Vera decides to visit Terry to tell him about Lisa and Des. She refuses to forward a letter for Lisa from Blackpool. Steve drives Vicky back to boarding school whilst he's on a job for Mike. Bet says goodbye to Vicky after getting her to confirm her suspicions that Alec has a girlfriend. Deirdre tells Tracy that she's sick of her cheek and sarcasm. Tracy takes no notice. Bet doesn't feel jealous, just annoyed that Alec hasn't told her. Rita tells her that she's well rid of him. Deirdre sees Maggie in the Street and goes for her, accusing her of turning Tracy against her. Maggie tells her that she's brought it all on herself. Des tells Lisa that he's taking her to meet his parents. Vera opens Lisa's letter and finds it's from Terry, begging for another chance. Alf refuses to have anything to do with Sally's petition and tells her to send it to Harry Potts. Vera confronts Lisa with the letter. She is surprised when Lisa calmly tells her it's not her concern. She tells Vera that she can keep Terry; she doesn't want him. Alone with Des, Lisa breaks down, he promises her that they'll have a fresh start.
