The Barlows prepare No.1 for Ken's homecoming. Deirdre is terrified as she knows she'll have to tell Ken about Peter. Under pressure to drum up business, Todd distributes colour leaflets on the cheap. Jason doesn't think it will make a difference. Dr Gaddas agrees to see David and Kylie about Max at short notice. Peter is despondent, believing that Ken knows about the murder charge and has chosen not to write to him. Kylie tells David about Max's dad, Callum Logan, who was sent to prison for assaulting a judge. Ken returns from Canada earlier than expected. Deirdre is thrilled and ushers him into the house when Steve and Eileen nearly let slip about Peter. Ken gives the Barlows presents and reveals he's now a vegetarian. Todd secures Jason a roofing job in Crimea Street. Ken can sense something's up. Tracy and Rob leave Deirdre alone with him so she can tell him the news. Ken admits he's taken Deirdre for granted this last year and apologises. Deirdre is about to tell him about Peter when Eccles escapes into the ginnel. While she chases after her, Ken goes to the shop, leaving a note. David and Kylie describe Max's hyperactive behaviour to Dr Gaddas. They find out he could have ADHD. Ken runs into Carla and asks if she did her best to keep her marriage afloat. It becomes clear that he thinks she and Peter split up because of Peter's drinking. When Carla says this isn't the case, Ken demands to know the truth immediately.
