Peggy has requested her own burial plot opposite Pat Butcher. Sharon swoons over Andy as he accidentally interrupts their meeting. Sharon tells Roxy that Peggy would approve and the three women do their best impressions of Peggy. Andy storms in having found £10 that Ronnie put in his bag to cover her cost for lunch. He asks that she doesn’t touch his things again. Later Andy overhears Ronnie telling Jack what happened and Andy apologises for being touchy earlier.

Later, Jack, Ronnie, Roxy, Andy and the kids sit down to dinner when Ronnie receives a call from Dot; she has something Ronnie needs to see. In the Laundrette, Dot has Andy’s shirt and looks down at the newspaper article about Danielle’s death…
