Karen talks Franky down from the roof and offers to teach her how to read. She makes another pass at her during a lesson, though, and gets a slap in the face. Back in the city, Lynn and Doug move in with his friends Bernie and Suz. She refuses to sleep with Doug until they are married. They get married in the back garden with a celebrant; meanwhile, Bernie talks Doug into doing a payroll job with him. Meg wises up to Vera and Lang's heavying of Marilyn and warns them off.

    It turns out that Lang is a heavy and is the guy that pulled Vera a few episodes ago, and once Marilyn confesses her secret, he drops her, and Marilyn is happy as she is reunited with Eddie. Lynne and Doug marry in the garden of a friends house soon after she refuses to sleep with him until they are wed, and Franky breaks down over recent events, but her attempt to learn to read leads to embarrasment when Karen rejects her advances. She later heavies in on an escape with Lizzie and Doreen, as they steal a ladder from the shed, and clamber the fences.moreless
