Later, Martyn tells Brian what Justin thinks and that Brian needs to convince him that Berrow has a future. Brian asks for a couple of weeks to get his case together so he can expose Justin as a man without vision. But it takes work keeping it all going. They agree to carrying on mediation to sort out their finances. When Jazzer mentions that Alice is lonely, Tracy agrees to invite her round sometime. Later Tracy admits that no-one in the village wants to play.
Pip shows Stella around the bungalow. When Stella says she was disappointed yesterday when Pip said it was already let, Pip says it was her mistake. Stella can really imagine living there. Pip warms to Stella and reminisces about her time in the bungalow as a child. Stella says she knows they got off to a bad start over the sheep. She screams when she comes across what she thinks is black magic in the attic; a string of bird corpses. She suggests an engineer who can fix it at no cost; he owes her a favour.
Pip helps Rex pack up the bungalow. She shares her frustration about her parents dragging their heels over the herd expansion. Pip says she and Rosie will really miss him, but he guarantees Rosie will love his new home. Chelsea wishes her teachers had been more like Jim. Jim remarks those days are behind him. Alice returned Martha to Chris last night, which she admits to Rex felt strange.
Alice sympathises; Kate would be a nightmare to work with. Inspired Rex goes for it. She has Martha with her, who acts as an ice breaker while Roisin eases in to asking Alice about her circumstances. Alice declares the divorce her fault; she wants everything settled as quickly and easily as possible. Roisin points out gently that Alice has rights, and needs to be comfortable with childcare, custody and any financial settlement.
She recommends mediation. Roisin assures her that no-one will apportion blame. Peggy and Kate visit the rewilding office. Rex listens reluctantly as Kate points out various shortcomings of the site, and makes suggestions for improvements to the scheme. Pitch presented, Kate asks what her chances are. Rex points out the importance of developing wildlife habitats rather than increasing visitor numbers.
Rex concedes that one or two of her ideas are good, but he needs to do things by the book. Alice is still so unpredictable it might push Chris to demand more. Jazzer has a massive favour to ask of Jim. Tracy and Chelsea need somewhere to stay while the boiler at No.
Given the alternative scenario of playing host to Bert, Gary and Brad, Jim agrees to the request. He has a few house rules; Chelsea takes a dim view of having to be up before 7. Tracy offers Jim payment, which he refuses. Amy thinks the conversation starter cards contain some quite personal questions, and she and Alice pledge to avoid the likes of Cecil Jackson if they possibly can.
Rex has just come away from Sabrina Thwaite, and he and Amy share outlandish stories. She was really hoping Amy would meet someone tonight. Kate readily agrees with this view. Rewilding Ambridge faces similar challenges to the ones she successfully overcame with Spiritual Home. Peggy asks her to expand, and Kate conveys some of her ideas. Tracy emphasises how much Jazzer wanted everyone to have a good Christmas, and Jim twigs that this is why Jazzer fell behind with his rent.
He thanks Tracy — he should have realised and given Jazzer the benefit of the doubt. Tracy counters that Jazzer really needs to learn to budget better. He wants to offer Chris one of the holiday cottages, until the divorce is settled.
Phoebe breaks her job news to busy Rex. Later she takes some handmade blankets planned for Wren over to Natasha for her babies. Natasha is won over. Chris invites Amy for a takeaway as a thank you for her understanding. After dinner and wine Amy comments that Chris seems much better. He admits there was a point recently when he was struggling and felt like an awful father.
She affirms all the things he has going for him, including being a good looking man — as a friend. Amy reports to Fallon how much better Chris seems. Chris is grateful, and apologises for his rudeness when she last visited. Amy brushes it aside but Chris feels bad. Amy accepts his apology and suggests they move on. Chris admits to still missing Martha like a physical pain.
He finally feels ready to watch the video of her that Amy had tried to show him last week. Tom for his part feels equally to blame for handling it badly. He tells Kirsty he intends to visit the Remembrance Garden where Wren is, and they agree to go together. In the end it was hard, but really amazing. When Tom gets home he shares with Natasha how brilliant it was to be at the Garden, and they hug. Phoebe reports back to her mum that they need to consider a suitable candidate to take over.
