Plot

Alma doesn't like the idea of Mike suing Ken. Mike tells Des that he wants him to be a witness as he heard Ken calling him a con man. Des tells him that he doesn't want to get involved. Curly signs contracts on No.7. Alec's pal, Harry Norton, who supplies animals for acts, tries to interest him in renting a vivarium with a spider in it to attract customers. He lets him have one, with a Mexican mouse-eating spider within, on trial. Alec is pleased when it does stir trade but Bet tells him to get rid. Vera is thrilled when Lisa tells her that she will be staying on when she hears Terry will be staying in Strangeways so that she's nearer to visit. Mike gets annoyed when no one wants to testify against Ken. Alma asks him to drop the case but he refuses. Don tells Ivy that he wants her to stop visiting him. She is distraught. Mike tells Ken he'll drop the case if he apologises. Ken refuses.
