Dead or alive, is James about to leave the village?
With no one left to turn to, and his debts piling up, James must think fast when he's given a tight deadline. He's to come up with cash quickly, or face finding his loved ones in danger.
As Ste tries to convince James one more time to seek help, he fails to get through to him and James suddenly realises that the only person who can help him is the undertaker.
In desperation, James later meets up with Norma, but it looks like he’s in over his head when he ends up in a coffin begging for his life. Can he prove his worth?
To prove himself to Norma, James is tasked with a dangerous delivery and Romeo steps in when he gets wind of his dad’s perilous situation. Will everything go to plan?
When Norma’s true intentions for James are revealed, she makes him a chilling offer that leaves him little choice but to leave the village.
Despite the lack of support from his family, Romeo still hopes to help James and agrees to enter a DJ competition with Prince hoping to utilise the large audience for a search. But when Prince and Romeo get some bad news about the competition, will they manage to turn it around?
