The police find Alec's briefcase and return it to him. He takes great joy in showing Bet and Cecil Newton his two paying-in books - one for the Rovers and one for his artistes. Bet apologises to him for ever doubting his honesty. Deirdre calls on Mike at his flat and pleads with him to drop the libel case. Alec is horrified when Bet tells him that she now knows how successful he is and she'd like to help him spend his money. Deirdre tells Mike that they could lose everything if he sues them. He admits all he wants to do is teach Ken a lesson and doesn't want to hurt her. Gina goes for a job in a factory but she makes sure she isn't taken on by showing how thick she is. Mike enjoys having Deirdre in the flat pleading with him. She is shocked when he finally agrees to drop the case.
