Nick and Eva are intrigued to see that there's a new bar opening next to the bistro. Audrey receives a caution at the police station. Tommy suggests to Tina that he could buy Jason's flat using the money from Jeff as a deposit. Jason's all for it and Tina's thrilled at the idea. Gail finds David and Kylie busy putting their stamp on the salon. She tells them to turn the music down and insists that things have gone too far and they need to reach a compromise with Audrey. Tommy sets off for the bank to get a mortgage. Audrey storms into the salon with Lewis in tow. She demands that David signs the business back over to her but David refuses. Betty's son Gordon arrives and breaks the terrible news to Emily, Rita and Dennis that Betty has died. Leanne gives Ken an Easter egg for Simon. Ken relents and tells her that she can give it to Simon herself later on, whilst Peter's at a race meeting. Rita reminisces to Dennis about the good times she's had with Betty. Gail tries to make Audrey see that David is only trying to protect her from money-grabbing Lewis but Audrey refuses to listen. Carla tries to make Leanne understand Peter's decision to ban her from seeing Simon. Carla admits she disagrees with it but Leanne's unmoved. Kylie's incensed to see Lewis has put up an A-board outside the motor home calling her and David amateurs. Tommy arrives back from the bank to find a skip-hire company trying to shift his camper van. The skip-hire boss threatens Tommy and a scuffle breaks out. Tyrone suddenly recognises the bloke as Terry Duckworth. Tommy is gobsmacked to discover that he's fighting with his real dad.
