Spider and Toyah attempt to clear up the mess hoping Emily won't notice the fire damage. Rita is furious when Sharon fills The Kabin with fireworks to sell. She tells her that she hasn't sold a firework since Mark Hillkirk's accident in 1973. Sharon tells her it's nothing to do with her; it's not her shop anymore. Mike is surprised when Ken gives him a cheque for £10,000. He tells Ken that he'll always be second best as far as Deirdre is concerned. Spider discovers that Emily's wallpaper is discontinued. Melanie calls on Tom, inspects his flat then leads him into the bedroom. He is amazed that she wants to have an affair with him before she gets married. Roy and Hayley join the Weatherfield First Aiders. Mike is disturbed when Linda tells him that she's returning to her old firm, Wheelers.
