Gloria is intent on moulding Eric into the perfect mayor, much to Eric's distaste as a small child throws up on him! At the Reynolds' Marc is causing a fluster of activity as Len questions why Angie is tidying Marc's room for the fourth time. Marc's release from the young offenders institution is in jeopardy as he is unwillingly caught up in a drug scam. Torn between friends or freedom Marc is under pressure from Gaz not to reveal the real source of the drugs. Meanwhile, the guard collars Marc and he is forced to make the decision whether to 'grass' on Gaz. In The Woolpack, Gloria sets Eric a virtually impossible charm challenge to get Edna to buy him a drink. Eric gamely accepts the daunting task and wades in with his first tactics. Gloria is happily left to work her magic with Councillor Ledbetter, inviting him round for dinner. Resenting being skint all the time Latisha complains to Cynthia about her current none existent bank balance. Cynthia, recognising the frequent hints about being penny-less, suggests she should be satisfied with what she has got. Latisha is forced to take her pleas elsewhere, seeing Cain as her next target. A few tears are shed as Jess is packed off to live with her real mother.
