Jill tells Shula that Phil is preoccupied with his latest hobby, building star pictures. Shula tells Jill that she feels uncomfortable when she sees Alan and wishes the whole business would blow over.

Shula apologises to Alan about her stupidity with the journalist, revealing that she has received shocking phones calls from racist customers. Alan defends Usha, saying that the past has come back to haunt her and her confidence has disappeared. Alan is annoyed that Shula betrayed his confidence with how Usha's family took the news of their engagement. He thought Shula was a friend as well as a colleague. He says she should think before speaking, leaving Shula clearly upset.

Adam tells Matt that it will cost around 60,000 pounds to connect their digester up to the mains! An urgent meeting is arranged. Matt tells Annabelle he's hoping to get information from Lilian about how Tony's intends to fight the planning application but Lilian's lips remain sealed. Adam arrives, explaining the high cost is because the grid requires a considerable upgrade to the local infrastructure. Annabelle thinks it's excessive and believes there's room for negotiation. She asks if Adam is prepared to leave it with her. He replies 'Err, yes. Yes, OK.'
