Neil's helping Susan with the stock take, and Hayley chats to him about Alan's stag night. Later he worries that Susan's wearing herself thin fretting about the shop's low takings; it's not her fault. But Susan feels bad giving Peggy the decreasing figures every month. She feels they need to do something. Neil has a brainwave. What about reinstating the upstairs of the shop as a flat, as it used to be? He could do the work, with some help from Christopher. If it secures Susan's job, wouldn't it be worth it?
Roy wonders whether the timing's wrong to ask Will to be Abbie's godfather, but he decides to go for it anyway. At Casa Nueva he finds a tense Will trying to cope with how upset George was when Will told him he was going away. Will says it's all such a mess. Roy assures him that kids are resilient. Will's incredulous when Roy asks him to be a godfather; he's hardly a worthy candidate, he nearly killed his own brother. Roy says he can't think of anyone he'd rather have. Will eventually says he'll think about it. As Will leaves for Gloucester, Roy comforts a tearful Clarrie.
