ALYA GETS A LEAD AT STU’S FAMILY REUNION A nervous Stu prepares to meet his granddaughter Eliza at Speed Daal but is delighted when the meeting goes well. But the mood changes when Lucy arrives and insists that Bridget and Eliza leave the restaurant immediately. A devastated Stu watches them go. Meanwhile at number 3 Dee-Dee tells Alya that there was no trace of Stu’s DNA on Charlie’s bag but it will be expensive to get the evidence re-tested. When Alya spots the women leaving the restaurant she runs after them and accuses a flustered Lucy of hiding vital information linked to Stu’s case. Believing Lucy knows more than she is letting on Alya is determined to find the cash for the DNA test. Stu tells Yasmeen and Alya that he no longer wants to pursue his case and simply wants to leave the past in the past.

In the bistro, James breaks the news to the family that he’s landed a great new job, but it means moving to London.
