When he gets a text from his mate, Imran, he heads off to find Max. He asks Max if Imran can move in too. When Max’s brother Jack Branning overhears the two talking he is furious and insists that he’s not having killer Bobby staying in their house, let alone his mate!
Max feels guilt ridden when a crushed Bobby heads back to the Beales’. Kathy finds Bobby at home and is concerned by his uneasiness. Still having hallucinations of his murdered sister Lucy Beale, Bobby is wracked with anxiety, but he keeps the hallucinations to himself. When Kathy tries to help Bobby but instead gets his back up, she is at a loss over how to help and her troubled grandson storms out…

Bex’s best mate Louise Mitchell realises that she’s not herself and she comes up with a plan to help her feel better.

Matters aren’t helped when fellow mum Chantelle Atkins warns Linda that the other mums at the school can be hard work.
