Tommy tells Jason that he's no longer interested in buying the flat as he and Tina are going travelling instead. Owen demands cash up front from Terry before he'll start work on the new bar. Sally annoys the factory girls when she snaps at them to get back to work, pointing out that she's no longer just a machinist. Jason unwittingly lets slip to Terry that Tommy has inherited some money from his granddad. Terry's immediately interested. Sally tells Carla about her new ideas for Underworld. Carla bites her tongue. Stella leaves Sunita in charge of the Rovers and makes it clear that Karl isn't allowed behind the bar. Terry takes out a photo of Tommy when he was a baby and crumples it up to make it look battered and worn. Rita, Emily and Stella help Gordon clear out Betty's house. Gordon's moved when he finds an old photograph. Karl whispers "I miss you" to Sunita behind the bar. It's clear she's flattered. Rita finds a letter from Annie Walker bequeathing the Rovers to Betty. Stella's worried, wondering where this leaves her. The women agree to keep it from Gordon while they work out what to do. Terry calls at No.12. Tina can't believe his brass neck but Tommy lets him in. Sunita's run off her feet and reluctantly agrees to let Karl help behind the bar. Terry gives Tommy a sob story about how he couldn't cope with a baby on his own and had no choice but to sell him to the Hortons. Tina's scornful. Sunita surprises Karl by kissing him passionately. As Terry leaves No.12, he hands Tommy the baby photo telling him how he carried it with him all his life. Tommy's clearly taken in.