Kate agrees it should be someone passionate, who gets on with Rex. As Jake prepares to go with Chelsea to a film, Mia continues to warn him off. Chelsea disabuses him of this. Sad Jake thanks her. After all, Hazel knows about the pregnancy and is a loose cannon.
He admits he finds the loss of Wren, their son, too much to talk about. She starts to explain her role as Director of Business development for an eco start-up, but as her mum continues to talk relationships Phoebe gives up — Kate makes it too hard for her to tell her anything. Chris rings Alice for an update on Martha. He still sounds rough, and Alice reassures him. Alice confesses to Amy and Fallon she finally feels like a proper mum, and the best person to be looking after her daughter, apart from Chris.
Alice makes her realise how ridiculous that sounds. Susan counsels him not to rush things or stress about Alice, who has Brian and Jennifer keeping an eye on her. Chris asks if Susan might call on Alice. They agree it must be hard for Chris missing Martha so much. Alice asks when Susan will take Martha to visit Chris, but Susan has a better idea, and later Alice visits the flat herself with Martha.
Chris is very happy to see his little girl. Roy confides to Kate that Phoebe seems edgy. Kate informs him Phoebe has a new boyfriend, Salil. Roy remembers him from Oxford but thought they were just mates. She approaches Phoebe with a request: her friend Burdock, the conference organiser, wants Phoebe and Rex to give a talk on rewilding.
Phoebe apologises. Roy tentatively asks about Salil, which upsets Phoebe. She confides that her mum has it wrong. And how is she ever going to break it to her mum? This puts Jolene off. Speed dating only appeals to people who are available. Ian explains their idea involves people moving tables as with speed dating, but it would provide an opportunity to have a laugh with different people, not necessarily to find a new partner.
As Ian and Susan elaborate, Kenton and Jolene are convinced. Alice is struggling with unhappy Martha, and is pleased when Jennifer calls in and offers help. Later Jennifer returns to find Alice singing to sleeping Martha. Alice is pleased for Phoebe, and hopes it works out.
Ian admits to Adam he was wrong about Susan. Adam attempts to warm Susan up with some conversation openers, pointing out the two of them have never really actually had a conversation. Susan joins in and soon the two are laughing and swapping village gossip. Susan shyly declines. Understanding Alice affirms that as the only farmer on the BL board, they need to trust his judgement on the future of the pig unit.
He reassures her she has his support. She and Brian agree you never stop worrying about your children. Later Alice invites them round for supper, admitting she wanted some company. Alistair says he had the help of two very capable farmers — Pip and Josh. Beth says that Josh thought he was great with their parents after the accident. Leonard buys everyone a take-away for dinner — after the trauma of this week, he wants to spoil everyone. Ruth moots a return to work next week - she'll take it slowly, but Jill says no she won't and Leonard reckons Pip and Josh are more than capable of keeping the farm ticking over.
Initially puzzled by what Ruth means, Leonard feels terrible when it dawns on him what Jill might be thinking. Shula mentions that the car crash brought back everything with Mark, and David reflects that he and Ruth were really lucky. Kenton and Elizabeth ask who David thinks will take on the farm in the future between Pip and Josh — or even both?
At the end of the evening, and as Shula and Elizabeth jokingly gloat over winning the game, David says it was just what he needed. Pip and Josh are really concerned when a cow-in-calf slips and damages her hip. Relieved and thankful, they head off to share the news with David and Ruth.
Despite still feeling sore and nursing their injuries, they both admit they would rather be helping Pip out on the farm, in the cold and rain, than be stuck indoors — despite being waited on hand and foot by Leonard and Jill. David advises Ruth to relax; they need to trust Pip and Josh to look after things.
Beth becomes defensive and Jill apologises. Iris invites him over to look at her bonsais whenever he wants. Ben takes care of them and hears that they hit a deer. They insist that Ben goes in for his first day of his nursing placement. After dropping Rosie at nursery, Jill broods on not being woken up with Leonard. In bed David and Ruth consider how the farm will cope without them even with some things rearranged. Ruth tells him not to worry — they have no choice but to rest. Unable to hug because of their injuries, they hold hands and Ruth tells David she loves him.
Pip wonders how they are going to cope with everything that needs doing on the farm this week. They work out what are the current top priorities. They share their concern about seeing their parents so badly injured. Pip recommends Josh first gets Leonard to make him breakfast.
