It's Kirk and Maria's mum's anniversary. Kirk stays at Fiz's flat and they keep Toyah awake. Charlotte Morris insists on going to the hospital mortuary. Archie thinks that Charlotte should view the body. Richard seems to contemplate another murder. He puts a knife up his jacket sleeve. Just before they leave, the Police turn up saying that dental records have proven it was not Patricia's body he identified. Richard plays it off as a mistake, and the officer assures him that mis-identifications do occur. Gail invites Charlotte round for dinner the next night. Richard is angry. Maria returns from Canada. Back at the flat she is alone and turns the radio up loud whilst having a shower. Audrey hears it, knocks on the door but to no answer. Audrey asks Toyah and Fiz about it and takes them to the flat. The music has stopped and nobody is at the flat as Maria has gone out. Audrey thinks that she is going mad and is badly shaken. She confides in Archie and Richard. Meanwhile, Toyah and Fiz bump into Maria and piece it together. Kirk cannot afford flowers for his mum, so Shelley tells Peter to pay on his card at the florist. When booking on the phone, he arranges to go out for a drink with Lucy, secretly. Les asks Janice to pretend to move back in, in order to keep his house and she agrees. Roy is concerned about his petition against the Amusement Arcade. He goes to Curly for advice. Joe is getting increasingly worried about the police arresting him and puts it to Dev that if he drops the charges he'll dump Geena.
