Fiz begins to suspect that Cilla has made the ransom note. Tracy is holding a birthday party for Amy, and has invited all the under-fives on the Street. Blanche also invites Norris, Rita and Emily. Katy, Martin, Sarah and Bethany all turn up. Scooter continues to work on the pond, but also watches a lot of television. Gail comes home and they agree to turn it into a sand pit to allay drowning fears. Kevin is prepared to have a go at Tommy in the garage, but Tommy is self-pitying so Kevin decides to lay-off. David and Craig joke about their dads, as Katy tells Craig he can stay with her if he wants. Tracy is annoyed at all her Gran's guests but brightens when Steve turns up at the party. Another of Blanche's friends, Lena Thistlewood turns up and is instantly attracted to an embarrassed Ken. Sally tries to play things down when Tommy confronts her about lying to Kevin. Blanche makes a show of Deirdre at the party, and Lena spills her snowball on Ken's laptop. Everyone decides to leave the party as the argument rises. Left alone Deirdre tells Ken about Blanche when she was young and her own solo performance as a shepherd playing the harmonica. Ken asks her to marry him again and this time she says yes. Tommy and Martin have another slanging match in the Rovers. Martin tells Tommy if he wants to find a child-abuser then he should look at Craig and then in the mirror.
