Scattered to the four corners of - well, Stevenage – best mates Lee and Dean are no more…until a funeral brings them back together for the first time since the tears and revelations of Great Yarmouth. Meanwhile, Mrs. Bryce-D’Souza has made a fresh start, and Dean has a surprising new addition to his life.
When Lee finds himself with nowhere to live, Dean invites him back to the flat - but it’s a very different place now with Dani there. Things go horribly wrong at Terry’s will reading, Nikki becomes an unlikely flag-bearer for feminism and a new face causes upset in the building firm.
The boys are nominated for an award at a prestigious trade show – thanks to new colleague Tomasz’s building prowess. At the event, both Lee and Dean are made offers they can’t refuse… but Dean’s opportunity doesn’t go quite to plan. Mrs. Bryce-D’Souza receives some shocking news, Lee sees something he wishes he hadn’t, and Little Dean has a night he’d like to forget.
When an old friend of the firm reappears, and another runs into trouble, the boys rally round. Lee is keen to impress with his new responsibilities in business and his personal life. Nikki makes a rash decision, Dean and Mrs. Bryce-D’Souza grow ever closer, and Shitty Mick channels his inner choirboy.
Lee is desperate to make Dean realise he’s changed, arranging a visit to a local public school. Whilst Dean tries to come to terms with his past and face up to the problems in his relationship with Dani, Nikki goes off the rails, and Mrs Bryce-D’Souza finds a solution to her growing unease with Lee’s involvement in her life.
The boys are in Spain and have never been happier. They’re working hard and enjoying life in the sun… until a grisly discovery sends them spiralling back to their old ways. Meanwhile, Nikki is having her own adventure, and Lee and Dean find their hero hiding in the Spanish hills. But when the sun goes in, and old wounds reappear, there are several unexpected arrivals.
