The taxi arrives to take the Langtons to the airport but Deirdre is adamant she's not going. She feels a new start would make no difference; the marriage is finished as she can no longer trust Ray. Blanche urges Deirdre to try afresh in Holland. Deirdre feels a husband and a home aren't enough without love. Mike is pleased with having spent a romantic evening with Carole Gordon. Deirdre worries that Ray will take Tracy away from her but he realises Tracy needs her more than him. He tells Deirdre he's going to go to Holland. He leaves without saying goodbye to Tracy. Carole knows Mike is using her to be his inside person at Bradleys. She tells him she won't be giving him orders in that way. He tells her he'll see her around. She tells him Bradleys are opening a boutique which will be bigger than the Western Front. Len drives Ray to the bus station and promises to keep an eye on Deirdre and Tracy for him. Written by GusF
