Norris arrives at Mavis' party with PC Bentley to break the news that Derek is dead. Rita goes with Mavis to identify the body. Jim struggles to keep calm when he confronts Andy about leaving University. Andy is drunk and explains that he intends to be a dropout. Rita tries to comfort Mavis but she is numb with shock. She feels her life will be meaningless without Derek and is upset that her last words to him were not ones of love. Tricia warns Vera that she won't remain a prisoner at the Rovers and, if she wants to find a man to be Brad's new father, she will. Judy has a relapse over Derek's death as it reminds her of Joyce. Emily is stunned by Derek's death and offers Mavis support but Mavis throws it back in her face as she had made excuses not to attend her party. Rita worries that Mavis is too calm and hasn't cried. Alma worries for Mike when he grows certain that he'll go to prison for arson. Norris gives Mavis her birthday present from Derek's car. Alone she opens it and finds a silver locket engraved with love to her. She weeps over it.
