Karen and Steve make-up and apologise to each other. Tommy, against Angela's wishes, tells Craig that Katy is no longer a part of their family and that he's to snub her. Karen admits that all she wants is to be married to Steve but it's too late to go back on the divorce proceedings. Later, Karen rushes to the court in an effort to stop the divorce proceedings. Norris finds out that Katy is living with Martin. "That's the world told", says Martin. Fred tells Bev about a trip to Scotland with fellow butchers, but he can't go and leave Shelley in charge as it wouldn't be fair. Bev agrees to help out so that Fred can go. Sarah tells Gail that Brenda Fearns babysat for her as Gail is no support. At the court, Karen learns that the papers have been stamped and she's now no longer married. Karen goes back to the street and blames Steve. David snubs Martin when he tries to talk to him. In Street Cars, Karen overhears Steve talking on the phone to someone, arranging to meet them in some new bar down at Dock Street, tonight. Janice persuades Karen to follow him and see what is happening. She does so, only to find that Steve has laid on a candle-lit dinner for the two of them. He proposes to her and she tearfully accepts.
