Ritchie Fitzgerald tells Samantha that they'd have worked things out if he'd known about the rape. He is jealous of her relationship with Des and tells him that they're getting back together. Mavis is put out when the Battersbys look round her home. She is upset that they're not interested in buying it, just in her furniture and ornaments. Jon tells Deirdre that Linda wants to sell the house and split the proceeds. Steve is horrified to hear the gossips saying Fiona is pregnant. Rachel accuses him of still being obsessed with Fiona and tells him to choose between them. Samantha can't think of her future as she's only just dealt with the past. Jim is stunned to hear Fiona is pregnant. Ritchie tells Samantha that he's seen Des off and wants her to give their marriage another chance. When he falls into a drunken sleep, she goes to Des and tells him that her marriage is definitely over. He is delighted when she tells him it's time they went to bed together.
