But how long before Cindy shows her true colours?
When items from the bar get delivered to The Vic George, Anna and Gina take a trip down memory lane and Cindy is touched when George invites her back once she’s ready. But she soon shows her true colours by tearing into Elaine outside The Vic in front of a horrified George and Anna who dismiss her once again.
With Anna avoiding her, Cindy regrets her actions and attempts to make peace by inviting Elaine to lunch. However, at Walford East, it's icy between the pair. Can they get on?
The following day, Cindy meets with the other bidder for the pawnshop and suggests splitting their offer to go into business together. But with Ian reluctant, Cindy asks him to trust her as the mystery buyer is an ex-resident of Walford. Who could it be?
Meanwhile, blaming George and the Mitchells for their treatment of Jay, Gina heads to the wrong hospital in search of Jay as Cindy seizes her opportunity and offers to drive her.
