Mavis struggles to do Nick's paper-round and moans about being treated as a packhorse. Audrey can't sleep from worrying about Nick. Alf tells her that they should contact the Platts as he's been missing for four days. Liz refuses to accept Jim's offer on the house. He threatens to withdraw the offer and stop paying the mortgage on the house. Vera tries to find out if Terry spent time at Tricia's flat. She tries to work out if she wants the baby to be Terry's so he can fill her life like Tommy did. Alf phones Martin and suggests he returns. Kevin is taken on at Fast Fitters Exhaust Centre. Anne agrees to take Andy on shelf-stacking for the holidays. Tricia tells Sally that she doesn't know what to do about the baby and longs for Terry to be told as she feels certain he'd stand by her. Martin returns and is horrified to learn that Nick has been missing for four days. Jamie knows something is wrong with Tricia but she refuses to tell him what. Jack refuses to believe Tricia will abort a child and warns Vera against getting involved as he knows they'll end up supporting the baby. Martin is furious to find that Nick posted his keys through the letterbox, a fact which Alf and Audrey overlooked. He phones Gail and tells her to come home.
