Vera questions her about how well she knows Ray Thorpe and Tricia say's she only just met him. Alf passes his driving test. Fiona rows with Alan for putting Liz in danger. She accuses him of using both her and Liz. Alan gets annoyed and tells her his conscience is clear and that Fraser is now out of Police custody. Jim refuses to talk to the Weatherfield Gazette about the siege so Percy does. Tricia is upset when Jamie says he wants Brad to grow up hearing nice things not the shouting that he grew up with. Des believes Samantha thinks a lot of him since the jump. He calls on her and tells her they make a good pair. Deirdre is sad to hear Ken is up in front of the Governors over his affair with Sue. He accuses her of betraying him when she admits to telling Audrey about him and Sue in the first place. Des makes a play for Samantha, telling her that he knows he turns her on.
