Archie's attentions turn to Janine
Aired Tuesday, Mar 3 2009 at 19:30 GMT on BBC One

Janine calls Peggy, pretending to be someone from a local charity who wants to make a donation to her election fund. An unwitting Peggy gladly accepts her offer and suggests they arrange some media coverage in the local paper. Billy spots Janine with a mystery envelope and confronts her about its contents. A coy Janine reveals that after her chat with Aunt Sal, she's planning to have a laugh at Peggy's expense. Later, Archie talks to Billy about his history with Janine and accuses him of being at her beck and call. When Billy leaves, Archie checks a drawer and sees that the address book has been returned. Archie realises that Billy's loyalties may not be as legitimate as he originally thought.

Later, locals and journalists gather in The Vic to see Peggy accept her election donation. However, when she opens the envelope, punters are shocked to see a raunchy picture of Peggy from the 1960s. Janine's pleased as punch to have evoked such a reaction from the crowd, before launching a vocal attack on Peggy about her hypocritical 'morality campaign'. Pat catches up with Janine and urges her to make amends with Peggy for Frank's sake. Deciding to take heed of Pat's advice, Janine apologises to Peggy and offers to be her campaign manager. She's no happy, though, when Peggy knocks her back.

Billy urges Janine to sweep her plans aside as he's adamant that Archie knows she's up to something. When Archie offers her a drink on the house, Janine's guard is raised. While Peggy accuses Pat of playing into Janine's hands, Archie turns up on Janine's doorstep, quickly puts his hand over her mouth and pushes her into the building. Intimidated, Janine tries to scream but Archie forces her against the wall and shushes her. Janine threatens to call the police, but Archie insists that she's got him wrong. Stroking her face, he claims that this could be the start of a beautiful relationship.
