Jennifer is very concerned about Lilian, who is still not speaking to her. She asks Adam to see if he can intervene, and he promises to try. On his way, he makes a point of speaking to David about the cricket. Adam isn't happy with the way the team are shaping up this season. He thinks it's all too friendly and they ought to get a bit more competitive. David isn't sure. After all, the cricket is supposed to be fun. But Adam thinks that as captain, Alistair should sharpen things up.
When Adam calls on Lilian he finds her extremely worried about Matt, who keeps disappearing without telling her where he's going, and won't talk to her. She feels very lonely. Adam tells her that Jennifer would love to be more of a support, but Lilian gives the idea short shrift.
Tom meets Brenda after her exam. She's very concerned about Vicky, who it appears is coming to the engagement meal tomorrow. She's finding it hard seeing her Dad so besotted with someone Brenda doesn't really like. Tom distracts her by stopping outside a jewellers, then taking her in and buying her a beautiful sapphire engagement ring.
