A beaten-up Tony is carried out to the ambulance. Natalie accompanies him to the hospital leaving a fed-up Des who is sceptical that it could have been burglars. Nick is secretive about his new part-time job. Jim threatens to report Michael Wall to the health authorities if Liz goes off with him but Michael refuses to change his mind. Alec and Rita have an official opening of the door between their flats. Rita invites Alec for dinner so they can celebrate. Tony gives a useless description of the burglars to the police and Des is determined to find out what he's up to.
