After a night of passion with Steve, Vicky tells him she cannot marry Robert. She also tells him she is broke and the wine bar is losing money. He promises to pick her up later and return to Weatherfield. Bruce's boat is sold to Wilbur Franklin and Bet has money again. Vicky tells Bet the wedding is off. Bet tries to dissuade her but Vicky sneaks out to meet Steve. Steve and Vik set off back up north with no intention of picking up Vicky. She realises she has been stood up. Bet takes her back to the bar, and Vicky realises she does want to marry Robert. Steve thinks he has escaped until customs men stop him and ask him to open the van.
