There are signs that arch-schemer Ted (Robson Green) is about to overplay his hand in his bizarre bid to win the heart, and everything else, of his beloved Bel (Polly Walker).
As Debbie Horsfield’s implausible drama reaches its penultimate episode, everyone, just about, turns on everyone else and secrets burst out all over the place. The useless Wes (James Murray) starts to regret his dalliance with Lorelei, who feels pretty much the same about Wes. So she makes a big life change.
Bel, meanwhile, behaves unwisely under the gimlet gaze of her awful mother Ivy-Rae, who should be packed back up on to the roof to practice her dancing. And the dumb Leanne has to wise up, at last.
Leanne is keen to launch her own beauty product range and is furious to discover Bel had the same idea years ago, but Shameen helps her identify a gap in the beauty market. Dante confesses a guilty secret to Tyler, who is so shocked that he finishes with him, while a fire breaks out in the salon, forcing Leanne to come up with a way to ensure that MirrorBel Beauty can continue to treat their clients - while trying to get to the bottom of who deliberately started it.
