Hilda tells Avril Carter that she knows she wasn't Archie Crabtree's fiancée and that Frank is her lover. Avril tells her she can't prove anything as she's been very discreet. Hilda threatens her with a court case causing Frank to tell Avril he can't risk a court case. He threatens to drop her unless she drops the fight. Avril realises that she is beaten and tells Hilda the shop is hers. Victor leads Mavis on to believe he's going to propose before telling her perhaps they could try the trial marriage just at weekends. He wants to be certain they're right for each other but Mavis refuses. She can't sacrifice her life for no security. The Barlows look at a house on Buxton Close.
