy the Tate Trash wagons, Zoe soon realises that this could be a chance to make some money. The Kings may have won the refuse contract but they have no trucks. What she doesn’t know is that Tom King has told Matthew to buy the trucks at any price to keep her sweet, as part of his master plan of getting his hands on Home Farm. When Scott finds out about the deal Zoe’s making he's not happy, and when he finds out that Matthew and Carl are brothers he punches Carl for his betrayal.
Steph and Lisa
It’s payday at the factory and there’s a nasty surprise in store for the workforce when they open their pay packets... there’s no bonus. As revenge for the things they said about her behind her back in The Woolpack Steph tells them that they drank their bonuses when they were in the pub. When Jarvis threatens her with ‘working to rule’ Steph tells them she has a full order book and she’s relaxed about who she employs to do the work. Jarvis is up for a fight but it looks like he’s on his own as the others want to keep hold of their jobs.
Marlon leaves
Marlon is still grieving for Tricia and needs sometime alone but he can’t get any peace at the Dingles and goes off for a long walk and only realises it’s time he was at work when Ashley catches up with him. Diane has a lot of explaining to do to the hungry customers who have a choice between iffy steak and kidney pudding or apple pie for lunch. It is clear to everyone that Marlon’s mind is not on his work and Diane thinks he should take some time off before she loses her food license.
