Panic sets in for Gary and Maria when they discover Kelly's bed hasn't been slept in. Aadi reveals that Kelly went off to meet one of Rick's old clients.

Meanwhile, being held against her own will in a dingy cellar, Kelly is handed a phone by Kieron and ordered to text Gary. In a clever move, the teen sends a message asking Gary to let her mum know she's fine, and straight away he realises something is very wrong.

Things take a chilling turn when Gary then receives a call from Kieron, demanding £50,000 if he wants to see his surrogate daughter alive again. With no time to lose, Gary gets to work.

Having managed to scrape together half of the ransom sum in cash, Gary meets up with Kieron and Ross on a side street. The thugs aren't happy and make it clear that Kelly will suffer until Gary finds the rest of their money.

However, they've underestimated who they're dealing with, as Gary forces his way into the cellar and tells Kelly he placed a tracking device on the money bag he gave her kidnappers.

Believing they've got the better of Rick's old cronies, the pair prepare to leave, only to find Kieron standing behind them, wielding a crowbar. A violent brawl ensues, and as the red mist descends over Gary, Kelly is shocked by his murderous intent.