In the Brookfield kitchen Leonard reassures Josh that he and Pip are already getting things sorted between them. Pip gets stressed thinking about how much there is to do tomorrow. In heavy rain, Pip tries to clear a blocked drain. Josh tries to encourage her to leave it but they only descend into a row over who works more. Their only option is to fess up to their parents. At Vince's party. Elizabeth comes across Ruth and David having a tour with Iris.
They swap notes on how their grown-up children argue with one another. Later, fresh off the dance floor, David is surprised to find himself having a good time. Ruth wonders which of their children will take over the farm from them. As he drives him and Ruth home, David suggests they host a party at Brookfield.
Then, suddenly, they crash. David calls out to Ruth who can only groan in reply. Later, Jolene checks on resting Kenton. Harrison catches Alice at the shop, confessing he's missed her. Harrison calls in at The Nest. Chris has found a torn piece of a photo from the wedding album Alice destroyed. He helps Chris pack a couple of boxes and advises him to keep the piece of photo from the wedding album.
Jolene and Kenton are wary of Tracy since she turned out to be a double agent with the ReBulls campaign. Jolene and Kenton like the sound of it at first, but as they dig into the details Tracy and Jazzer get increasingly annoyed with one another and end up arguing.
This puts an end to their idea being considered. Later Chris apologises to Tom for being so pushy earlier. They chat about work and then Tom tells Chris that Natasha is pregnant with twins. Chris shares what he loves about parenting and what he finds tough. The conversation turns to his split with Alice.
With his experience of a complicated ending with Kirsty, Tom reckons a completely clean break is what Chris needs. Phoebe and Lily moan about their respective occupations. The mood deflates when Phoebe unthinkingly asks Alice about her problems. Alice thanks Phoebe and Lily for helping her get away from Ambridge for the evening. He pitches his Living Board Game concept.
They struggle to see the main aim of the game and get hung up on the finer details. Losing his patience, Kenton thanks Leonard for coming but rules out his idea. Chris wants to meet on Wednesday regarding their divorce. Alice would a love a night out to forget her troubles.
Phoebe promises to sort it. Phoebe phones Lily for some advice but catches her at a bad moment and Lily moans about how bored she is with her job. They agree they could have another think. Jolene tries to reassure Fallon but fears it could lead to the end of their relationship. Problem solved! Tracy points out he was far too generous with Christmas presents. He even got Tracy two presents: a necklace and an oven.
Tracy offers to help Jazzer with his accounts and gives him a notebook to write down his spending. Jazzer reluctantly agrees to give it a go. Later, Fallon tries to understand how Harrison is feeling about not being baptised.
He wonders about perhaps doing it now, which Fallon finds funny. After all Betty died from a heart attack. You have to grab life and see where it takes you. Later having packed his bag to leave, Mike reassures his son. Roy was spot on — and Mike wants to be around for Bethany and Vicky. Peggy sympathises and recommends she finds somewhere more suitable to live. Tony pops in and is wrongfooted to find Hazel there.
Josh is rumbled as Mike declares Josh told him he was moving in. Pip and Josh have a sibling showdown, and Mike intervenes. Ashamed, the pair apologise. When Josh later considers throwing in the towel and giving up on the tree planting, Pip buoys him up. Planting trees would really help cut net emissions, and benefit Brookfield in other ways. She calls Brian. Phoebe suggests Roy just talks to Vicky to find out the truth.
Roy discovers that Mike is actually supposed to be doing a Couch to 5K programme which has been prescribed because he is pre-diabetic. Mike refuses to be spoken to like a child and heads out for his planned curry. They tell themselves it will all be fine.
Meanwhile, at Bridge Farm Tony tries to distract Pat with her birthday cards. She opens one from Hazel who has bought Pat a place on a cheese tasting workshop. Tom and Natasha return and share the good news that both are doing well. Tony and Pat are over the moon. Thoughtful Stella offers to give Alice a couple of mornings a week on a voluntary basis.
Brian thanks her. Tony advises her not to make a fuss on her special day. This delays Tom from clearing away his tools and Natasha trips over them. Pat feels terrible. Lily and Susan are among the winners, and Lynda gets singled out for praise for her production as Alan reads out a fulsome message from the Bishop.
