Has he gone back too soon?
Confiding in Carla, Ryan tells her that he knows it's time he returned to work, but dreads being in the public eye.
When Daisy tries to make conversation, a bitter Ryan makes out he’s already back at the bistro and she can forget about him. Calling at the bistro, Ryan nervously tells Leanne he’d like to return to work. Will she agree?
When a customer complains about Ryan’s facial scars, Leanne leaps to his defence, claiming he’s a hero. Having caught the end of her outburst, Ryan hurries out.
Having agreed that Ryan can work behind the scenes till he feels more confident, Leanne suggests he starts by sorting out a new wine contract. In order to obtain a good deal, Ryan flirts with the supplier Rose on the phone.
Later, Ryan is thrown when Rose reveals she’s checked out his socials and wonders if he’s still single. And soon Leanne thanks him for securing such a great deal, before revealing that Rose is going to call in.
