Steve is starting to win Karen round. She asks Steve to go and wait in the flat for her as she just wants two minutes with Joe. Reluctantly he goes. Kirk continues to look for the dog. He fails to notice a beggar with a dog which fits the photo-fit. Kirk doesn't realise he's in a red light area and is arrested on suspicion of kerb-crawling. The policeman lets him go when he finds that Kirk only has 70p on him. Deirdre apologises to Tracy for gloating and asks her to come home. Tracy says she will eventually but not yet. Jason is gutted when Tony Stewart, under pressure from Merle, tells him that he'll have to move back to Eileen's house. Eileen can see that Jason is upset. She asks him if he wants his old bed back and he admits that he does. Kirk offers to perjure himself for Les and pretend that he witnessed Les's thumping. Joe tries really hard to persuade Karen to forget about Steve and go out with him but Karen says she wants to make a go of her marriage. However, Steve phones and demands to know why she's been so long. She realises that he still doesn't trust her. She turns her back on Steve and she and Joe have sex in the factory. Steve hammers on the door.
