Emily is upset that her engagement ring has been stolen. Brian wishes that he could see more of Nicky but doesn't want to beg favours from Gail. Emily celebrates her birthday. She arranges to go out with Mavis but Mavis cancels in order to go out with Derek. Emily is annoyed. Derek takes Mavis for a meal. She enjoys meeting him in secret and gets drunk. She sympathises with him, married to domineering Angela. He panics when stepson Neville Hawthorne turns up at the restaurant and introduces Mavis as a client, manageress of The Kabin group. Brian promises Nicky that he'll take him to York for the weekend. Mavis wants to flee the restaurant but Derek makes her stay so as not to make Neville suspicious. She starts to cry when he snaps at her to act normal. Written by GusF
