Whilst out shopping with her mother, Amber goes missing and it’s not long before a frantic Ravinder phones Dev to enlist his helping tracking down their troubled daughter. When news of Amber’s disappearing act spreads, Dev is taken to task by several street residents over his recent treatment of his teenage daughter. Meanwhile, Amber reappears at the café and despite Roy’s concerns, a friendly Hayley offers Amber a solution to her woes: she could move into Roy and Hayley’s spare room. Will the confused teen take up the offer or with the residents stinging criticisms still ringing in his ears, will Dev finally reach a decision that will see him reconciled with his daughter? Elsewhere, love is very definitely not in the air over at Streetcars. Lloyd is down in the dumps as he informs a concerned Steve that Kelly has walked out on him. Steve turns relationship councillor and advises his depressed driver to attempt to talk to the leggy machinist. However, it’s not all domestic bliss for Steve as he is rattled when his girlfriend Ronnie reneges on a night out at the cinema and offers out his babysitting services to a relieved Tracy. Meanwhile, Charlie has plans and asks Tracy to organise a babysitter for Amy that evening. He informs his thrilled girlfriend that they are going to let their hair down and go out for the night. Deirdre disappoints her daughter when she declines to look after Amy whilst Tracy parties yet again. When Steve is later railroaded into babysitting duties, Tracy attempts to track down Charlie so they can head off but has the delay led the devious builder to reconsider his party plans? Did he intend to go out with the lads from the outset?
