Deirdre is preparing to leave Weatherfield behind and start a new life in Morocco, but she knows that she has a few loose ends to tie up first. She explains to Samir she cannot leave without making things up with Emily. With Don working all hours, Nick is getting fed up with having to make his own tea and spend evening after evening alone. After a heart to heart with Gail, Nick decides that moving back into No.8 is not such a bad idea after all. Bet throws a leaving party for Deirdre and Samir at the Rovers. Raquel wants the world to know that she and Curly are in love and getting married. With Cliff's will safely written and signed, Jack has agreed to let him take charge of the house repairs but he has not expected him to go quite so far and Cliff paints part of the stone cladding blue. Vera loves it though. Nick moves back in. Emily puts off Deirdre coming round as she doesn't feel well. Jim and Liz gives the Rachids a lift to the airport but not before Emily makes up with them. A sad Ken watches them leave.