She raises a glass and they all drink a toast to Ambridge. Amy agrees — and there may be more tests but Alice will learn to avoid the triggers. Alice can see that dog walking is suiting Amy. She muses that she needs something more to do herself — she has way too much time on her hands.
She shares the thought with her mum, suggesting to Jennifer that she might go back to work. Jennifer counters that work is stressful, and stress is to be avoided. But Alice reckons not being busy is even more stressful for her. She wants to use her brain. She wonders about part time work at Home Farm. Jennifer promises to discuss it with Brian. Alice believes it could be what she needs to get her life back on track.
Amy finds cold Alice on a bench at the playground. Alice has texted her for help. And whatever her buddy Lisa said to her during the night has worked. They have to decide what to do next. Alice explains the trigger had been Chris asking for a divorce. Amy counters that stopping herself is a colossal milestone for Alice. Her coping strategies worked, no matter how tempted she was and how natural it felt. She needs to learn now how to deal with the stress triggers. Amy replies that it was all Alice.
As they smash the empty bottles into the bin, Alice resolves to keep hold of the real Alice, and make it work. Adam promises to stay out of the way and act as background support. The client, Lorraine, is impressed with the taste and texture of the yoghurt, and with the set up as a whole. Experienced manager Adam steps in and takes over.
Adam laughs that the main thing is she loved the product. Lilian and Alice chat in the tackroom after a ride. He wants their divorce done as soon as possible. He needs Alice to think about citing some instances of unreasonable behaviour.
He leaves, asking Lilian to look after Alice. As he prepares the first room at the bungalow, Josh arrives with some bold replacement paint choices. Mike tucks in gratefully to the cupcakes Josh has brought along from Jill. Susan berates Mike for having lured Neil out drinking on a work night earlier in the week.
They banter for a while before Susan good-naturedly agrees to Mike taking the last sausage roll. And now they can all finally get back to life as they know it. Chris and Alice are at the Lower Loxley arboretum with Martha.
As they reminisce about happier times Chris goes in for a kiss. Shocked Alice pulls back and is wrongfooted. Chris maintains Martha deserves to have them both, in a proper family like before. Chris believes they still make a great team. Alice reiterates that she needs all her energy to focus on herself at the moment. Alice gently apologises. They say goodbye and distraught Chris closes the door on Alice.

They bump into Usha and Ruth introduces her and Stella. Usha asks if Ruth would like to come to a salsa class this evening and Ruth extends the invite to Stella. Flustered Ruth joins them, feeling the least glamourous of the three.
Jennifer also tells Alice how well she did while Kate drank too much alcohol. Just before Ruairi leaves Alice checks he really meant what he said yesterday. When Alice asks what their parents will think, Ruairi twists the knife.
How could she cause them even more pain? And whose side will they take? On her return from dropping Ruairi at the station, Jennifer senses something up with Alice. Adam thanks Ruairi for his generosity with his gifts. Alice opens a travel voucher from Ruairi. He says she can use it to get a long way from Ambridge.
He says he will never forgive her and that his behaviour in front of the rest of the family is all an act. Harrison is keen to know more about what the Bible says about Jesus. Harrison tells relieved Kirsty that Alan has helped him see he can portray Jesus. Being part of The Ambridge Mystery Plays has made them both think about what they believe in. While they may not subscribe to a formal religion, Kirsty believes in the power of love and kindness while Harrison believes in trying to do the right thing.
Kirsty takes it as a sign that she and Harrison are doing something right. Ben is in awe of Ruairi going skiing over Christmas and then having an extra family Christmas being put on for him. Kirsty shows Harrison and Mike the cross for The Passion. Mike collects wood from the Bungalow for the cross repairs and gets chatting to Ruth about the future of the place now that Bert has died. Both Pip and Josh are lobbying Ruth and David for it to be their home.
Mike takes a look around and is happy to take on the work, it means he can extend his Ambridge visit. Jennifer is over the moon he is home while Alice shows her uncertainty about seeing Ruairi. Jennifer reassures her that she now has the opportunity to make amends. Alice joins them and apologises for her behaviour before going to rehab.
Ruairi chooses his words carefully in reply. In private with Jennifer, Ruairi apologises for not being in touch very much since leaving for university. When he admits to being homesick for an Aldridge Christmas Day, Jennifer insists nothing would give her more pleasure than hosting one for him. While out with Martha, Chris comes across Harrison taking a dip in the Am.
