Kim is still bitter towards Frank because he let the Dingles move back into their house. She points out that it has not done him any good with Rachel as she is still refusing to let him see Joseph. Kathy is trying to cheer Nick up. She tells him that he will soon get another job. He does not share her optimism and becomes angry when Kathy tells him that Caroline is coming over to take Alice back to Scarborough for a few days, realising he has to provide a good home for Alice himself or he risks losing custody. The Dingles celebrate being back in their home with a row. Tina's bedroom roof is leaking as Butch used the slates to throw at the police during the siege. Nellie decides that they should have a party to celebrate their homecoming. Rachel tells Chris about her brief conversation with Frank.

Betty teases Terry about being stood up by Helen. Kim orders Biff to tidy up the gardens. He protests that he doesn't know anything about gardening, but this cuts no ice with Kim.

Nick tells her about Dave's affair with Kim and she is shocked. She agrees not to say anything to Kathy. Dave calls at Wishing Well Cottage. Nellie invites him and Kathy to their party. He hands her a letter from Frank. She thinks that it is a letter of apology, but it turns out to be a tenancy agreement with a demand for rent - £300 a month plus bills. Dave tries to pacify Zak over the tenancy agreement. Zak has no intention of ever paying any rent and he threatens Dave, who is made all the more uncomfortable by Tina's flirting. Vic teases Terry about being on his own. Terry gets his own back by saying that he'll wait a few years until Kelly is available. Caroline visits The Woolpack wanting a chat with Alan.

Dave, Linda and Biff turn up to take him out but he starts ranting at Dave and it is becoming awkward. Jan, Ned and Roy are enduring the party at the Dingles. Jan gets splashed with lager and then Sam announces that the toilet is blocked. Frank and Kim receive a frosty welcome when they go for a drink in the Woolpack and things become much worse when Nick and his friends arrive. Nick makes snide remarks about gossip that they could all talk about. He also tells Kim that Alice has been taken away from him. Jan and Ned escape from the Dingles party leaving Zak and Nellie alone with the karaoke machine. Nick is on the verge of telling Frank about the affair when Kim digs her stiletto heel in his foot and Dave drags him out of the pub. Kim looks pleased with herself.
