Both Kelly and Maria are in danger this week when they’re targeted by dodgy men.

Aadi is shocked when he sees a wad of cash falling out of Kelly’s bag and demands to know what’s going on. The teen explains the money belonged to Rick and she wants to return it to the people he ripped off over the years, but Aadi is concerned and urges her to seek Gary’s advice.

Later, Kelly offers to accompany Maria to a lunch meeting she’s nervous about attending on her own. But during the event, Maria is shaken when Jimmy issues her a warning, then a sleazy bloke approaches to tell her how much he enjoyed her online video.

Things take an even more sinister turn when Maria finds a tracking device hidden in her handbag. Terrified, she reports it to the police, but while Gary hopes this is the end of it, anxious Maria can’t shake the fear someone is watching her.

Meanwhile, after managing to locate one of her dad’s former clients, Ross, Kelly arranges to meet with him. Ignoring Gary’s warnings, she arrives at Ross’s house and hands him the envelope of dosh, explaining who she is.

As she leaves, Ross makes a call to someone about Kelly, and later Aadi is concerned when she fails to show for their date at Speed Daal. He’s right to be worried, as Kelly is now being held captive in a basement.

However, Liv and Vinny can’t shake the feeling Sandra isn’t being straight with them, and the couple are proved right when threatening Terry turns up, demanding his money.

With Terry refusing to go, Liv tries to defuse the situation by offering to repay Sandra’s debt, but Vinny is worried her plan to help will backfire. After taking his dosh, Terry leaves and Sandra is grateful when Liv offers to help find her a job.
