Norma mopes over Ken being with Janet. Maggie tells her that she shouldn’t hold a candle for him. In Scotland, Edith Tatlock shows that she’s unhappy about Janet taking Val’s place. Albert reveals he helped liberate Charleville in the Great War. Minnie tries to get the truth out of Ena about what happened in Wales but can't. Norma lets slip to Albert that Janet is in Scotland with Ken. Ena tells Minnie that she had words about how to run a boarding house and it was obvious then that her face didn’t fit. When the cheque doesn't arrive, Len and Ray go to Weatherfield Plastics only to find that it went bust that morning and that the workers are locked out.
