Vera suggests to Jack that they decorate the back bedroom and bring in a lodger. Susan tells Mike that she's frightened and doesn't want to live in the country. Jack is against having a lodger. Mike is puzzled when Susan tells him that she needs some space and wants to get away for a while. Mavis goes to court but isn't allowed to serve on the jury as the defence council objected to her. She doesn't know why he objected and takes it personally. Mike tells Deirdre that he's worried about Susan's state of mind. He tries to stop Susan but she goes to Newcastle. Alec goes to Germany. Jack accuses Vera of wanting to have a man in the house and is surprised when she tells him that she wants a female lodger.
