Linda is suspicious about Mike's trip to the trade fair, but he assures her that she has nothing to worry about. Todd and Jason get to grips with Dennis being around and he offers to make a curry to make them feel more comfortable around him. Eileen appreciates his efforts. Ken and Deirdre row about Dev telling Mike about Susan and Adam. Ken suggests that Deirdre intended for Mike to find out, leaving Deirdre feeling bitter. She says that Susan is hardly blameless, and is partly responsible for not telling Mike in the first place. Mike, Duggie and Linda agree to ban children from the Rovers after an unsuccessful trial to turn it into a family pub. Sam confides to Dennis that he's thinking of going back to stripping to make some more money to buy a car, but is worried what his mum will think. Ken confronts Dev about interfering, but Dev stands his ground and retaliates by accusing Ken's family of being morally corrupt by keeping Adam's existence a secret from Mike. Amanda sends Anthony on a wild goose chase by pretending that Isabel has had a bad night. A devastated Amanda defends herself by accusing Anthony of betraying the family. Dev is cool towards Deirdre about his row with Ken, which upsets Deirdre so much she ends up resigning. Ken pleads with Mike to leave Susan and Adam alone, but Mike pledges to fight for his rights as Adam's father.
