Darren receives another package from a friend. Sue hounds Ali to talk to Alan about his disrespect towards them. Pauline searches for an old photo for Lou, who is attending a talk at the community hall about the old East End.

Magda and Simon return from visiting Magda's parents in Leeds. Simon comments on how great Magda's family are, especially her father, and tells her he has not ever received a postcard from his father. Magda suggests he sends his father one instead.

Colin's flat is burgled again whilst he is at jury duty. Pauline walks into Colin's flat to clean and finds it ransacked.

Angie tells Sharon she will not be offended over who she chooses to spend Christmas Day with.

Ethel purchases a new lightbulb from Ian at the shop for the centre light in her living room. Ian realises Ethel cannot change the lightbulb in her living room without climbing a ladder, something she cannot do with her bad hip.

Ali talks to Alan about his partying habits, but ends up sucking up to him, leaving Sue unimpressed.

Carmel is stopped on the street and given a letter by a stranger.

The police ask Pauline questions about the burglary, as well as if she is the wife of Arthur.

Carmel talks with Doctor Legg about Ethel and her concerns for her welfare.

Simon tells Carmel to prepare to be spoken to by the police over Colin's burglary, and that he saw Darren in the Square with a bloke.

Dot and Lou attend the talk about the old East End at the community hall. Duncan also attends the talk, as does Sharon, and they sit together. Angie visits the talk late and asks Sharon about Duncan. She is shocked to learn he is a curate.

Carmel confronts Darren over his work and gives him the letter she was given, which gives Darren instructions on where to go for his next "job". Darren admits to Carmel he is selling pirate copies of videos around the world as there is good money in it. He gives Carmel a sob story on why she should continue letting him live with her, and she falls for it.

Sharon takes Duncan to the Vic and Den is also shocked to find her with a curate.

Colin asks Den if the Firm are behind his intimidation, and assures him he will not be frightened by them.
