Neil's doing a job for Alan, and is surprised to find Shula in church. Sensing she needs time to herself, he offers to come back later.

Susan wants to plan their silver wedding anniversary next month. Neil suggests a cosy night in with a take-away. Susan wishes he could be a bit more enthusiastic.

Kenton's concerned for Shula and is worried that Alistair took a night off from his Gamblers Anonymous meeting last week. Later, Kenton remembers why Ryan seemed familiar to him. He'd met him playing poker some time ago and recalls Ryan getting aggressive when he lost a large amount of money. Kenton wants to tell Alistair but Kathy doesn't agree. Ryan's probably sorting himself out, so Kenton should keep it to himself.

Tom doesn't think he can work with Brian any longer. He needs somebody who'll buy Brian out. Brenda suggests Matt Crawford. Tom reminds Brenda of the hell Matt's put his family through. Brenda knows what Matt's like, but insists he would make a good silent partner. The thought of Brian's face if Matt was to be his new business partner is a sweet sounding prospect. Tom begins to think Brenda might be right.
