Tonight: Stephen sees his future at Underworld slipping away, Audrey and Ken counsel Sarah and Adam, and Aggie gets ambushed at Yvette’s charity auction.
STEPHEN IS PUSHED TO BREAKING POINT Owen strides over to Stephen and reveals that after a frank discussion with Jenny, they’d both like to know why he told them each a pack of lies. As Stephen scratches about for a plausible reason, Owen tells him that once he takes over the factory, he’s fired. Stephen warns Carla against selling the factory but she insists that she has to for the sake of her mental health. Stephen kicks himself. The frustrations of the day getting the better of him, Stephen trashes the factory floor. Arriving to witness his meltdown, Michael wonders what’s going on. Unpacking in their new flat, Stephen suggests again to Elaine that they should buy Carla’s share of the business. When Elaine snaps at him and spells out that she will never invest a penny in the factory and they should simply enjoy their retirement, Stephen masks his fury.
KEN OFFERS ADAM A WORD OF ADVICE Sarah confides in Audrey how she loves Adam and threw it away for a stupid fling. Audrey urges her to tell him how she feels. Sarah begs Adam to give her another chance. When Adam refuses, Sarah turns the tables, suggesting he’s partially to blame as he was always at work. Adam’s seething but when Ken likens their marriage to that of his own to Deirdre and urges him not to throw in the towel, will Adam be moved?
AGGIE ATTENDS A CHARITY AUCTION Aggie, Sally and Dee-Dee attend Yvette’s charity auction. Under pressure from Yvette, Aggie bids £3k for a summerhouse, expecting to be outbid. She’s horrified when Yvette brings down the hammer and declares it sold.
ELSEWHERE When Amy suggests she could use her inheritance from Deirdre to fund her legal fees, Steve won’t hear of it, adamant that he and Tracy will find the money.Max calls Gav and confirms that he tracked down Bec. Gav asks him to tell Bec how sorry he is and to persuade her to take his calls.
