Linda is livid when she discovers Mick has let his sisters Shirley and Tina move into the Vic, but he eventually persuades her to let them stay, delighted to have reunited his family. The Carters have a lot of catching up to do, but they also need to get the pub ready for opening time - which is easier said than done when they discover Kat and Alfie have sold off almost all of the stock. Meanwhile, Sharon bonds with Linda over their mutual dislike of Shirley, and Peter finds the money Cindy stole on their camping trip and realises it could help the situation between Ian and Phil - but his dad warns him to keep quiet.
