Lynda tries to hurry Leonie and Caz along to see the Christmas lights switch-on but when Robert arrives with a Christmas tree, divisive Leonie suggests they decorate their tree instead. Lynda leaves them to it. She'll catch up with Robert at Mike's party.

Leonie warns Caz not to let Lynda influence the way she brings up Oscar. Caz agrees that Lynda's a bit scary and Leonie questions what she knows about being a parent.

Vicky's really pleased with the banners and posters of Mike all around the village but Mike's customers have been ribbing him. She's assembled loads of photos at the Bull but Robert notes there's only one of Mike with Betty.

Susan thinks Jolene's done Vicky proud with the decorations. She wonders if she and Sid would consider having the post office in the pub if the community shop idea fell through. It's been done in other villages. Jolene says she'll think about it.

Robert notes how much joy Vicky's bought into Mike's life. Lynda thinks Oscar's bought just as much into theirs. Mike leads Vicky to the dance floor. Sensing Lynda's dread at the thought of saying goodbye to Oscar, Robert whisks her off to the dance floor too.
