Stan spends all his money on drink and discovers he has to find Elsie's £50 by the weekend. Betty refuses to accept the sack and carries on working. Ena is disturbed by Cliff Stone watching her in the Rovers. The Barlows return from Scotland and refuse to take over from Alice in looking after Albert. Elsie cheerfully lets Stan find the money in as much time as he needs but, not knowing this, Hilda slags her off to her face so she changes her mind and demands £5 a week. Ena tells Albert he needs someone to look after him permanently or he'll end up in an OAP home. Elsie remembers that Stone is an ex-con, just out of prison. That night, Ena is woken up by noises downstairs and catches Stone in the studio with the floorboards up.
