Bet learns that Alison Dougherty is now working at the Graffiti Club. She is furious as she's now a barmaid short. Gail pleads with Brian to come home. He refuses and tells her there's nothing more to be said - he struggles to hold back the tears. Betty tells Bet she'd gladly return to the Rovers. She is upset when Bet tells her that she can't return; Gloria is back on the team. Betty has enough of Bet lording it over her and announces she's through with Weatherfield. She goes to London to stay with Gordon. Derek thanks Mavis for her help; he was able to tell the MD what his feelings were and Neville Hawthorne is to remain his junior. Kevin plans his twenty-first and decides to visit his family. He doesn't know if Sally will come with him as she's busy at the Rovers. Gloria is surprised to find the sight of Alan and Rita together doesn't hurt as much as she thought it would. Alec accuses Bet of setting him up with Alison; she's run off with the takings. Bet thinks it's hysterical. Brian moves in with Ivy, telling her that he's come home for good.
