Ena returns home, with Eddie taking care of her. Her legs are still weak. Mavis makes Rita realise that she's going to have to put Len first in everything in order to make their marriage work. Local man Les Fox chats Bet up. They arrange a date. She gets Renee to tag along for his friend Eric Bailey. Ena is furious to discover that Eddie has arranged to have a rota of residents looking after her all day and refuses their help. Councillor Tattersall pays a visit to the Street. He criticises the way Albert and Ena run the Centre. Rita tells Len she will always be independent and have a will of her own. Tattersall tells Ken he thinks Ken is letting Ena live at the Centre under false pretences - she's too old to work. He says he plans to give her her marching orders.
