The police call on Deirdre and take her to the hospital, Samir having been found with a bad head injury on the canal bank. He is in intensive care, unconscious. Fiona is hurt that Steve doesn't seem to care about her safety. Steve is scared when the heavy returns to say he's from a debt collector who wants paying. Denise tells Fiona she'd like her to manage the Salon for her as she wants to stop work and spend time with Daniel. Fiona is thrilled. Billy takes Betty to the Ritz ballroom for a tea dance. She is uncomfortable when he suggests they have a foreign weekend away together. He urges her to be impulsive. Fiona is upset when Steve doesn't share her joy over her promotion. She slams out of the flat to spend the night at her parents' house. Steve asks Vicky for £5,000 but she refuses. Deirdre is stunned when the doctors tell her that Samir isn't going to recover. She gives her consent for his kidney to be taken for the operation. Ken comforts her.
