Robert and Michelle call in the cops when the Bistro is tar­geted…

The Street’s res­i­dents will need to take out life in­sur­ance poli­cies for the next time they pop to the Bistro for their steak and chips. Just a few weeks af­ter Ch­es­ney was stabbed there, a Mo­la­tov cock­tail is hurled at the door.

Robert and Michelle are left hor­ri­fied by the at­tack. This is no ran­dom act of vi­o­lence they’ve been sub­jected to – the cou­ple are be­ing de­lib­er­ately tar­geted. The Bistro isn’t a happy ship in the wake of Ch­es­ney’s or­deal, and Robert’s in a foul mood at the start of the week when Gemma per­suades Ches to sue. Adam Bar­low is swiftly brought on board, and he gets off to a fly­ing start. Ear­lier, know­ing that Ch­es­ney is strapped for cash, Michelle gave him £200, but

Adam ar­gues that it’s a sign she and Robert ac­cept re­spon­si­bil­ity.

Robert by ask­ing the edi­tor of

The Weather­field Gazette to read an ar­ti­cle he has writ­ten about the at­tack. He bans the woman, called Cindy, from pub­lish­ing it, but in­evitably, the Bistro blood­bath makes head­line news.

Robert’s fu­ri­ous as cus­tomers can­cel their book­ings and, when Adam then de­mands £10k for his client, the chef has a row with ’Shell and storms off. And that’s when things go re­ally down­hill…

Alone in the restau­rant, Michelle is dis­turbed by a noise. In­ves­ti­gat­ing, she finds some­one has spray-painted ‘RIP’ on the wall.

‘Michelle is ter­ri­fied,’ says ac­tress Kym Marsh. ‘Robert re­turns, hav­ing been mugged in town, and then some­one throws a home­made fire­bomb at the Bistro.’

The pair call the po­lice and name Rich as the likely per­pe­tra­tor. He vowed re­venge, re­mem­ber, when Robert shopped him for drug deal­ing. But is Rich re­ally to blame?
