Troubled Ashley leaves the keys hidden. Alec is desperate for a stand-in for Joyce. Fred now thinks Ashley should hand in the keys. Det Sgt Neil discovers Ashley with the keys and invites him for questioning. He is led away and has no alibi. Mike and Angie play games over the business. Rita confronts Alec with his deceit but assumes Joyce's identity when Adam Newbould turns up and mistakes her for the cleaner. Ashley flounders under questioning. Rita gets Alec to cough up for a memorial for Joyce to make up for desecrating her memory. The Police let Ashley go but tell him that the matter is not being dropped.
