Roy has spent all night at the dining room table, head in hands. Mike invites Audrey to Delphines for her birthday. Archie persuades Mike to cancel as he's already secretly booked a table. Deirdre defends Tracy, upset at all the attacks on her daughter. Ciaran presents Sunita with his "grandmother's" ring, but says they can't marry until next year, as he'll need to save up. Sarah persuades Todd to come on the camping trip. Eileen makes peace with Todd, and looks around his flat. Fiz is worried about Roy. She looks after him and arranges for Vera to open the cafe. Katy lies to Angela about an all-night party at the weekend, so she can spend the night with Martin. Angela suspects her real motives and asks Gail for advice. Fiz asks Rita to talk to Roy. Rita tells him that she knows that he's a decent man who was taken advantage of, and she's sure that Hayley will feel the same way. Dev annoys Sunita by questioning the origins of the ring. She tells him that she's moving out of the flat and will find another job as soon as possible. Fiz confronts a defiant Tracy in the Rovers. Fiz punches her to the ground. She issues a warning not to mess with Roy again. Mike tells Audrey that Archie is waiting for her at Delphines. Audrey arrives late, but Archie is delighted to see her. After supper, he amazes her by proposing. Audrey gives him a definite maybe.
