Jack's excited to learn that it's Christmas. Jack loves Christmas, and Peggy's touched when he tells her he loves her too.

After a family meal at Grey Gables, Jennifer, Alice and Peggy chat together while Alice waits for Chris. Jack's in a world of his own and reminisces about Christmases past, believing he still owns Grey Gables. Jennifer remarks that Matt seems clingy with Lilian, in sharp contrast to how he was at Christine's drinks do earlier in the week. Meanwhile, Jack wanders off. They find him in Caroline's office - which he thinks is still his.

Joe's pleased to receive a phone call from Mildred, and Eddie's also enjoying Christmas. Clarrie wishes Joe wasn't off to see Alf later but is looking forward to Edward and Emma arriving, and the whole family being there for tea. But Clarrie's disappointed. Edward turns up alone and wants to get straight off to take George to Susan and Neil's. Eddie doesn't want it to spoil the day. Once Will has taken Joe off to Gloucester, he thinks he and Clarrie should make the most of Christmas night.
