Vince turns 30 and Stuart throws a birthday party for him, apparently without much help from Cameron, who gives Vince a car for his birthday. Not to be outdone, Stuart gives Vince a much more adored Dr Who K-9 robot.
Stuart realizes that he's holding Vince back from being happy with Cameron, and orchestrates an unforgivable act by inviting Rosalie to Vince’s birthday party and then outing him, knowing that this will at least temporarily drive Vince away from him.
As Romey and Lance's fake wedding date approaches, Lisa tries to enlist Stuart in yet another unforgivable act of reporting the scam to the Home Office. Not wanting to be involved directly, Stuart tries to trick Nathan into doing the deed, but the teenager sees through Stuart's plan and calls him out on it before agreeing to take care of it/
