  • It’s Sunday morning in Coronation Street: Frank and Ken step out to buy newspapers while Elsie is still furious about Ena. She goes to the Vestry to confront her but Swindley, about to start a service, tells her that Ena is visiting her sister and will return at midday. Elsie takes her rage out on Dennis. She’s worried also about how to make her peace with Annie. At the Rovers, Annie herself confesses to Jack that she feels very sorry for Elsie but she is cold and haughty with her when she arrives to apologise for her actions. After she’s gone, Annie tells a flummoxed Jack that if she had given her an easy time, she would have done it again. Elsie’s humiliation at Annie’s hands only makes her even more short-tempered with her own family. Doreen breaks Annie's plate in the Rovers. Jack tells her it’s a Beaumont family heirloom and Harry offers to get Albert to fix it. Martha and Minnie overhear Elsie making threats against Ena. The Cheveskis receive a letter from a workmate of Ivan's in Canada. His photos of the affluent life there interest Linda. Swindley sees that Ena is back home and tells her that Elsie is looking for her. She goes to the Rovers where Martha stirs up trouble repeating what Elsie’s been saying. Ivan passes this news on to Elsie. The two women meet in the street and a furious row breaks out as the residents watch on. Accusations and insults fly and Dennis has to hold Elsie back from hitting Ena. She rages at Elsie that the contents of the letter are undoubtedly true and, if she had written it, she’d have signed it as she’s never been ashamed of her beliefs. Elsie realises with a shock that she’s right. The argument ends with neither of the women happy about it. Returning to the Rovers, Annie spots Albert handing Jack the repaired plate. She berates him without pausing until Doreen confesses, upon which she happily forgives her. Harry reminds everyone that the mystery isn’t over yet as they still don’t know who wrote the letter.
