Peter Ingram is in Intensive Care, having had a heart attack. Vera sprays 'Get lost you Yupis' with shaving foam on Des' car. Tina starts thinking she's indispensable and asks Alec for a pay rise. He flatly declines. Ralph Dobson announces that Ingram is dead. Bet gives Tina the night off to go on a date. Mike starts exceeding his authority at Ingram's Textiles and handles important phone calls, telling maintenance that they now answer to him. Offering his condolences to Jackie, he tells her not to worry about the factory. Des doesn't want to drink in the Rovers because of the Duckworths but Steph won't be chased out of her local. Mike tells Alma his contract was with the firm and not Ingram so it still stands. The Wiltons settle in for a relaxing evening at home. Vera accuses the Barnes' of pulling her stone cladding off. When Steph insults her she throws a piece of the cladding at their house but it misses and smashes the Wiltons' window.
