Fiona Kelly returns from London to re-open RAW and seeks out to recruit old head chef Geoff who then entices his old team back for another go at RAW. Fiona has her problems though with lease holder James and an unwelcome visitor named Kate. Meanwhile, Shane's divorce comes through and he ends up in a fight with his old school friend Jay who promptly arrests him on the opening night of RAW. Fiona also recruits former banker Dylan as her new waiter.
JoJo and Shane's mother Maeve comes to stay with them and causes friction. Fiona promotes Pavel to Front of House Manager but his initial managing of his new job is fraught with difficulties. JoJo and Dylan become closer. Geoff finds out that the Kate who keeps calling Fiona is her sister. Shane is bribed by Jay over his arrest record.
Fiona's past finally catches up with her just as the restaurant is hit with a customer with a peanut allergy falling ill. Elsewhere, Jo-Jo is in store for a surprise from Dylan. Meanwhile, Maeve gets the all clear, Jay continues to blackmail Shane and Pavel realises that his relationship with Geoff will never go anywhere.
Bobby and Dylan's dreams are finally realised with their leasing of an old bar. But for Geoff, who is celebrating his 30th birthday, things go from bad to worse - and it's mostly to do with Pavel and a bad review in a magazine. Elsewhere, Fiona tells Paul she cannot trust him and that their marriage is over. Jojo finds out about Jay black-mailing Shane and delivers her own justice as Dylan tells her he loves her.
Bobby makes a grim discovery on the day of his and Dylan's grand opening of their new bar - the previous owner Michael has died at the bar. Geoff faces his demons and makes the call to his parents telling them he's gay. And a disgruntled Jay threatens Shane after he's suspended from his job.
