Agnes is determined to make sure she doesn't fall victim to the recent crime wave. Not only has she fitted a reinforced steel bolt to her back door, but she's asked Buster Brady to install a state-of-the-art alarm system. If only Buster didn't get all his gear off the back of a van...

Dermot's hopes are dashed when the bank refuse him a loan to set up his own promotions business - but Agnes is determined to rescue her son's dreams. The only way she can think of to get her hands on the 10,000 euros he needs is to win the local poker tournament. But will she ever be able to beat her arch nemesis and reigning Poker champion, Hilliary Nicholson?

Cathy is feeling broody and decides to pursue unconventional means to get pregnant. Agnes is left reeling at Cathy's announcement, but a lovelorn Buster spots an opportunity.
