Emily returns from holidaying in Devon to the news that Mavis is engaged and she is delighted for her. Derek tells Mavis he's stunned that she's shared a tent with Victor.

Debbie tells Bill she's seeing a girlfriend but really goes to a bikers' party with Dazz Isherwood. Percy starts up a neighbourhood watch scheme to fight the rising crime rate. Victor calls on Mavis late at night. She tells him that she doesn't want to see him again but he tells her that he doesn't accept she's going to marry someone else.
