Liz is annoyed with herself for being so trusting and plans to report the Connors to the police. Eileen encourages her to let the three of them thrash it out privately. Tim reports Gina's findings to DS Clarke and gives the police May's number in Costa Rica, hoping that discrediting Duncan will exonerate Sally. Sally is horrified to discover her new cellmate is Marcia. The bank tells Audrey she won't get her money back. Audrey is intrigued to hear from Evelyn that Claudia's salon is closed while as she puts an extension in. Paul meets Billy in the cafe and brings their date forward.

Billy and Paul flirt outrageously at the cafe. Marcia and Sally's cell is searched after the prison guards receive a tip-off about drugs but nothing is found. Sally swears she didn't report Marcia. The Platts noisily make an entrance at the crematorium as Mary sheepishly puts the flowers in place and beats a hasty retreat. Audrey sees Claudia in the front row and starts to think she was in cahoots with Lewis. Evelyn is also there, as she never misses a good funeral. Cathy helps out at The Kabin when Rita complains about running it single-handedly at her age. Her predicament gives Cathy an idea. Eileen brings the Connors over to Liz's but she doesn't appear to be in. Billy asks Eileen if she minds him seeing someone else. She tells him he's waited long enough for Todd.
