Frank feels guilty over Kathy's confrontation with him and decides to go and see Alan. Jack plans a romantic supper for Sarah. Frank matter of factly tells Alan that he'll write him a cheque for £500 and recover the bike for Chris but Alan refuses to part with it. When Frank threatens to take it anyway, Alan calls his bluff saying if he did he would ruin Chris's reputation. He mentions that he's noticed the bike is worth £5000. Zoe is disappointed to learn that Rachel is going on a date with Michael tonight. Henry admits to Annie that he's considered retiring again since the going-ons with Marian. Annie makes him realise that he needs to stick around and keep Alan in check at The Woolpack. Zoe invites Archie to the pub later. Frank returns the keys to Chris' bike back to him saying he's bartered with Alan to get it back for him. Chris is furious with him. Zoe calls round to 3 Demdyke Row and offers to take Michael out for a Chinese tonight. He turns her down saying he's already made plans but quickly changes his mind and agrees. Elsa overhears. Rachel is giddy about going to the cinema with Michael. Chris informs Kathy of Frank bartering his bike back and reluctantly admits he did want the bike back. Kathy notes how he and Frank are quite similar in their attempts to make amends with people they care about. Rachel's disappointed when Michael cancels claiming he has the flu. Chris collects his bike back from Alan. Frank is pleased to hear Zoe is going out tonight and tells her she doesn't get out enough. He gives her the money to cover her meal and she graciously accepts. Elsa tries to teach Elizabeth to touch-type as Michael frantically rushes around trying to dress for his date with Zoe.

Chris tells Kathy he now understands how she felt when he was throwing money and gifts at her as a way of showing affection. He plans to sort things out with Frank. Nick asks Alan about vacancies for part-time barstaff at the pub again but Alan still hasn't decided what his plans are. Archie invites him to join him and Rachel for a drink. He mentions that Zoe and Michael have gone off on a date and Rachel and Archie are outraged. Zoe invites Michael back to Home Farm for a nightcap.
