The McDonalds worry about Steve's whereabouts. Liz fears that the gang have got him and wants the police brought in. Bet guesses that Vicky is at the Ardens' house and gets Don to drive her to Handforth. Alma asks after Ken and is humiliated when the receptionist tells her that he's checked out of the hotel. Liz grows hysterical when Jim refuses to contact the police and suffers stomach pains. Andy calls for an ambulance. Raquel announces she'll be around for a few weeks as she's doing modelling work for a catalogue. Curly is still bitter about being dumped by her. Bet finds Steve and Vicky asleep at the house. They swear they didn't get up to anything. Bet gets Steve to call home but he doesn't get through as Jim is on the phone to the ambulance. Liz is taken to hospital. Raquel breaks down and tells Curly and Angie that she's finished with modelling and has nowhere to go as her dad saw some sleazy photos of her and called her a dirty little slut. They comfort her. Vicky refuses to be lectured by Bet as she knows she's been having an affair with Des Foster. Steve is shocked to discover he's caused Liz to go into premature labour. The next morning, Bet tells Vicky that she wanted to make Alec jealous with Des but it backfired. She swears she wasn't unfaithful and Vicky believes her. Liz gives birth to a premature baby girl. She names her Katherine and realises she has little chance of survival. Jim is heartbroken. Raquel stays at No.7. She feels bad for the way she treated Curly before.
