Ivy is distraught over Brian's absence. Gail is horrified to discover Elsie told Ivy about Roy Thornley. Elsie accuses Ivy of having a big mouth and calls her a hypocrite. Elsie threatens to chuck Suzie out if she doesn't pay her rent arrears. Steve tells Mike they need three more machinists to finish the order. Mike tells him to sort them out. Brian refuses to come home. He tells Gail he wants her and the future is what matters, not the past. He tells her he wants to marry her as soon as possible. Steve offers Suzie a job as trainee machinist and she realises she'll have to take it. Mike refuses to have Suzie working at the factory and tells Steve to withdraw his job offer. Steve refuses as Mike gave him the job of hiring the new staff. He threatens to resign. Mike tells him he'll have to be responsible for Suzie. Gail and Brian set the date for 11th August at the Registry Office. Bert is pleased for them.
