Annie forces herself to be nice to Carole and Diane. Bert enjoys working again, even if it is labouring. Bet likes working at The Rifleman but misses the Rovers. Gordon Lewis is furious that Annie has taken Fred back. He tells her that she's made a mistake but she tears him off a strip. Mike buys the flat and furniture for £25,000. Annie realises she made a mistake not trusting the staff by bringing Gordon in. He tells her that she's too old to run the pub. Annie tells him that she's made a report on him for Richard Cresswell at Newton & Ridley's. Betty gets a job at The Rifleman as well as Bet. Annie offers Bet and Betty more money to return but they are upset that she didn't trust them to run the pub. Annie apologises. The girls agree to return on the guarantee that in future Betty will be in charge in her absence. Emily finds Arnold waiting for her at home.
