Heather wakes in her freezing bedsit, with no electricity or hot water. Heather cleans Shirley’s house. She washes George at the launderette and discovers her afternoon shift’s been cancelled. Proud, Heather turns down Billy’s bag of free vegetables. Jane’s irritated when Heather insists she can’t host book club. Hungry, Heather narrowly misses out on finishing Dot’s breakfast. Shirley fobs Heather off when she asks for her cleaning wages, Heather accuses Shirley of being a useless friend since she’s been with Phil. Heather takes George to work with her, she’s thrilled when she opens a letter with a £20 note inside - she’s Minute Mart Employee of the month. Heather buys Dot chocolates and is about to top up her electricity key, when she realises Patrick forged the letter and puts her remaining money in the till. Morgan breaks the wheel on George’s pushchair; Heather’s furious and takes his 50p pocket money, angering Carol. Heather leaves George alone in the flat and sets out to find her mother and ask for money, giving her last coin to a homeless man on the way. Queenie’s not at her flat, a neighbour reveals she moved away years ago. Panicking, Heather rushes back to George. She packs a bag, takes George and gives him to Darren. Returning to the flat, she finds her cleaning money and an eighties tape pinned to the door with a note asking her to come to R&R. Carol and Morgan return George’s, fixed, pushchair and Carol reassures Heather she’s not a bad mother. Heather plugs in her electricity key. She plays Shirley’s tape. At R&R Shirley’s prepared an eighties night for Heather. Shirley’s angry when Heather doesn’t turn up, heads to her flat and bangs on the door. There’s no answer. Inside, Heather’s slumped in her armchair, unconscious.
