Peter accuses Ken of packing Susan and him off to Glasgow because he couldn't cope with the responsibility of them. He is bitter that Ken washed his hands of them; they both needed him but he was never there. He tells Ken that Susan needs him and he should take his one chance of being a proper father after cutting them out for fifteen years. Ken is stung by his words. Deirdre prepares Susan for the wedding, Tracy and Jessica Midgeley are bridesmaids. Mike hires a video firm to record the wedding. Bet, Betty, Hilda, Ivy, Vera, Ida, Shirley, Emily, Alf and Audrey attend the wedding. Friend, Don Lester, is Mike's best man. Brian considers emigrating to Sydney. At the last minute Ken rushes to the church to give Susan away. Brian suggests Gail shows Ian something of Weatherfield. She begins to warm to him. He sees that her life lacks excitement. Mike thanks Ken for coming but Ken tells him it was for Susan's sake. Ken tells Deirdre he knows he's lost Susan. Brian tells Gail they should emigrate.
