Deirdre remembers Linda booking a holiday at Sunliners and is annoyed at her stupidity for not realising Jon was married. She's upset that she's lost her £5,000. Janice is alarmed to discover Leanne has gone to Scotland with Nick. Deirdre goes to Jon's house and warns Linda about Jon and how he's being lying to her. She is stunned when Linda threatens her with the police, saying she knows that she's been stalking Jon for months. Linda tells her that she's sick and mad and needs treatment. Gail is horrified when she learns Leanne is with Nick in Scotland. Janice tells Gail they've obviously had to sneak away because they knew Gail would try to stop them and tells her she's to blame if anything happens to them. Linda sympathises with Jon for having crazy Deirdre following him around. He suggests she goes away for a while with the children in case Deirdre turns violent. Toyah makes a banner in protest against the Red Rec bowl and is upset when Spider laughs at her spelling mistakes. She tells him that she hates him and he is forced to tell her that he likes her. Deirdre wonders if she really is going mad. Gail is appalled by the thought that couples run away to Scotland to get married.
