Vicky asks Alec to stop being so nasty; Steve is not after her money, he really loves her. Bill enjoys being around Kevin again and decides to stay on as he's never met Sally. Steve tells Vicky that Alec has told him if they marry her money will be stopped. She tells him that Alec's lying. Percy volunteers himself to stand guard over the Wiltons' gnome, Guinevere. Derek tells him that won't be necessary. Deirdre tells Mike that she finds Roy Cropper too over-friendly. Mike tells her to let him know if she has any problems with the tenants. Vicky tells Alec that he's pathetic and she's seen through his nasty little trick. Alec is adamant he got Steve worried but Bet tells him all he's done is prove himself to be untrustworthy. Maxine moves into the cafe flat with Fiona to share it 50-50. Bill has nothing to do all day but drink. Kevin gets tired when Bill makes him go out in the evening after his working day. Derek constructs a mantrap in the garden made up of pots and pans. He decides to lay in wait and find out who comes for Guinevere. Roy pesters Deirdre late at night, inviting her for a drink. She refuses to put up with it and phones Mike. Derek sees someone in the garden at midnight but it turns out to be Percy on home watch. Mike tells Roy to leave Deirdre alone and make plans to move out. Tricia overhears Roy apologising to Mike for stepping in on his lady friend. The Wiltons find a dwarf azalea by the side of Guinevere with a note from Arthur. Mavis is amused but Derek thinks it's pathetic and in his anger walks straight into his mantrap.
