Sid is attempting to contact his girlfriend Cassie Ainsworth, who has moved to Scotland, while his dad Mark is trying to figure out how to use his new vacuum cleaner in order to clean up for a dinner party, where he will meet his ex-wife Liz who moved away in Sid's central episode in the first series. Mark walks in as soon as Sid reaches Cassie on the video chat but things turn sour when Sid mistakes Cassie's closeness with her gay Scottish friend as cheating (he had become suspicious of this in the opening episode due to Cassie's euphemisms regarding her Scottish friends' instruments). Anwar arrives in order to have sex with his new girlfriend Sketch.

Liz turns up, with her new boyfriend, Manfred, who Mark clearly resents. She shows her husband how to use the vacuum cleaner and eventually walks in on Anwar and Sketch. The rest of the family turns up just as Sid is about to discuss Cassie's alleged cheating with his parents, which results in an awkward dinner scene, which highlights Mark's cold relationships with his father and brother. Mark convinces Liz to pretend they are still together for the family, which becomes difficult when the family reveal they are staying for the night. Sid confronts Cassie about her actions, and it is ambiguous whether they break up at this scene or not. Nevertheless, Sid breaks his laptop in a rage. Manfred arrives, crashing his car in the front and demanding Liz comes with him. Despite being bloody, he fights Mark and his brother, until Liz takes him to hospital. After Mark's dad insults him for losing his wife, Mark orders everyone besides Sid out of the house, and states that regrets being cruel to him, realizing that is how his father had always treated him.

The next morning, Sid plans to apologise to Cassie and tries to call her but she has blocked his number. Disaster strikes when Sid discovers his father has died, possibly the results of a heart attack after all of the events the previous night. He attends college as normal, where he walks past Tony, who is trying to hold a cigarette with the aid of Jal and Sid. Sid is unable to tell anyone about his father's passing at school, becoming detached.

In private, Tony, who now has an issue with his language occasionally getting jumbled approaches Sid. They eventually agree to go for a drink, where Abigail is performing with a band. She approaches Tony, where Sid informs her that Tony loves Michele Richardson. When Crystal Castles come on stage, Sid opens up to Tony about his problems, resulting in an emotional embrace. They go back to Sid's home, where Tony helps Sid come to terms with his father's death. At the end of the episode, Sid is seen on a train, presumably headed to Elgin to see Cassie. At the same time, Cassie is seen taking a train in the opposite direction, to visit Sid in Bristol.
