He has a run-in with Connor, who, as punishment, is made to attend the Home Economics course where he does very well but Christine realizes that George's grasp of Mandarin is poor and sends him on an evening course. Barry Barry demands more money from Sue to help her keep order so she confesses everything to Simon, who threatens the boy whilst Dynasty, having finished with Kevin over his kiss with Princess, manages Kasey and gets her a fight. The Browns' estranged grandfather, Laurence, a former army sergeant major, arrives at the school after a message from Audrey and wins over the pupils with stories of his service experience. However a spiteful Lisa sees him as the enemy and steals his medals.
