The McDonalds are sickened to have been beaten by the Duckworths. Liz asks Jim to ask Mike for his job back but Jim refuses to beg. Jack is disappointed and Vera elated when the solicitor advises them to put her name over the door because of his past run-ins with the police. Billy and Betty return from honeymoon. Mike closes the garage whilst Kevin is on holiday rather than re-employ Jim. Raquel is relieved when Vera tells her that her job is safe. Betty is stunned to find Vera is her new boss. Don is pleased when Sarah Louise invites him over for bonfire night, but he lies and tells her that he's working. Jim gets drunk in the Rovers and mouths off about the Duckworths. Rodney throws him out and bars him. An upset Liz begs Jim to talk to Mike. When he refuses she says that she will. Jim tells her that she'll regret it if she does.
