Deirdre met Bev in a bar in a hope that she could identify the mystery John. Bev's John was not Deirdres John Lyndsey. Bev was relieved as she liked John, but he left the bar as she wasn't the person he hoped she'd be. Back in Blackpool, Jim and Liz plan to escape on a boat. They leave but are stopped when they notice that Ashley, Claire and baby Josh are on a sinking boat. When Jim takes the boat back to crop them off, he is met by the police and is arrested.
