Betty enjoys having Fred to boss around at home. Joan feels Annie seems fine enough. She refuses to believe the brewery will throw her out. Billy tells Joan that Annie will have to live with her but Joan doesn't want her. Ralph Curtis takes the Ogdens out to celebrate Stan's birthday. Inspector Gorman of the police tells Annie she is responsible for the after-hours drinking even though she was absent at the time but lets her off with a warning. Billy realises the responsibility of the Rovers is too much for Annie. Joan tells Annie she's welcome to live with her. She is relieved when Annie tells her she couldn't live with her; they wouldn't get on. Ralph wears the Ogdens out sightseeing. Hilda can't help thinking how things might have been. Joan returns to Derby. Len tells Billy there is a way for Annie to stay in the pub and that is if Billy were the landlord.
