Jacobs encounters Dean in the club car park, and informs him how thanks to Lucy he's had the revenge he was looking for, so Dean will be keeping his teeth. Dean is confused as to what this has to do with Lucy, so Michael takes great pleasure in revealing what they got up to last night, adding that unlike Dean he and Lucy were stone-cold sober when they did it!
Sean wanders backstage and asks Melinda if he can get involved with the modelling, to which she says she has just the outfit for him! Sean isn't sure when he sees it's the Dragon mascot costume, but with reassurance from Melinda and Catalina, plus a kiss from Emma Steadman, he soon changes his mind. Des interrupts Jacobs' lunch meeting in the boardroom to ask him whether he has slept with Lynette. Michael turns it into an insult backlash at Des, taunting him that he pushed Lynette closer to him when he made her take the job as his secretary, and how he doesn't need to take Lynette because she is already on her way to him thanks to Des prostituting his wife to save himself! Des turns around and wallops Michael across the long table and its spread.
Lynette is not impressed when she hears what Des has done, but Des tells her he knows she is lying about seeing Jacobs as he saw them at the house this morning. Lynette is stunned that Des followed her, and when he confesses he's always been scared some flash bloke will take her away she tells him all the years they have been married she has never wanted to be anywhere else. Melinda opens the Harchester United Spring Into Summer Collection, and tells Sean to dance around, have fun and not to worry as nobody knows it's him! This almost goes to plan until his Dragon's head comes off and the crowd plus the youth teamers including Vincent have seen him. The fashion show continues, with
Dean turns up at the radio station looking for Lucy and asks her if she's proud of herself over Jacobs. She says very - in fact she has been talking to The Sun all about Dean's antics and proudly says she made a few quid from it. She says she's even given them the photo of Dean falling into the road drunk on his eighteenth birthday. She tells him her thing with Jacobs was a one-off with no feelings between them, but it was just the start of making Dean pay which she is going to love continuing to do. Dean tries to say this wouldn't be as bad if it wasn't for the tape and the newspapers, and Lucy reminds him that he did this before they were even married. What about in ten years time when she's losing her looks and nineteen-year-olds are throwing themselves at him?
