Deirdre feels that everyone knows about Ray's affair and are talking about her. The police tell Stan they've checked his alibi and he's clear - he can also have the cart back. The police find Eddie's fingerprints on the cart. Stan says he hasn't seen Eddie for years. The police tell Hilda that Stan was at the races when the cart was stolen. She goes for Stan. Peter returns to Glasgow. Eddie is horrified that the police are after him and that Stan has ruined his alibi by saying he hasn't seen him. Ray accuses Deirdre of punishing him. She doesn't know what she wants from the marriage anymore.
