Transfer day and a baggage handlers' strike at the airport cause panic at the Solana. The Dawsons hightail it to the airport with their anniversary party in jeopardy, but it looks increasing likely that they won't be getting back to the UK to celebrate. Every cloud has a silver lining, though; Billy meets his lifetime hero Holly Johnson and a reincarnated Ron Pickford gives Eddie a shock. As Monty contemplates taking a job from Sir Henry, will Sam finally be able to admit her feelings for Joey?
