Lilian reveals to Pat that Jolene is set to return to Ambridge next Wednesday. She won't decide where to scatter Sid's ashes until she's home. They discuss how difficult things must be for Kenton and Kathy, now Jaxx Bar has opened. They feel for Jamie too, who seems to be struggling to face reality.
Lilian's upbeat about her new property business, pointing out that it's a joint venture. Pat's surprised to learn that Lilian and Matt have taken Brenda on. Pat wastes no time in singing Brenda's praises, but Lilian is less effusive.
Meanwhile, Bert's on a guided bird walk at Arkwright Lake, where Kirsty is selling wildflowers to raise money for a new hide.
Over at Brookfield, Ruth helps David with weighing and selecting lambs for the abattoir. Josh is still editing Jill's cookery video and so far it's looking good. Pip interrupts with some big news. She intends to leave college to go travelling with Jude. She finally tells them about messing up two exams. David and Ruth try to make Pip consider her options before quitting, but she shocks them by admitting the deed is already done.
