In the small hours of the morning, Clarrie comes out with a cup of tea for Eddie, who is dealing with a difficult calving. Eddie apologises for the mess in the kitchen - he will clear it up. Clarrie is worried about the broken teapot, but Eddie says he'll get his friend Barry to fix it.

The calf is duly born, and they share a moment together. Clarrie knows that this is where Eddie belongs. It's what he should be doing, if there was any justice in the world.

In Costa Rica, Matt meets up with a British expat. Geoff is keen to organise them an apartment to rent. Lilian is appalled that Matt's taken it on from someone he doesn't know - and anyway, as far as she's concerned, it's money down the drain. They aren't staying.

Matt calls a taxi, and takes Lilian to see the apartment. Lilian is not enchanted. They've barely gone a few yards when a dog rushes at them behind a gate. Lilian is genuinely frightened. She phones Russell, to Matt's horror. Russell is clear. Matt absolutely must be back for the hearing. If he doesn't turn up, he really will be in deep trouble.
