Rita is paralysed with shock at seeing Alan. He enters the house despite her telling him to go away. Curly lands the job of assistant manager (trainee) at Bettabuy Supermarket. Alan tells Rita that he wants to see Jenny but she is out. Rita is in tears as his presence threatens her. Audrey tells Dawn that she'll persuade Alf to buy a flat. Alan rows with Rita as he taunts her and calls her vindictive. Bet arrives to see Rita and Alan quickly leaves via the back door. Rita hysterically breaks down and is comforted by Bet. Alf refuses to buy a dockland flat. Alan tells Jenny that he wants to stay around her and needs her love. Alf is horrified to discover that Audrey knows how much money he has in the building society. Jenny tells Rita that she's being over-dramatic about Alan's visit.
