Because Michael had given the information to Stephen it meant that the factory’s insurance wouldn’t cover the loss, leaving Carla facing the end of her business.
With Carla setting off to Spain to try and strike a deal that could save Underworld, she left Sarah (Tina O’Brien) holding the fort – and gave her instructions to fire Michael immediately.

Michael accepted his fate, but Dee Dee (Channique Sterling-Brown) convinced him that he should fight harder for his job, and when he made a fresh case to Sarah she relented and gave him his job back.

This time Sarah isn’t backing down and she insists that what happened was Stephen’s fault, not Michael’s.
Carla isn’t convinced, even when Michael tells her he’s working on some new designs that are looking really promising. But when a potential new client comes in for a meeting Carla realises that Michael’s designs might be just what she needs to clinch the deal and tells him to bring his portfolio.
Will she end up being glad that Sarah kept Michael at the factory if his designs win over the new client?
They can’t see eye to eye.
