Roy asks Ken if he will do a talk for the members of the Weatherfield Historical Society, and tells Ken that the new chairwoman, Anita Scott, requested him as she is a fan of Ken's work. Emma eventually backs down and tells a worried Vera she will turn a blind eye for once. Les finds out the Council have to let him go and this sends him back into a depression. Geena and Shelley are at loggerheads over the Christmas decorations for the pub. Eileen is putting on a brave face, but she is angry when she finds out Dennis is fixing Jason's bike.
