Elsie swears to boycott the Rovers. She receives an anonymous letter reminding her that she is not absolutely divorced as she forgot to visit the solicitor and her relationship with Bill could jeopardise it. Swindley sends out forty-three circulars before discovering the postage was a penny short on each one. Elsie rings Bill and tells him to stay out of the way. Jack and Doreen try to protect Annie against the pub talk that she wrote the letter. Elsie confronts Annie in the bar and accuses her of writing the letter but Annie tells her that she wouldn't soil her hands. When Ena sticks up for Annie, Elsie thinks she must have written it.