Harrison worries that it will be a disaster and Chris advises he tries out the cross before the full rehearsal. Clarrie, who believes the same, delivered festive food to the Vicarage and Susan goes to get more for Alan to take home. Alan catches Usha up with the performance of The Nativity. Usha has loved staying out of sight over Christmas. Alan is starting to feel uncomfortable about people believing that their marriage is over.
Susan is shocked to see her and Usha teases her about gossip being made out of thin air. Usha agrees to have Susan and Clarrie over for a meal to repay their culinary generosity. Putting the performances on has been a long road. Lynda thinks the best is yet to come. Join the cast of The Archers in a unique promenade production around Ambridge, telling the Christmas story with warmth, humour and festive cheer.

He also accepts he should have done more to enter into the Christmas spirit with her and Amy. Later, surprised Alan opens the door to Usha. As soon as she heard his message she decided to come home. She pleads for him not to cancel the plans Susan and Clarrie have made for him — she would love the quietest of Christmases. Kirsty tells her to stop panicking and reminds her that people are taking part out of love.
Lynda challenges Lily about her wobbly performance. Lily exclaims she was cold and twigs that Susan deliberately let her choose the flimsiest costumes. Lily will be fine with the horse. Lily tries to help Jazzer with his enunciation, suggesting some phrases he can use to improve his clarity. Alan helps clarify things for grateful Jazzer. Jazzer sympathises with bemused Alan and shares his experiences of being alone at Christmas.
Alan clears up the misunderstanding with Jazzer, and feels inspired to rewrite his speech. Susan praises Clarrie for all her hard work on the costumes. Clarrie warns Susan not to get any ideas about making late changes to her costume. Meanwhile Alice and Chris meet to discuss arrangements with Martha over Christmas. Alice gives Chris a pair of Christmas socks. Oliver finds Kirsty half-asleep at work.
Oliver tries to help her regain her motivation for the show. Hearing from Chris that Alan is alone over Christmas, Susan chews this information over with Clarrie as they work in the dairy. Susan feels terrible with Alan being so supportive of Alice and Chris recently. Later, Clarrie and Susan find Alan at St. Alan tries to turn down their offers but finds it impossible!
Clarrie keeps ignoring calls from Kirsty, who then texts to say she urgently needs to speak to her. Amy and Alice meet at a Christmas market in Birmingham, where Alice spots a reindeer decoration just like one her family had that Ruairi named Randal. Alice is looking forward to seeing Ruairi; she wants to make Christmas special for him. Alice shows her Randal the reindeer, and is pleased that Jennifer also remembers him. Alice is saddened by this.
She was looking forward to making amends for what she said to him while she was drunk. Jennifer assures Alice that he knows she loves him, and he loves her too. Usha agrees to listen to him rehearse in return for not going to an after service drinks with him.
Lynda and Kirsty celebrate regaining Brookfield for the Mystery Plays. And when they filled in Ruth, she was hugely apologetic for jumping to the wrong conclusion last week. Energised by this success they turn their efforts to getting costumes made for all the additional extras. Once again Lynda delegates to Kirsty — she needs to tell Clarrie about the extra effort this will require.
Ruth encourages her to get involved — the whole production is a bit mad but a good laugh as well. Lynda presses Kirsty to stand down the additional extras but Kirsty resists. Kirsty and Lynda congratulate Tracy on providing the support Blake needed. In The Bull, Ruth tells Stella the carbon audit meeting went well but now she has a new problem.
Lynda confirms with them both that they can be extras. But when she mentions the cows, Ruth instantly accuses her of contacting the animal charity. Lynda denies this — though she can see why someone would do that. This is the final straw for Ruth. Will promises to speak to Mia. Harrison learns from Kirsty that Lynda wants him to wear a loin cloth while playing Jesus. Their conversation returns to Blake. Kirsty hopes his information will lead to more traffickers being caught. He also wants her to come with him to apologise to Stella and is surprised when Mia happily agrees.
Stella compliments Will on his dog Kai. On their way back Mia wonders about Stella, and tells Will that she thinks Stella likes him. With Natasha visiting her parents he wants to get the move done before her return. When Tom starts bringing round belongings, Tony and Pat are stunned at the amount.
