Rodney leaves the Rovers and the Duckworths vacate No.9 as they officially take over the Rovers and sign for all the stock. Betty is sad to see Bet's name being removed from over the door. Vera and Jack are thrilled with their pub until the brewery removes their till. Vera sends Jack out to buy one whilst she opens up with a handbag serving as a till. Betty feels cut off as Vera keeps her in the kitchen. She is insulted when Vera asks her to clean the pub as well as cook. Vera is shocked when Betty resigns. Jim finds that he isn't entitled to claim the dole as he was sacked. Billy is surprised when Betty tells him they're going on holiday as she doesn't want to be around when Vera begs her to return. Andy is pleased when the Duckworths want him to carry on working at the Rovers. Fiona decides she'll have a go at modelling. Vera can't believe she is really landlady of the Rovers whilst Jack is too worn out to even think about it.
