Kirk hides from Fiz at the Battersbys' house, afraid to admit that he's not on the run any more because he was homesick. Norris tells Rita that the Gazette delivery hasn't arrived so that she doesn't see the article about her. Rita's solicitor, Leah Mirrelson, warns her that, without witnesses, the case will come down to whom the magistrates believe - an injured child, or her. Fiz and Tyrone find Kirk, and are horrified to hear that he turned himself in as they've now become accessories to the crime. They go with Kirk to the police station to retract his statement. The police advise him to accept a caution instead. Rita overhears herself being discussed in the Rovers. Cilla delights in showing her the article and she's humiliated that she knew nothing about it. She's angry with Norris for leaving her unprepared to face everybody by hiding the papers from her. Eileen's horrified at the wording of the lonely hearts ad, until it's pointed out to her that there's an attractive quality of honesty and directness about it. Cilla revises her offer to £3,000 to drop the charges against Rita. Rita tells her that she'll see her in court.
