Storyline

Joe continues his affair with Alice and they spend a highly-sexed long weekend together. He suggests she gets a divorce and goes away with him but she tells him that her husband would ruin them out of spite. He gets into a drunken pub fight with Jack Wales over Susan, with whom he has resumed his relationship and who is aware of the affair with Alice, telling him to dump her. Susan's father offers to set him up in business if he will leave town but when Joe refuses Mr Brown suggests Joe work for him and marry Susan - but he must never see Alice again. After Joe rejects her he hears that Alice has got drunk and died in a car crash. Distraught, he gets involved in another pub fight but eventually marries Susan, now ambitiously aware that he is heading for a job at the top. Written by don @ minifie-1
