Elsie barricades herself in No.11 and has the lock changed. Minnie feels the pinch with Jed gone and the rent increase. Concepta discovers the photo of Ken was for Rita Spears. Minnie offers Elsie bits of furniture if hers is taken away. Elsie locks herself out when she forgets to take her new key with her and Len has to help her gain entry. Ken hopes that Rita's passion will die during the Easter holidays. Jed sends Harry the £22 and ten shillings he owes him. On the pretext of returning a book, Rita turns up at No.9 dressed to kill.
