Kieron tells her he wants the rest of her dad's money, and calls Gary from her phone with a threat - bring £50k if he wants Kelly back alive. Gary manages to scrape together nearly half of that, and heads off to meet the kidnapper. He hands over the cash but the men continue with their threats; but little do they know Gary placed a tracker in the bag of cash which leads him to Kelly. When Kieron arrives with a crowbar, a fight breaks out, leaving Kelly shocked over what Gary is capable of. What will Gary do? And will the pair escape?
