Cilla stops by Fiz' to give Chesney a DVD she bought. Chesney is excited, until she informs him it has been dubbed in Mandarin, but has English subtitles. She then makes a date with a reluctant Fiz to go to the Rover's to discuss things.
Cilla and Fiz do go to the Rover's, and talk about Chesney. Cilla maintains that living with Fiz is not a proper place for Ches, and Fiz asks if there is anywhere better for him to live. Cilla then admits that she messed things up with Fiz, and she has, at times, messed things up with Chesney, but there is still time, she says, to make things better for him. And she wants to do it.
Kirk comes home to find Less wallpapering. Kirk is baffled at Less' transformation into the working class Martha Stewart. Less acts as though this is all part of everyday life at the Battersby-Brown's, and sends him away.
The Lady is a Tramp
Tracy is standing on the street, staring, it appears, at Charlie's house. Cilla comes by and the two look at each other a bit, then Tracy asks Cilla what she is looking at. "Eight years, hopefully four with good behaviour," Cillas replies, and then says, "oh no, that's you, isn't it?" At least she didn't hand her a pamphlet.
Tracy then sees Blanche- this bit was cut out of the episode. She asks Blanche to baby sit. Blanche wanted to read a book, but in the end, of course, Tracy wins, and Blanche is set to baby sit while Tracy goes out on a bit of a date.
Next Tracy runs into Steve and they discuss the possibility of Steve taking Amy on if she goes to prison. They go back to the Barlows. Tracy once again daydreams about the two of them staying together, and they have a bit of a bonding moment.
The next time we see Tracy she is all set to go out on the town. Claire comes by, and wants to have a sleepover, and do each other's hair, and talk about boys, or the adult version of that. Tracy apologizes to Claire and says she is going out with an old friend, but she and Claire can chat some other time. Claire grown up that she is, and understanding that people have lives, gets annoyed and leaves. Blanche, who is present throughout, lays into Tracy as soon as Claire leaves. She calls Tracy a liar, and, I believe a slut or a slag (or both). Tracy looks at her and says that she knows where she got her personality from. That serves only to wind up Blanche even more. She says it looks terrible for Tracy to go traipsing about with some fella when her common law husband is hardly dead and she was the one to kill him. Sure, it sounds bad when you put it that way. Tracy is not dissuaded.
