Episode Summary

Tuesday 20th January 2009
Darren asks Cindy to get him a job back at The Dog. She's wary at first because of her fling with Rhys but is impressed that Darren is so determined to get his old life back on track, so she agrees. Darren goes to visit Jack in prison and instantly gets things off to a bad start when he appears all dressed to the nines. Jack implores him to tone it down a bit but Darren can't see why he should, especially now he's a free man. Jack reveals to Darren that Darren's showiness and big mouth was the real reason Jack was getting beaten up and this new display of confused machismo will only make things worse for him. Meanwhile, Cindy pleads with Rhys to give Darren a job and in spite of their history, he eventually agrees. Darren comes back from prison and starts his first shift at The Dog, albeit under duress from Rhys. Rhys soon lets Darren know that he and Cindy had a fling whilst Darren was inside. Darren's furious but knows he must contain his rage if he's to hang onto his job. Determined to wind him up, Rhys locks Darren in the back room of the pub. Darren freaks out, realising that he needs to get out or he'll break his curfew. Fortunately, Cindy returns just in time to let him out as Darren launches himself at Rhys. Furious, Darren knocks Rhys down then sprints back to Steph's flat, a shadow of his former self, at the mercy of his curfew. Both Mercedes and Malachy are struggling to find work and Malachy, in particular, is beginning to suspect that the stigma associated with HIV is playing its part in keeping him unemployed. Things get worse for him when he finds out that his safe-haven, The Dog, has a new employee, Darren Osborne. Meanwhile, Mercedes goes for an interview at Evissa and is annoyed that Carmel is asking her lots of questions she already knows the answer to. When Carmel isn't looking, Mercedes pockets as many bottles of cosmetics as possible and then storms out, still jobless, but with a plan. Warren puts in an unexpected visit at Evissa, his first since Louise's death, so he puts his business head on and both Bel and Carmel are keen to impress. Warren is struggling to concentrate with Spencer under his feet so Sasha offers to take him into town for a bit. Warren returns looking for Spencer and beginning to wonder if he made a mistake letting him go off with Sasha. Whilst there, Carmel pushes him on the matter of the manageress job and to her surprise and delight he tells her that she is the new boss of Evissa. Spencer and Sasha come back to Evissa and Warren's both relieved and pleasantly surprised at the ease with which Spencer has taken to Sasha. Warren offers her some money to say thank you as she offers her services anytime. Clearly, Warren has a new admirer. Steph is trying to get ready to open her new dance school, but the tension between Darren and Frankie is proving to be distraction. Tom and Holly are enlisted as trainee guinea-pigs but it soon becomes clear that Tom is less than happy at being dressed up and forced to take dance classes all afternoon. As Tom attempts to bolt, Holly questions his loyalty to Steph but soon finds that her interest is waning too.moreless
