Roy tells Hayley that Will's agreed to be Abbie's godfather, but only if Emma and Ed aren't at the church or the party afterwards. This is a dilemma for Hayley; she and Emma are close. After some discussion, Roy and Hayley decide to agree to Will's request. Emma will understand.

Alice is looking forward to the Bestival music festival and gives Eddie the names of some of the bands appearing, which he later proudly reports rather inaccurately to Nigel.

Pat tells Joe they've been given the go-ahead to buy the Bridge Farm freehold. Joe bets she's delighted. It's not much fun being at the mercy of Borchester Land, and there's nothing like owning your own patch.

When Eddie gets home after another busy day redeeming Joe's IOU's for his own wares, Joe finds his gratitude misplaced when his son expects favours in kind in return. Eddie demands tea and cake. Wily Joe feeds him Sabrina Thwaite's dubious cake and tells Eddie he's breaking the rules by swapping commercial items. If he carries on, Joe will shop him for tax evasion. And what's more, if Eddie wants a cup of tea, he can make it himself.
