- Daphne is nearly run over.
- Daphne realises that the driver was trying to kill Terry.
- Max finds out where Charles lives and goes over to sort him out.
- Jim tells Helen that she isn't going to marry Douglas.
HELEN: No wedding? What are you talking about? Has there been an accident, has something happened to Douglas?
JIM: Please, sit down.
HELEN: No, I don't want to.
Jim explains that Douglas has conned all of them. The company solicitor tried to contact Douglas's solicitor, but he doesn't exist. Helen says that it's probably a lapse of memory. Jim goes on that he went round to Douglas's place, but it was empty - Douglas has gone. Helen says it can't be - they are buying a house together and Douglas has the money.
One of Charles's heavies has arrived and pulls Max off Charles. Max isn't impressed and shouts at Charles while he is thrown out of the building.
Outside Charles's place
Daphne and Shane have arrived, just as Max is being thrown out. Max is surprised to see them and laughs sheepishly at them. They give him a lift home.
Daphne thanks Max for standing up for her - it was very brave of him.
Barbara comes in and finds Charles pouring a few drinks. He tells her that after they've sorted Terry tonight, they should leave Australia for a while. He explains about Max's visit - it's not so easy to push things under the carpet when upright citizens start getting involved. Barbara asks about the tape, but Charles says that he doesn't think Terry has it. But Terry shooting her mouth of is much more trouble to him.
Jim tells Lucy that Helen is having a lie-down because she's a bit upset. Lucy tells him that she's heading over to Daphne's.
Helen comes out of her room and tells Jim she's going to the cottage to see if Douglas is there.
Helen drives up and there is a "SOLD" sign on the cottage. It's a very nice place with a large garden. Helen goes up to the house and the owner comes out to greet her. He tells her he's just bought the cottage and he's just come to give it a clean-up before they move in. Helen starts to cry and goes quickly back to the car.
Paul and Terry are just arriving home. They are talking about moving to another city to get away from Charles.
Lucy comes in to see Daphne, while Sarah is fussing over the party. Des suggests that Sarah goes and runs a bath but she'd rather come and get the drinks with Des. Lucy opens the flour bin and is shocked to find the gun inside. Daphne explains that she's minding it for a friend - guns are very dangerous things, and makes Lucy promise she won't touch the tin again. Lucy promises. Then Lucy goes over to Terry's place to borrow some flour.
Lucy comes in and hugs Terry, explaining that she needs to borrow some flour.
LUCY: Guess what? Daphne's got a gun hidden in her flour bin - and it's a real one!
Terry tells Lucy that she shouldn't tell anyone - if the wrong sort of person got hold of it, they might hurt someone.
Just then the phone rings and Terry answers it. It's Charles. Terry claims that she's told Paul everything. He says he still wants the tape back, or Terry will be in a lot of trouble. Terry says she'll give it to him tonight - she'll bring it round to his flat. And after tonight she never wants to hear from Charles ever again.
Daphne answers the door to Terry. Terry tells Daphne that Paul is applying for an overseas posting and Daphne tells her to do it as soon as possible. She explains that she was nearly run down yesterday, and she thinks the driver thought she was Terry - she was wearing Terry's coat which had been in lost property at the coffee shop. Terry is horrified and says that she's had enough. She's told Paul the truth and Charles can't hurt them anymore.
When Daphne has left the room for a minute, Terry gets an odd look in her place and goes purposefully over to the flour bin. She quickly takes the gun and puts it in her bag.
Just then, Lucy comes in and Daphne too. Terry heads off.
Helen has come back. She tells Jim that the cottage has been bought by someone else. Jim decides to put the kettle on(!) He doesn't know how to help Helen. Helen says her whole life has been destroyed and she feels so stupid. Jim says that Douglas conned them all.
Jim says they should call the police really, and Helen agrees - somehow they have to get the money back. She doesn't want Douglas to do the same thing to anyone else.
Sarah is fussing over the party while Daphne and Lucy put the finishing touches to their cakes. Jim comes round to have a word with Des about the bank. He tells them about Douglas's disappearing act and wonders if Des could help to stop the cheque? Des says there's nothing he can do today, but he'll have a go in the morning when he gets to work.
Des has come round to commiserate with Helen who is sketching. She has drawn a picture of Douglas to help the police to identify him - Douglas never would pose for any photos. Des tries to get Helen to come to the party tonight, but she's still very upset and doesn't want to.
Paul doesn't want to go to the party, he'd rather stay in with Terry. Terry sends Paul off to unpack. She retrieves the gun from the shopping bag and puts it into her handbag. Terry sends Paul off for a shower while she goes to the shops.
Lucy is sad that Helen has locked herself in her room and is crying. Jim says that they should leave Helen on her own for a bit so she can think through her problems. They can see Helen later.
Just then, Helen comes out and sits on the sofa. She's still very upset. Jim promises to be back soon.
Charles calls out to Barbara to hurry up. He doesn't want her to stay because Terry is arriving soon. Barbara asks what Charles will do with Terry's body. Charles says he's arranged to have things "tidied away" while he is on the way to the airport. Just then there's a knock at the door and it's Terry. Barbara quickly makes herself scarce.
Terry comes in carrying her shopping. She tells Charles that she wants to have a normal life from now on. Charles asks her for the tape, but instead, Terry gets out the gun and points it at him.
