With the cafe having suffered with dodgy electrics over the past few weeks, Rocky was certain that nobody would suspect arson and thus he deliberately started a fire before setting off to meet Kathy at Walford East for a meal.
What he didn’t bargain for, however, is that Bobby would be out for a stroll and spot the fire through the window.
Horrified by the sight of the blaze, the young man entered the cafe and grabbed a fire extinguisher, urgently trying to get the flames under control.

But a subsequent explosion ripped through the building, illuminating Bridge Street, leaving Bobby in serious danger. News of the fire reached Kathy and Rocky, who swooped into action.
Peter (Thomas Law), meanwhile, raced to Bobby’s aid, with both he and Rocky entering the cafe in a bid to save his life. The duo, however, ended up trapped, with Rocky subsequently losing consciousness.
