Pat's efforts to persuade Rosie that Sam will be taken away from her fall on deaf ears. She says she will kill herself if they take her baby away. Dr Weissman is called in to see her, but Vera has nastily hinted that if the authorities think she is unstable they will take Sam away. As a result, she acts very calm when she sees the doc, meaning he cannot recommend reversing the Department's ruling, so Sam is handed over to foster parents in front of her. Ros refuses to see Dr Weissman and plead temporary insanity in court, thinking she will get off. She is brought back from her trial in a terrible state, having been sentenced to life. Alice tells Karen she won't be coming back to see Doreen as it is getting too hard and gives her a goodbye present of perfume. Dor realises it is the same perfume her mother used to wear and works out who Alice is at last.
