Ruth wants to get involved with the dairy campaign and suggests helping with Gray's leafleting project. The FWAG advisor arrives to put together an electronic map of Brookfield. David and Ruth quietly despair when Bert turns up and takes over. David and Ruth decide to pledge Brookfield for a farm visit for a primary school in the autumn.
Drained Brian is surprised to see Jennifer at the airport on his return from Dublin. Adam's annoyed when he finds out Brian hasn't mentioned anything to Jennifer about telling Alice and Debbie; he can't put it off any longer as it's Alice's last exam today.
Later Adam confronts Brian, brutally pointing out that Siobhan's dead and buried; this family needs him now. He threatens to tell Debbie if Brian doesn't talk to her soon. Brian apologises to Jennifer for going off the radar but Jennifer admits it was easier not knowing what was going on in Ireland anyway. They agree to tell Alice the following week when her exam celebrations are over. But Jennifer points out there's no need for Brian to put off telling Debbie any longer?
