With a new roundabout being built, all the town's traffic is diverted down Rosamund Street. With Emily away, Myra helps at Gamma Garments. Elsie puts pressure on Dennis to get a job. Jack thinks Joan should be sent home. Joan tells Concepta that Gordon is against them having children and won't let her work. He treats her like a child. Dennis plans to open a club but no one will back him. Jack tells Joan she must stand against the Davies' and makes her see that her marriage will not be a bed of roses. She agrees to return to Gordon. Elsie is shocked when Dennis agrees to go for a labouring job at Amalgamated Steel in the despatch department.
