Les refuses to believe the protestors have found a Roman site and tosses away an old brooch as rubbish. Alf sorts out an eviction notice for the protestors and plans to start clearing the Red Rec. Ashley is amazed when Zoe has an interview with Mr Sparrow of Social Security, applying for Income Support and Housing Benefit as she's told them that she pays Ashley £100 a month rent. Ashley panics that he'll go to prison for fraud if it's discovered he and Zoe share a bed. Fiona goes into premature labour whilst working in the salon. Steve is on hand and rushes her to hospital in his car. When bulldozers move onto the Red Rec, Emily leads the protesters in organising a sit down protest in front of the machines. Roy gets Professor Barker to look at the relics and declare them to be genuine. Alf is sent for and after talking to the Professor agrees to call off the bulldozers, saying that the relics are an exciting find. Spider, Toyah, Roy and Emily celebrate saving the Rec. Realising the brooch to be genuine and perhaps valuable, Les gropes around in the mud trying to find it. Samantha tells Des that she needs him and pleads with him to take her back but he refuses. Fiona is scared of the birth and pleads with Steve to stay with her. He agrees.
