Rita is surprised when a parcel arrives containing Dennis's ashes and a note requesting she scatter them in Blackpool. Taking in the sad news of Dennis's death, she confides in Ken, who agrees to go with her.

Meanwhile, Geoff scuppers Alya's plans to take Yasmeen for a massage, telling Yasmeen that Emma is not available to be his assistant for Tianna's birthday party later. He forces a reluctant and claustrophobic Yasmeen to rehearse his 'crushed in a box' trick. When the trick doesn't go to plan at the party and Yasmeen panics, Geoff paints on a smile for the audience but makes it clear to Yasmeen that he is less than pleased. 

Elsewhere, Roy spots the fact that Nina has her big rucksack with her, but she disappears before he can quiz her further. Beth says that she caught Nina going through the factory bins. Roy is perplexed.

Later in the week, deciding a day trip is something everyone would enjoy, Jenny books a coach and invites lots of the residents to join them. Amy, Audrey, Carla, Eileen, Emma, Evelyn, Gail, Jenny, Ken, Mary, Nina, Sean, Tracy, Sally, Yasmeen and Rita, clutching Dennis's urn, set off for Blackpool.

The trip is not without incident, and as it starts to look as though they won't make it to Blackpool before nightfall, tensions rise. By the end of the trip, lives will have changed and one resident realises the time has come to leave the cobbles for pastures new.
