The Barlows finish packing. Nobody wants to be Albert's housekeeper. Annie agrees to lay on a farewell party for the Barlows. Billy sells Ken's car for £130. Charlie Braddock and Gina tell Len and Ray that she's found a better job and they throw Gina out. The residents gather at the Rovers to bid farewell to the Barlows. As Ken waits in the pub, Val gets ready. She tries to mend a plug on a hairdryer and electrocutes herself, starting a fire by knocking an electric fire into a packing case.
