Jennifer happily prepares lunch for Martyn, pleased to have something to take her mind off Peggy and Jack. Brian shows Martyn the farm and highlights their commitment to the community. Martyn says Brian's wasted his time. Brian was preaching to the converted. They should give Ed Grundy the tenancy. Brian is pleased with how it's gone and thanks Jennifer. He just needs to swing the board at the next meeting.
Matt and Lilian turn up at the magistrates' court. Lilian reminds him this is only a formality. Afterwards Lilian's relieved when the hearing's over. They're interrupted by Stephen Chalkman.
Chalkman tells them how nice it is to see them. Matt has nothing to say to Chalkman; what's done is done. Chalkman warns Matt that if the judge is looking to make an example of someone in these difficult times, it isn't going to be him.
Later, Matt doesn't feel like eating, worrying Chalkman's defence will lay the blame on him. Matt tells Lilian he's so happy to have her back. Lilian says the past few months have made them stronger. Matt asks if they're strong enough. How long will she wait for him? How long before it all gets too much again?
