Roy is eventually released from the cells and is just in time for the re-enactment although he's cutting it fine. The re-enactment takes place, Fiz is a spy but decides she won't double-cross Roy to Fred's annoyance; Karen is a witch, Maxine is a princess on a pantomime horse and Sam is hit by a flying pie and breaks his arm. The whole thing disintegrates into farce. Roy is furious with Fred for ruining his day and eventually they have to be led away by security to make way for the Bessie Street Twirling Kazoo Band. Back at the Rovers and Roy's Rolls the Roundheads and Cavaliers rally their respective leaders and convince them that the fight is not over. Roy and Fred go head to head in the Street, Fred ends up on the ground while furious Roy holds his pike to Fred's throat. Hayley drags Roy off before any damage is done.
