Mike has a rare moment of lucidity and looks better than he has for days but it's short-lived and he soon returns to his confused state. Roy encourages Fiz to go travelling and gives her some ideas of where to go. Ashley's barely speaking to Claire and continues to blame her for letting Matt get hold of Joshua. Claire's very upset and hurt. Danny persuades Mike that signing over power of attorney to him is the right thing to do. Mike's grateful to Danny trusting him implicitly. Maria suggests to Kirk he buys out her half of the kennels by getting a bank loan. She would then buy the Salon with her half of the money plus a loan. Fiz thinks he should sell his half too then they could go travelling. Kirk's not keen. Mike asks Rita how Len is and wonders if he'd like a drink. Rita's upset to see Mike in such a pitiful state. Claire pours her heart out to Bev about the row with Ashley and how he keeps comparing her to Maxine. Meanwhile Fred tries to make Ashley see sense. At the solicitor's Mike signs over power of attorney to Danny. Fiz is fed up as her hopes of seeing the world evaporate. Roy suggests she could go to night school instead. Fiz thinks she might do a course in kick-boxing. Mike has another bad turn and puts himself to bed. Danny feels guilty at using Mike's illness to his own advantage.
