Peggy's furious to discover that Glenda could contest Archie's will and sensing his mother's anger, Phil suggests that she be wary of Glenda. While talking to her mother, Roxy ponders that Ronnie will inherit everything and at that moment, Ronnie reveals that she won't be attending the will reading. Glenda, however, insists that she must attend in order to gain some closure on Archie's death. Ronnie's puzzled by her mother's comments and Glenda insists that she'll explain all after the reading. As the Mitchells prepare to head across the road to The Vic, Phil's taken aback when Peggy admits that she did love Archie, despite all his wrongdoings.

Billy meets Archie's solicitor Emma West outside the pub where she drops all of her paperwork and it starts flying around the Square. Inside, the Mitchells gather for the will reading and while Roxy silently questions Ronnie's change of heart, Peggy ponders Glenda's motives. An expectant Janine arrives but receives the cold shoulder from most of those in attendance. With everyone gathered, Billy begins reading Archie's last will and testament: Phil receives his father Eric's boxing trophy, £100,000 is held in trust for baby Amy and Ronnie's 'first surviving child' and Peggy is left a wedding photo. As Billy goes to read the last page, he notices that it's missing. While Ronnie's reeling from her father's spite beyond the grave, Emma and Phil track down the missing sheet.

Finally found, Billy goes on to finish the reading. Roxy and Ronnie receive an antique fountain pen and signet ring respectively, and the remainder of Archie's estate is bequeathed to…
