Vera is worn out as she lets "Lusty Jack" off work as she doesn't want to upset him. She goes to see Magenta Savannah herself to get help.

Liz is thrilled when Jim moves his head but the nurse warns her it could mean nothing. Roy talks to "Lusty Jack" in the hope of learning about Eighteenth Century Weatherfield. He is puzzled when Jack thinks Bonnie Prince Charlie fought the Scots. Samantha accuses Natalie of stealing Des from her. Leanne tells Rita about Nick using her as bait to trap Brian's murderer.
