Jack takes the day off from the Rovers, with his back, to pallbear. Vanessa Morgan starts at Bettabuy as management trainee. Reg puts Curly in charge of her. Ted tries to bring Rita out of herself. Jack is horrified to see Alec at the funeral. He tries to hide from him but is spotted. He escapes through the graveyard. Olive Oaks thanks Martin for saving her life. Sister Walker suggests that he trains as a nurse. Jack runs home from St. Mary's, Alec follows him and sacks him when his muddy shoes prove his guilt. Jack begs for his job back and Alec, faced with having to do cellar work himself, agrees to take him back. Reg thinks Vanessa is a spy for Brendan, possibly even his girlfriend. Ted takes Rita for a meal. He tells her that he'd like a companion to spend his retirement with.
