Alf delays having to break the bad news to Ena. Ken tries to talk to Edith but she’s made her appointment at the Town Hall. Ken tells her there’s nothing else to be said. Emily keeps Ena waiting in the Snug for Alf and Ernie to arrive. Irma dismisses Edith‘s chances but Elsie and Len make her realise that she can cause a lot of trouble. Ena guesses she hasn’t got the job from Alf and Ernie’s faces. Irma summons Edith to the Corner Shop and begs her not to take the twins from Ken, telling her she’s being destructive. Ena gets it out of Alf that Hetty Thorpe has got the job. Ken persuades Edith to cancel her appointment at the Town Hall and they take the twins to Glasgow to talk matters out. Edith apologises to Bet before she goes. Ena has a plan and orders Minnie to invite Hetty to tea at No. 5.
