Christopher has been taking his farrier exam today. He goes to the pub to celebrate afterwards and forgets ringing practice. Emma's helping her mum close up the shop when Jazzer comes in for some fags. Susan reopens the till to serve him, and there's an awkward moment when Emma asks him how Ed is.

Susan serves up a nice meal for Chris and they all go off to the pub. Jazzer is there too, and he takes Emma on one side. They have a row. Emma can't understand why Jazzer is so aggressive, when all she is doing is asking after Ed. But Jazzer thinks she only cares about herself. Emma thinks he's one to talk; after all, he nearly killed himself with ketamine. Jazzer counters that he only hurt himself. Emma has wrecked two people's lives - three if you count George. Emma is hurt, and passionately declares that he has been given a second chance - doesn't she deserve one too?

Back in the pub, all is jollity, as they prepare for the fete - and the tug-of-war. Mike and Neil are each convinced their team is heading for victory.
