Lisa is astounded to realise Zak is serious about going to South America. Louise struggles to maintain her nerve as the police investigation intensifies. Jarvis's secret is uncovered by Len.
The police presence in the village shows no signs of abating - but their door to door inquiries are only hindering the investigation as it becomes apparent that there is a lot of alcohol fuelled confusion over people’s movements on Christmas Day.
Louise is starting to feel the heat, though, and it is surely only a matter of time before the net closes in on her and the pressure to confess becomes unbearable. She anxiously awaits the results of the forensic tests – but they prove to be far from helpful.
The penny finally drops for Lisa and she realises that Zak really does intend to leave the family in search of Jed’s hidden loot. Shell shocked that he would desert them, she berates him for his selfishness. Their heated discussion quickly escalates and Lisa storms out forbidding him to go.
Ahead of the dancing competition, Viv revels in delight as she sees Len and Edna struggle to make any progress. Edna does not take kindly to mockery, though, and loses her cool as Viv and Bob glide effortlessly around the hall.
In a desperate plea for help, Len goes to see Jarvis in the hope that he can fix his two left feet in time for the competition – he doesn’t want to suffer the wrath of Edna anymore. But former ballroom champion Jarvis tells Len to mind his own business and sends him packing.
Paddy and Emily bid a fond farewell to Debbie as she goes back to her adoptive mother Pat. It won’t be long before they miss her quirky ways but insist the door is always open.
[The episode ends with Lisa telling Zak that she will not be waiting for him should he ever come back from Chile.]
