Brian feels useless as he sits and waits for news of Bert. The Duckworths view No.9. Vera and Terry like it although Jack tries to get Terry to side with him. Vera tells Jack to put the £1,000 down as a deposit. Chalkie is dreading flying. When Mike demands that Ivy returns to work she is forced to tell him Bert has disappeared. He tells her that he'll cover for her at work. Jack asks Chalkie if he can rent No.9 off him but Chalkie throws him out. Kitty Earnshaw tells Hilda that her marriage guidance is working. Phyllis tells Hilda that Mrs Earnshaw has been a widow for twenty years. Hilda can't believe she's been taken advantage of and calls Mrs Earnshaw a liar, but Mrs Earnshaw calls her a hypocrite for not caring about people with problems. Vera is horrified to find that Jack tried to get away with renting No.9. She tells Chalkie that she definitely wants it. The police find Bert in a Bristol hospital. The residents wave farewell to Chalkie as he leaves for Australia.
