Len tells him not to bother as he intends to plead guilty. Jerry accepts Doreen's invite to the party but doesn't want to go. Swindley is intimidated by his PPOP opponent as he's younger, plays Rugby professionally and is a tenor in the local operatic society. Len thinks Elsie has gone away with Dave but Ken tells him he saw Dave driving down Rosamund Street on his own. Ken turns to Esther for advice. She tells him he'd be stupid to give up his job. Doreen massages Swindley's ego in order to wangle an early finish from Gamma and set up the party. Ken expects the worst as he reveals his plans for the future with Val.
