Jazzer and Hannah are putting their new pig-weighing system together. Tom appears and Hannah explains the scheme. Jazzer can't believe he isn't more enthusiastic. Tom says the pigs will have smaller pens, although this mightn't matter. And it's good creative thinking - he'll stand them a pint.

Brian sends Adrian the student home with the flu, and takes over his lambing shift. Later, in the lambing shed, Brian's getting tired. Eddie should have taken over by now, but isn't answering his phone.

Hannah and Jazzer wait for Tom in the Bull. Jazzer asks if she's got plans for Thursday - there's an electro night in Felpersham.

Tom's on his way to the Bull, and notices Eddie's van stuck in the mud. He helps Eddie pull it out. Eddie says he should be at Home Farm but there's no phone signal for him to explain.

Eddie follows Tom into the Bull with Tom's phone, which he'd left in his van. Tom's phone rings - it's Brian, asking if he's seen Eddie. Tom tells him they're in the Bull. Brian's furious.

Eddie arrives to take over, late, and Brian jumps to conclusions. Eddie tells him no-one speaks to him like that. He's on his own.
