Ena tells Albert she doesn't want to return to the Mission - she's enjoying her retirement. Doreen skives off the factory to work dinners at Snape's and gets annoyed when Billy flirts with Sheila. Emily begs Swindley to take Ena back - she can't cope with being caretaker at all: the area's so rough and she is having sleepless nights. David gets the chance to play in the first team. Ken worries about keeping his fling with Marian a secret. Christine tells Joe she can not marry him, they wouldn't work out together. She tells him he's too much of a penny-pincher.
