Sid's unhappy when he finds Jolene ironing Wayne's shirt, and wants to know when Wayne is going. Jolene assures Sid that Wayne is looking for somewhere to live. But Sid has had enough and accuses Jolene of using Fallon as an excuse to keep Wayne there.

Lilian overhears them arguing. Jolene thinks that Sid's being impossible. Having noticed Jolene and Wayne's closeness, Lilian reminds Jolene that Sid is jealous because he loves her. Jolene admits she enjoys Wayne's company but insists her efforts are to salvage Fallon's relationship with him.
Lynda's pleased to see Jill out walking - now she can tell Adam that Jill uses the path. But this is actually Jill's first time there.

Back from Stoneleigh, David tells Ruth that he was surprised to find Brookfield had a soil compaction problem. He's going to organise a full soil analysis.

David's pleased with his birthday presents. He's happy they're having a quiet family meal but knows there's a surprise ahead because the freezer's empty. Jill must be cooking! David's surprised when Ruth, Jill and the kids blindfold him, whisking him away for a surprise family gathering at Lower Loxley. It's a wonderful surprise and David thinks he's going to like being 50.
