Joyce becomes suspicious when Blow and Go appears extremely busy, and how young its customers are looking - even an unusually fresh-faced Mateo. Joyce confronts Kenneth, who is forced to offer her free botox sessions to avoid his secret being reported to head office.

Still annoyed at his dad, Tiger hides the news that Auntie Terri is on her way to The Solana. Terri arrives just in time to catch Mateo having a botox-based argument, gets caught in the crossfire and is knocked out cold. When she comes round and sees what a looker Mateo is, Terri decides to pursue him for her own kind of compensation.

Lesley is holding a darts quiz, and is having trouble attracting interest - until The Oracle and his mum arrive back in town. The Oracle is as formidable a darts player as he is a pub-quizzer, but with Noreen as his teammate things do not go as planned.

Joyce arrives at Blow and Go just as supplies of botox run out, so Kenneth and Liam try out a new product on her.