With the move proving stressful, Pat worries what actually living with Tom and Natasha will be like. Tom opens up over his fear about losing the baby, as he and Kirsty did. Tony consoles Tom and reassures him that their baby is going to be fine. Lynda walks in on their conversation and is horrified to learn Kirsty has been recruiting more extras. She wants Kirsty to tell them all that they are no longer required, and when Pat rings, Lynda says Kirsty can start with her.
Kirsty thinks about sacking her but then decides against it. Martyn Gibson alerts Will to Mia protesting at the shoot. He insists Will gets rid of her right away. But when Will tries to get her to leave, Mia stands her ground. With Martyn ready to report Mia to the police, Stella steps in and offers to speak to her. Mia passionately expresses her stance to Stella who gently opposes her. Stella thanks her for listening and compliments her on her placard. When he finally unwraps it he learns Natasha is pregnant.
Over lunch at Bridge Farm Tom asks his parents if he and Natasha can move in with them. Pat and Tony congratulate the couple and promise to keep the news to themselves. Chelsea answers the door to Blake. Tracy invites him in for lunch.
Blake is impressed with the Horrobin family dynamic; he gets the impression they are all really close. Jazzer points out that they do all argue, particularly Brad and Chelsea. A card comes through the letterbox. Blake is touched. They celebrate their wedding anniversary which went unnoticed by their son and daughter-in-law.
They argue about her offer to take on more debt to cover a deposit. Hazel asks Pat and Tony to help explain her situation to Tom and Natasha. Pat offers to do what she can. When Pat explains the situation with Susan to Fallon, Fallon starts to feel guilty. She goes round to the flat and finds Natasha sitting outside, feeling low.
Fallon confesses that it was she who accidentally tipped Hazel off. Fallon congratulates her. What if the cast are upstaged by an incontinent animal? Lynda dismisses this. Natasha bursts into the shop with an accusation. Susan protests her innocence, but Natasha is too upset about losing her home to listen.
What about her job? They take the opportunity for a bit of revenge, insisting that baffled Hazel chooses her own turkey. Then Eddie offers her the chance to kill it herself. Eventually he puts her out of her misery, reminding her that she evicted the Grundys after the flood. Joe would have been proud of them today. Susan intends to enter leading a white charger.
She confronts Johnny in the milking parlour, where to her alarm a cow deposits on her. She reveals to Tony and Johnny that this has given her second thoughts about leading a horse in the Mysteries. She and animals simply do not mix. At the Tearoom, Hazel looks forward to becoming a regular customer. Fallon recalls how Hazel evicted her from the flat above the shop, and tries to get Hazel to sympathise with Tom and Natasha. Natasha works so hard already, often into the night, and the shop frequently signs for Summer Orchard deliveries.
Hazel realises that this will allow her to invoke a clause in their lease stating the flat must not be used for commercial purposes. Hazel advises him to study his tenancy agreement before casting her as Scrooge. Natasha's determined to fight back. Kirsty suggests Susan puts forward her idea for Lily to ride in instead to Lynda.
He takes a picture, hairnets and all, of all three of them, and hilarity ensues. Kirsty takes the opportunity to ask Johnny to be an extra, but he declines. He takes another snap of Susan connecting some yoghurt pipe equipment, which she hates. She demands that Johnny deletes it. As they prepare for the arrival of Hazel at the flat, Tom warns Natasha she takes no prisoners. They need to be on their best behaviour. After some more flattery Hazel drops her news.
Tom and Natasha have two months in which to vacate. They chat, with Hazel reminiscing about her childhood days there. They discuss Christmas gifts for customers, and decide to ask Johnny to take a photo for the Bridge Farm Christmas card.
All they can do is wait for the dust to settle. Tom gets a text from Hazel. She wants to visit them tomorrow. They find a few likely candidates, but none that matches up to Benjamin for charisma and reliability.
She convinces Eddie to reconvene at the weekend. She feels Jack would be thrilled, and she thoroughly approves of his legacy. She gets emotional and Rex takes her for a restorative cup of tea. Hating it and embarrassed, Mia lashes out with a comment too far. Chelsea points out her part in getting Blake to talk to the police, and accuses Mia of being too quick to judge others. Mia bursts into tears. Lynda takes her aside and apologises for her brusqueness. She wishes she was more like Lynda.
