The murder investigation begins to make Ripley's life very difficult. The murder victim is identified as a young man who'd been out on his stag night. The investigation starts to threaten Ripley's business when Carlisle temporarily closes down the arcade for forensics. DI Carlisle calls Ripley's son, Danny, in for questioning; he's convinced that Danny knows more about the inquiry than he is letting on. Carlisle suspects he might be covering for his father. When a huge tax bill surfaces and puts pressure on Ripley's finances, his friends Terry, Jim and Adrian, who have invested in the arcade, start to get twitchy. Meanwhile, Natalie agrees to go on a date with Carlisle â€“ unaware that he is investigating the murder. And Shyanne's love life takes a turn for the better when she's reunited with Steve, who'd earlier been warned to stay away from her by Ripley.
