Jim has his vasectomy. When Emily fears that her builder is too slow she asks Percy to ask him to speed up. However, Percy tells him to take his time; he's enjoying himself at Curly's house. The Duckworths collect Tommy for a few days over his birthday. Jack tells Rita about his plans to buy No.6. She tries to tell Mavis but she's too busy to listen. Derek goes for his review only to find that instead of Angela it is Norris who will be reviewing him. Betty is delighted when Billy calls on her after holidaying in Cleethorpes. Derek feels his review is a charade whilst Norris enjoys making him feel uncomfortable. When Norris quizzes him about small problems at home, Derek realises that he must be the gnome-napper. Josie packs her bags and tells Don she's moving her stuff back home. She tells Don that he's changing and Ivy will destroy him if he's not careful. She warns him that she'll leave if he's just fighting in order to get one over on Ivy. Mavis is horrified when the Duckworths tell her that they're buying No.6. Des takes Tommy out and bumps into pregnant Steph Barnes. He is disturbed to see her again whilst she tells him that she's pleased they've met.
