Brian tells Alice about his plan to go to Ireland. If Jennifer's ok about him going, then it's ok with Alice too. It's clear how much she's matured, especially when she graciously accepts a loan to cover her university costs.
Jazzer interrogates Ed about Fallon but he's really fishing about Emma, and tries to stop Ed going to the Bull.
Usha receives another letter, at home. It's vicious and threatening. She tells Alan that she intends to confront Shula. Usha corners her at a bad time, with people all around, but doesn't care. Why should she worry about Shula's reputation? Shula tries desperately to explain but insists she's not the only one with reservations - Usha's family have their own feelings. Shocked that Shula repeats something Alan told her in confidence, Usha believes it's pure racism, which Shula emphatically denies. Usha tells Shula she holds her responsible for the letters. Shula insists she has nothing personal against Usha but Usha reminds her of Richard and warns her that she'll make sure everyone knows what Shula said to Ross. If anything happens to Usha, then Shula and everyone else will know the part she played. She hopes Shula's proud of herself.
