Alistair is grateful when Shula takes Jim to the fracture clinic. Both Shula and Alistair are hopeful that their ordeal with Jim will soon be over - especially when Jim arrives and insists they leave for their appointment now: he insists on being punctual. Later, as Alistair treats a cow at Brookfield, he tells Ruth that he's optimistic that Jim will return home soon; a sentiment Ruth hears again from Shula in the shop.

Robert and Jason continue to be at loggerheads, with much discussion about their differing political and social views, and a lot of criticism of Robert's work from Jason. Later, Robert borrows the keys to the village hall from Shula, with a plan to return to work later in the evening.
