Fiona worries that Steve could get hurt by Fraser's friends if Liz speaks against him. Jack suggests to Vera that the baby came on time and wasn't Terry's but she refuses to believe him. Gail tells Roy she'd be happy if the more experienced partner had the majority share and is surprised when he agrees. Liz is grateful when Fraser gives her a pay rise. Joyce asks Alec to take her back as cleaner but he refuses, annoying her. Jack visits Tricia in hospital and feels uncomfortable when she says she feels she's not a good mother. He asks Martin's advice on the baby and is told it is definitely premature. Tricia is thrilled when she's allowed to hold her baby for the first time. Joyce is annoyed when Judy takes Alec's side, pointing out that she did steal from him. Jamie is thrilled when Tricia returns from hospital for a break. Ashley gives Maxine a chicken and is despondent when she doesn't invite him for a meal. Samantha forces herself to get drunk when entertaining Sean. She lets him kiss her and surprises him by inviting him up to her bedroom. When she tells him she can't avoid sex with him forever he realises she has got drunk to give her the courage to bed him. He tells her it's insulting as he wants her to enjoy sex, not to see it as a one-way thing. She gets upset when he storms out. Alan tells Liz that he'd try to move Steve to another prison, out of Fraser's reach, but in return he wants information about Fraser's movements as he knows he's planning a big job. She feels she has to go along with Alan, for Steve's sake.
