The Fowlers were in court again to see if Arthur would get bail and be home for Christmas to celebrate with the family. They all made their way to court and we got to see a rapidly deteriorating Arthur in the dock. It seems that every time we see him he is a worse state than before looking more and more dishevelled. Bail however was refused and Arthur was led away to the cells again. Meanwhile Pat was still in her highly manic state making Christmas preparations for the family and trying to block the fact that Frank was attempting to make contact from her mind. Despite the fact that Kathy was being more than well meaning in trying to get her to contact the nurse who was looking after him.

Speaking of Kathy her plans for Christmas at her house were dashed when Peggy announced she would entertain not only the Mitchell brood but the Beales and The Hills as well she was most resolute about this as well it seemed.

Felix continued with his no profit making barber shop, and as usual hung around doing nothing . Just what the writers are doing with him I don't know.

Robbie and Bianca planned to make extra money by carol singing outside the bingo halls whilst in the square Gita arranged another date with Guppi in Sanjay's absence.

Arthur's solicitor revealed that the handwriting was indeed Arthur's on the documents.
