Mavis enters her picture 'Still Life with Biscuit Barrel' in the art class exhibition. She insists on driving Norris' old car to get some independence. Emily resents the way Mavis has taken over at the art class and doesn't find it enjoyable anymore. Mike and Steve settle the deal with the band manager. Mike refuses to let him waste money on machinery, instead telling Steve they'll sub-contract and use out-workers. Steve is forced to agree. Andy fears he's left it too late to get on a course. Mavis is flattered by Roger Crompton's portrait of her. He feels it brings out hidden passion and is thrilled to receive second prize. Derek views the exhibition and is furious to see the portrait.
