Having outed Clayton on the internet, David has posters put up around the area bearing Clayton's photo and the caption "My name is Clayton Hibbs. I killed Kylie Platt". Steve brags to Tim that Tommy Orpington invited him into his house. Eileen starts to notice that Pat and Vinny haven't hired any contractors for the development. Vinny assures her that he's dealing with it. Freddie plans to take Audrey but worries as he doesn't know ballroom dancing. Gemma finds out that she's made the final three of the Weatherfield Good Samaritan Award but doesn't think she stands a chance as she's up against a philanthropic policeman and a twelve-year-old. Eileen hears from Tim that Vinny is at a casino and angrily reports to Pat that Vinny is frittering away their money. Pat goes along with her to "confront" him but warns Vinny first. The police question David about the posters and arrest him for perverting the course of justice. Outside the casino, Vinny collects fake passports for him and Pat. When Eileen and Pat arrive he calmly explains that the man he's with is buying one of the flats, No.8. David denies any involvement with the posters or comments online. He's informed that Clayton's trial might be postponed. Pat warns Eileen that her mistrust is putting the job in jeopardy. She is apologetic. Norris instructs Freddie on how to dance. Just as he's getting into his stride, Freddie trips over Tyrone's toolbox and breaks his wrist. Tommy calls at the cab office to collect his misplaced phone and ends up staying to play Subbuteo with Tim. Gemma goes before the judges and thinks she's done well, to Rita's amazement. Eileen's suspicions flare up when Rita tells her that the flat she's buying is No.8. The police tell David that Macca has suffered a serious head injury from a brick being thrown through his window. He's warned that he could go down for murder if Macca dies.
