Dev gives Deirdre the day off because she's so upset. He tells her to stay in his flat for the day. Mike calls round looking for Dev and Deirdre invites him in. She lets slip to Mike that Ken is thinking of taking Adam to Scotland. Meanwhile Ken calls round to try and patch things up with Deirdre. He is furious to find Mike there and even more annoyed that she's told him about his Scotland plans. He storms off leaving Deirdre very shaken. Anthony and Norris apologise to Rita for getting so drunk and missing the party. Rita forgives them. Fred decides that as a marketing ploy he's going to arrange a "Sausage Trail". He canvasses the idea with other nearby butchers and they are all keen. Ashley insists that as he now has his own shop that he should be allowed to enter separately from Fred. Steve plans a night out with Karen much to Vik's annoyance. Charlie and Emma go out for a drink together as Curly's away and Matt's at the football. Charlie and Emma say goodnight to each other, Ryan Sykes is watching from a distance. Just as Emma goes into the house Ryan throws a brick through the front window. Emma is terrified - she sees the brick but doesn't know who's thrown it.
