Elsie is horrified to discover the heavies are here to beat Dennis up. They hold her captive until Dennis arrives back to No.11. Elsie threatens to kill them if they touch Dennis. Ena realises the men are in No.11 and tries to get the menfolk to help the Tanners. Dave refuses to intervene as it'd finish him, while Jed uses the excuse that he's anti-violence. Annie and Ena attack Dave's profession for causing violence. He asks if the Rovers should be closed down because of the existence of rough pubs. Sheila asks Jerry to go somewhere special with her tomorrow. An unsuspecting Dennis walks into an ambush at No.11. Len shames the residents for not aiding the Tanners and goes off to help. Jack agrees and follows suit, horrifying Annie. Elsie tries to fight the heavies off Dennis. She lashes out with a poker and Dennis has to defend her. Jack arrives ahead of Len and removes his glasses before entering the fray. Goaded by Jack, the men lay into him as well but stop when Len turns up, threatens them with a glass bottle and throws £95 on the floor. The heavies take the money and leave. The next morning, Annie brags about Jack's bravery and credits him with saving the day. Dennis makes out that he scared the heavies off. To make sure he gets his money back, Len gives Dennis a job at the yard. Val brings her skirt up with safety pins, at Lucille's suggestion. The factory girls go on an outing to New Brighton and Liverpool. Jerry and Sheila go out to the park. Annie wonders how much Lucille is really earning. Jack refuses to pry.
