2668: Elliot lunges at Archie
Aired Wednesday, Oct 14 2009 at 18:30 BST on Channel 4

Making the most of their parent-free house, Leila, Ravi and Anita throw a house party. Anita's pleased when Ricky arrives but tries not to show it, insisting that they're just friends. Leila's not impressed when Archie arrives but when he pleads to stay, she gives in on the condition that he causes no trouble. The party's soon underway and everyone's enjoying themselves but it quickly descends into mayhem and chaos.

Anita makes a drunken pass at Ricky who knocks her back. Anita's then sick in font of Ravi who is becoming increasingly frustrated with his lack of control. Zak, Kris and Elliot soon arrive, much to Leila's horror - especially when Elliot and Archie start fighting. Theresa then turns up and still angry with Anita, she decides to exact her revenge by kissing Ricky just as Anita emerges from the toilet.

It's the final straw for Ravi when he sees Anita crying and he orders everybody to leave. Leila and Anita are shocked by his outburst and are embarrassed that their friends have been thrown out. Ravi tries to explain to Leila that he can't bear his sisters being upset. Feeling powerless and alone, he breaks down crying.

Elliot's still reeling following Leila's revelation that she slept with Archie. He tells Zak and Kris what's happened but is forced to reveal that he was also caught with Sheila. Zak's livid with Archie for what he's done but Elliot's adamant it's something he needs to deal with.

Encouraged by Nancy, Kris goes to the Roys' party with Zak only to discover that Archie's already there. Before Zak can lay into him, Elliot flies in, sending Archie crashing down onto a table. A fight ensues until Zak and Leila drag the pair apart. An upset Leila throws her sparring lovers out of the house.

It's the first anniversary of Tina's death and the McQueens are each dealing with the grief in their own way. Mercedes wants to forget all about it, while Michaela manages to convince her to join them at the memorial that Carmel has planned.

Completely oblivious as to what day it is, Theresa's made up to be let off her studying and is more than happy to join in. It becomes too much for Michaela, though, as it was her who organised Tina's funeral and the memories are too painful. The mourners, however, are interrupted by Jacqui's arrival. Seething, Jacqui expresses her astonishment that Myra wants them all to remember the day she chose which of her children should die.

Arguments ensue and even Theresa finds herself on the receiving end of Jacqui's sharp tongue. Carmel's hurt that her service has been ruined and flees in tears. Realising how much the memorial means to her, Myra, Mercedes and Michaela join her, offering to save her day by celebrating Tina's memory instead.

When Jacqui returns she's unable to believe the sight in front of her - Myra, Mercedes, Carmel and Michaela are all dancing around the living room, clearly a little tipsy. Myra gives Jacqui food for thought and realising that she needs to let the past go, Jacqui's soon dancing around the living room along with the rest of her family.
