Chrissie's negligence case is up for review and she is finding it very hard to cope. Also seeing Sacha with a new woman gets her thinking that perhaps they could be more than friends. But at the tribunal Jac manipulates events her way to make it look that Chrissie is at fault and Chrissie only has one person to blame after that - Sacha - who gave her the information. Meanwhile, Penny continues to shine under Michael so much so that when he asks her to debrief in the bar the rest of the staff tell her it's a date. Elsewhere, Joseph suggests to Faye that she spends Christmas with him and his mother in London which upsets Jac; Kieran and Donna agree to spend Christmas together and Connie's dad protests about going into a nursing home.