Lynda galvanises Mia, giving her some tried and trusted Snell tips on fighting for a cause. Blake opens up to Harrison, with an advocate, Yvonne, for support. The disturbing and traumatic recollections distress Blake. They encourage Blake to consider his own future options. She alarms even sceptical Kate when she almost faints. She explains she has Long Covid, and that the seriousness of her illness took her by surprise.
Kate remains suspicious of the new, humble Hazel, and believes her change in behaviour and attitude is purely manipulative. Kate gives way and Hazel accepts. Eddie arrives buoyed up from deputising for Lynda at rehearsals. Working the drives is what he enjoys. Lynda was banking on him as key to the piece. When Robert insists, she reveals bad hair. Robert tries to mollify her to no avail. He no longer wants to visit Philip, who he now sees as a liar. He wants to help, and tell his story, but only to Harrison, no-one else.
Harrison will see what he can do. And when Harrison has to duck out, Lynda finds it hard to let go of the reins. Eventually Eddie persuades her she can safely leave and enjoy her occasion — rehearsals are safe in his hands. After some small talk Peggy asks Hazel to cut to the chase — what does she want?
They have to give her a second chance. Chelsea visits Blake at The Elms, and shows him an interview in the Borchester Echo; someone else has been found who worked for Philip Moss. Blake reserves judgement, unable to believe Philip would do this, but as Chelsea reads on it becomes apparent that Philip has put the blame for the Grey Gables explosion firmly with Blake.
But gradually the scales fall from his eyes and he sees the reality. Philip was always going to drop him in it, and split up the three lads. Shocked Chelsea encourages Blake to talk to someone who can help, and to trust them if he can. Meanwhile the dinner burns, so Jazzer heads to the shop for more supplies.
At the bus station in Borchester, Chelsea recognises Blake. She approaches him and apologises for hitting him while driving. She shares her chips and they get talking. Chelsea insists shivering Blake wears her coat. She assesses his appearance and lands on the idea of giving Blake a makeover. On seeing Jazzer, Blake rushes to leave, but Chelsea persuades him not to. Jazzer will take that. George made a GIF of Alan worse for wear. Ruth shows it to Alan, who rushes to Grange Farm and explains the situation to Ed.
As punishment, the Bishop has ordered Alan to give a keynote speech at a multi-faith charity fundraiser between Christmas and New Year. Oliver wonders aloud why the turkeys would choose to put themselves in danger of being eaten by a fox outside. Ed asks him to focus, they need to work quickly to round up all the escaped turkeys. Their attempts to catch them are haphazard but eventually they get them all back inside their enclosure.
Meanwhile, Will tries to persuade Mia to be a friend to Chelsea. Josh and Ruth assess the outwintering dairy cows. They seem well but the field is getting muddy. Josh updates Ruth about the archaeological assessment that has to be done before they plant any trees.
Ruth explains that the herd is perfectly fine. Lynda heads off but not before demanding that some plastic bale wrapping is removed from the hedge. At rehearsal, Mia makes Chelsea a tea and questions her ethics around make-up. Will reports to Jazzer that their plans to get them to be friends is working.
Meanwhile, Mia and Chelsea snap at one another but then fix smiles when they see Will and Jazzer looking over. At last, something they agree on. Quietly Lilian warns Chelsea that while Lynda appears fine underneath she is actually quite vulnerable. Lilian quickly jumps to her defence and Chelsea panics. Lilian accepts that Lynda does look amazing but when Chelsea invites her to take her seat she declines.
Jazzer seeks advice from Will about handling teenagers. Jim joins them but has no wisdom to share as Fiona and Alistair gave no trouble during their teens. It might just work, says Jim. After an early hiccup with the generator and some fairy lights, things get underway at the cider shed. A little too much in the case of vicar Alan, who gulps his down on an empty stomach, then breaks into song and begins to stumble his way through a trial run. Resourceful Eddie persuades reluctant Oliver to step in and take the ceremony, and finally all passes off without a hitch.
The after party goes with a swing, rounded off by Eddie springing a surprise trip to Paris on Clarrie. They reaffirm their love for one another as they say their goodbyes and prepare to set off in the Grundy limo. She apologises for her curtness yesterday.
