Mike phones Susan and gives her one last chance to let him see Adam, before threatening to take legal advice. Norris goes to see Matt, complaining about sore knees, but Matt has a hangover from the night before. Roy and Hayley discuss whether to tell Jackie Mosley about Hayley's sexuality. Peter and Ken worry about Susan after finding out about Mike's threat. Ken calls Susan but she ignores the phone as she is busy packing suitcases for her and Adam. She tells her baffled son that they are running away to start a new life. Amanda visits Rita again, and find they have some common ground on the subject of Anthony's divorce, but Amanda accuses Rita of having a master plan to destroy their family. Dev is appalled to discover that the cancelled council contract means that he and Duggie have lost £10,000 each. Dev bars Steve from the Corner Shop in disgust. Roy, Hayley and Jackie go ten-pin bowling. Roy takes a book of rules which Jackie finds hilarious, and they all get to know each other better. Anthony breaks down and confesses to Rita that sometimes he wishes that Isabel would die, leaving him to get on with his life. Mike and Ken are rowing about Susan and Adam when Peter arrives and announces that Susan has died in a car crash.
