Jill and Ruth are in the Brookfield orchard, inspecting a damaged hive. Jill's so upset. Ruth asks what Jill thinks about Shula leaving St Stephen's. Jill can't believe this - she had no idea. She goes to see Shula, and tries to persuade her otherwise. If she must leave St Stephen's, maybe time away will help her realise how much she misses it.

Shula phones Neil, to tell him she won't be ringing any more. Tony appears to talk to Neil about the flat. But he's stopped in his tracks by Neil who tells him they've decided Chris won't be moving in. Neil tells him not to tell Chris what's happened. Tony reassures him, telling him he couldn't be happier about it.

Lilian finds Stephen Chalkman on her doorstep, looking for Matt. She tells him Matt's in London, so Chalky goes to leave. Lilian says his trip shouldn't be wasted and invites him for coffee. He tells Lilian he's got to talk business with Matt. She tells him she's worried: Matt's very stressed. Chalky agrees. Maybe Matt should go on holiday? Lilian thinks this is a brilliant idea. Chalky says he'll look after the business. Lilian's grateful. She'll drag Matt away on holiday whether he likes it or not.

Episode written by Tim Stimpson.
