Jay's in a more destructive frame of mind than usual, ahead of the trial for his father's murder, and he's determined that he and Billy will see justice done. Billy, meanwhile, receives another cryptic birthday card from Nick to remind him about their deal, but the card only serves to remind Jay that it would have been Jase's birthday. Super. As he's a witness and unable to attend court until he takes the stand, Billy - naturally - begins drinking. 'Cause that's how people deal with problems in Soapland, kiddies. Phil decides to teach Nick a lesson after catching a pie-eyed Billy stealing money out of his wallet, while Dr Jenkins' friendly concern looks set to derail Nick's plans for Dot. Stacey fails to return home after a night out, and Bradley considers his future with Syd.
