Jim returns home angry and drunk. He tells horrified Andy and Anne that he dumped Liz on a roadside. They drive off looking for her. Jack and Vera are alarmed to find Roy camping in their cellar at night searching for any signs of a ghost. He hasn't found anything. Andy calls in Steve and Vicky and the four of them search for Liz in vain. They turn on Jim who tells them with relish that he hit Liz and she's probably been picked up by a man. Andy tells Jim to keep away from all of them. Bruised Liz turns to Deirdre for help, with Roy paying her taxi fare for her. She breaks down in Deirdre's arms. In the morning she uses make up to make the bruises seem worse than they are; she wants everyone to know what Jim did to her. Steve and Andy are relieved to find Liz alive. Andy and Deirdre raid No.11 to collect her clothes. Bill advises Jim to clear Liz out of his head or she'll kill him. He tells him where Liz is but Jim isn't up to seeing her.
