Sam and Paul become anxious when they both notice an unfamiliar car in the Square. Sam assumes it's something to do with Phil, whilst Paul panics and thinks that the police are looking for Andy. Paul becomes deliriously happy when the clock signals that Andy will have been arrested by now on the way to his deal, but when Andy walks into the Vic while he's celebrating, he knows there's no way out. Meanwhile, Marcus tells Sam that Phil is leaving the UK today. Sam vows to do whatever she can, even if she has to sell the Vic. Is the Mitchells' ownership of the Vic about to end? Elsewhere, as ZoÃ« happily prepares for Christmas, Sharon and Dennis plan their future together.
