Ian finds Peggy in a desperate state. Jennifer's due and Jack's still wearing yesterday's clothes. He'd convinced himself that Peggy wouldn't give him any supper, so insisted on doing his own. Peggy couldn't stop him. He spent the night emptying every kitchen cupboard, making a terrible mess. Now Peggy's too exhausted to sort things out. Ian jumps into action and soon gets everything back to normal. Ian's concerned that Peggy needs regular help, but Jack's ok now and Peggy begs Ian to keep this to himself.

Eddie's helping David get Brookfield ready for the new grazing system. Eddie's not convinced the new regime will work but praises them for trying. They see Sid running with Usha, and he seems in a state.

Ruth later tells David that Sid's told Usha he can't coach her anymore, blaming his long working hours.

David's hoping the firework display will live up to expectations. With what he's spent, Ruth's sure it will. David and Kenton are in high spirits as they set it up.

Jack's happily watching the fireworks from his bedroom window. Peggy's relieved to see him so content and hopes there are more happy times like this to look forward to.
