Maria has a moment of madness. Planning his surprise proposal Gary tells Maria he has booked her in for a manicure. But as the day goes on her suspicions about Gary grow as first Ryan is shifty about a parcel he has for Gary (the engagement ring) and then she spots Gary having a heated exchange with Ike which results in Gary handing over money. Ali finds an upset Maria in the barbers and she vices her suspicions about Gary. Ali admits he never stopped loving her and they kiss passionately.
Abi plots Ray's downfall. Tim, Sally and Abi discuss the online article exposing Ray as a sex pest. In The Kabin, Abi has a dig at Ray about the online allegations. Ray plays it down and hopes that Abi is still going to attend the charity ball with him later.
Meanwhile, Edison has a blast from the past. As Edison sets about measuring up Viaduct Bistro for refurbishment, he is thrilled to discover his old mate Danny is working there as temporary manager. Danny reveals to Edison that since they last met, he’s come out. Edison is taken aback. James goes into Viaduct Bistro and Edison introduces him to Danny. The lads share an awkward hand shake.
Elsewhere, Daniel's guilt gets the better of him. Beth tears a strip of Daniel and Bethany for jumping into bed when Sinead has only been dead for less than four months.
