As Sharon and Kat prepare to open Peggy’s next week, Sam is still trying to muscle in on the action.

Kat and Sharon set her up with a long list of chores to complete. But Sam manages it with ease and leaves Dotty in charge while she goes to glam up.

But Dotty is working for Shirley and she soon calls her to tell her the coast is clear, so Shirl arrives to trash the place.

After Sharon and Kat confront Shirley, two men enter waving a gun. A gunshot soon rings out…

Sam tries to be the saviour when she stands up to the men.

She refuses to back down to their demands and defiantly tells them to pass a message on to Jonah, who they are assuming is behind this.

But when it becomes clear their threats are serious, Sam realises she has to give in.

She takes them to the safe, but things spiral out of control.

But it’s the safe the thugs want and panicking Shirley is hiding right by it.

When the gunshot rings out, is she the one who takes the bullet?

Will Shirley die?
