Eileen phones Paul to cancel their date, but he calls round and persuades her she is going out.
Paul waits for Eileen at the Bistro, and Gail spots him....and is trying to chat him up...... even telling him that she is the owner of the Bistro.
The date goes well, but at the end...only a little peck for kiss.
Eileen is happy after her date, and agrees to having a drink with him again.
When they get back to her house, he gets a phone call, and rushes off, saying a work colleage needs him to talk through a bad shout.
I'm not so sure he was telling the truth....but we will see!!
Paul must have dropped his wallet in the rush to get away, as it was found on her floor. His address is inside, so she decides to drop it round to him.
He answers the door, says thank you, as he had been searching for it, and quickly shuts the door in her face.
Later on, Paul comes round to explain. After Eileen reluctantly lets him in, he says that his brother had been at his house in need of consoling.
She then asks him outright if he is married and he says no, but he used to be.
So all is well again, and they go out again.
This time the evening ends with a couple of proper kisses, which pleases Sean and Marcus who spied them from across the road.
It's Ken's birthday and Steve is invited for tea, but is late due to Stella popping out to see Carla.
Tracey is cross with him, but they make up, and he stays the night.
Stella and Karl return from holiday, and Tracey is soon put in her place by Stella when she tells her about her work shifts, because Steve had put Tracey sort of in charge in Stella's absence.
Peter calls on Carla before going off on holiday with Leanne to St. Ives.
Later, the police also call on her, to say that Frank has got bail, but assures her that he will not come near her.
Stella then calls on Carla, and tells her that she knows what she is going through, as she was also raped.
Carla decides to go to the factory to get some files, but finds Frank's mother, Anne there, who tells her she has been put in charge by Frank.
Carla decides she must go to the factory the next day, and Anne Foster appears, insisting that she will be looking after Frank's interests, and wants to be in on all meetings with clients.
To avoid this, Carla rearranges one meeting, bringing it forward, and meets the client, Rory at the Bistro. All is going well until he asks after Frank...and then says he'd rather just do business with her. Then he touches her knees, and she is scared and flees from the Bistro.
The next day, Rory rang and spoke to Anne, before Carla got in...to cancel his order. New materials have been delivered, and Carla gets cross when Kirk asks what to do with it, then she sends everyone home.
Later, at the factory, Anne appears with men to take away materials and machines and things that belong to Frank, as he wants to start up elsewhere and take his clients too.
The girls try to stop some of the machines being taken, but Carla tells them that it is all legal.
After this, Carla decides to go to face Frank, and Maria goes with her.
She demands that he gives back the machines etc., but he says no, and says that HE is the victim of this affair.
He makes a complaint to the police, who later call on Carla to tell her to stay away from Frank.
