Steve tells Vicky that he needs her and doesn't want her family turning her against him. He feels that if she acts all innocent she'll be let off. When Kevin complains about all the taxi services he's doing, Don reminds him that he is the boss. Vicky tells Nick that she's decided to take the blame as she doesn't want to send Steve to prison. Alec confides in Rita that he had to give up the cruises as a younger man was promoted over his head and they disagreed on policy. Nick makes Vicky see that if Steve is prepared to lie now he'll lie in court and she'll end up in prison. He takes her to the police station where she makes a statement. Alec wants to view No.12 but the keys held by the estate agent, Herbert Townsend, don't fit the lock. Maureen tells him that it's her marital home and is no longer for sale. Steve is arrested. The men, backed by their wives, tell Fred that they don't want the horse sold for meat. He gives Vera all the feeding bills and tells her to sort out the mess. Steve returns home to find Vicky packing with Alec. She tells him that she's told enough lies and she can't live with him anymore. She moves in with Alec.
