Steve is released from custody and is annoyed when Jim believes he must have been handling drugs. He swears Alan is trying to scare him off. Mavis moves out of No.4 and stays with Rita. Steve thinks that Alan isn't certain whether Fiona's baby is his and worries that she really has slept with someone else. Sally goes with Chris to feed Natalie's cat. She gets curious and wanders around the house. In the bathroom she writes "whore" on the mirror and pours her expensive bubble-bath away, leaving the taps running. Later Sally feels guilty and confesses to him. When Steve jokes about Alan not being the baby's father Alan thumps him, horrifying Fiona. She tells Alan she's sick of him being paranoid and swears the baby is not Steve's. He begs forgiveness. Chris and Sally discover Natalie's house has flooded. Chris tells Sally he'll take the blame but she feels terrible. Jim is furious to see Alan has beaten Steve up. He wants to fight him but Steve begs him not to; Alan might have him sent to prison. Kevin and Natalie return home to find the hallway flooded. Chris tells them a pipe burst. They believe him until Natalie sees "whore" written on the mirror.
