Alf feels that he'll never be his old self again. Hilda fears she'll get gossiped about if people know she's going to Rhyl with Tom Hopwood. Sam Tindall is annoyed that he's only a reserve in the formation team. Audrey brings Alf home and refuses to let him do anything. Alf assures Deirdre that she isn't to blame for his heart attack. Linda Jackson tells Terry they can't see each other again; she loves Pete and doesn't want to lose him. Hilda and Tom go on the over-sixties' week in Rhyl. Terry wears down Linda's defences and kisses her. They are interrupted by Curly. Curly tells Terry what he thinks of him.
