It is still New Year's Eve. Sally doesn't give Danny an immediate answer to his proposal - she wants to talk about it at home, this thought troubles him. Ken is depressed and he is determined to make a fresh start. The atmosphere is still tense at Anthony's. Isabel is confused and uncomfortable but Amanda forces her to stay. Rita tries to confront Amanda but is interrupted by Norris. On New Year's Day, Danny is hurt at Sally's lack of response. Rita tells Anthony that she is determined not to let Amanda scare her off. Maria wants to spend the night with Tyrone, but he keeps changing the subject and she is not happy about this. Toyah, Geena and Liz are fed up with Fred, Mike and Duggie interfering.
