Toyah is annoyed by the way that Spider has planned the Indian trip without consulting her. Ken proudly shows off his first published copy of Weatherfield Yesterday. He assures Fred that he hasn't said that Bernard Cartwright was a murderer. When Leanne puts Spider down, Toyah gets angry and decides she's had enough of small-minded Weatherfield. Emily is surprised to hear Spider is going travelling in India. She wishes him well. Rita goes to Stephens Bookshop to look for a genealogy book and is helped by owner Anthony Stephens. Emily offers Norris a room, no longer wanting to live alone. He's delighted. Toyah is confused at the thought of spending a year in India and feels rushed by Spider. Ken urges her to do what she wants to, not what other people want of her. Spider is stunned when she tells him the time isn't right for her to travel but that he should go without her. Norris moves into No.3. Toyah assures Spider she does love him and tells him that she's been lucky to love him. He leaves.
