Emma's desperate to find somewhere to live. She drags Ed round to see Ruth, where Emma comes right out with it and asks if they can move into Rickyard Cottage. Ruth's taken aback but agrees to talk to David.
Matt assures Lilian she doesn't have to worry about him. He's got no regrets about last week and has got over the disappointment of his mother not wanting to see him.
Brian's pleased that Tom's sausages are doing well but thinks they should cut back on the pork meat sales and build up a market for other products such as premium bacon. Tom's not happy with the idea but Brian suggests he talks to Adam. Tom grits his teeth and agrees to do so.
Matt informs the Borchester Land meeting of a proposed rival anaerobic digester at Loxley Norton, which is about to tie up an agreement to handle waste from a major supermarket chain. Loxley Norton are looking for new partners. As there's no room in Borsetshire for two big AD plants, Matt thinks they should pull out of Ambridge Heat and Power and go in with Loxley Norton. It's time to face the facts. The Ambridge plant is dead in the water.
