Plot

Tracy tells Blanche that Deirdre slept with Dev and that she told Ken just before he went into court. Blanche slaps Tracy across the face. Tracy says she's disgusted that her boyfriend Dev has slept with her mother. Dev tells Karen that he's offered to buy out Vik's half of Street Cars. Karen can't believe that Steve hasn't mentioned this. Joe looks round Vik's old flat above the taxi office and tells Karen that he wants to rent it. Deirdre and Ken arrive back home with Ken devastated at Deirdre's revelation. Deirdre and Tracy have a blazing row over what happened and Deirdre throws Tracy out of the house. Blanche, worried and upset, goes to the Rovers and leaves Ken and Deirdre to talk. Deirdre explains to Ken that she just had a stupid crush on Dev but that it meant nothing. Ken can't accept it and tells her that she's never loved him as much as he loves her. Tracy confronts Dev. He says that it was a one-off mistake sleeping with Deirdre and persuades Tracy to come and stay with him. Doreen is feeling depressed. Fred comforts her. Ken tells Deirdre that he can't live with her any more and walks out. Deirdre is inconsolable.

Notable dialogue

Ken Barlow: "You know the sad thing? I don't think you know what it is that you do want. You say you want excitement, but when it comes to choosing, when it comes to deciding what's best for your future, you always come back here to me. That just shows how you always back away from what you feel that you want. That just shows how scared you are of being happy."
