But getting his own phone back takes a complicated turn for Bear when Sasha Leeson (Lucy Polgar), who picked-up his phone by accident, won't hand it over so easily.

It turns out Sasha's nasty boyfriend Hayden Cracknell (Jack Hartley) has seen an opportunity to make some money. They won't be handing his phone back until Bear pays up!
