Despite all their fears for Helen and the baby, Pat thinks things have turned out for the best. Helen's grateful that Henry's safe and healthy and Tony's besotted with his grandson. Clarrie remarks that babies often bring families together. Tony apologises to Pat for making life difficult during Helen's pregnancy. It wasn't until he thought he might lose Helen and her baby that he regretted his behaviour. He hopes he'll be able to make it up to her now. Pat thinks that the look on his face when he saw Henry for the first time was enough for Helen.

Jim's impressed with the way Shula has been so strong for her family, he can see why Alistair married her now, and even Kenton's shown true strength of character. Jim thinks that the Archers are quite a remarkable family.

As Eddie predicted, the latest scheme to sell grow your own mistletoe kits for a fiver doesn't go as well as Joe had planned. But Jim's done some research that might just turn their fortunes round. He's discovered that mistletoe was sacred to the druids, who had rituals to help make it grow. Joe's impressed and is eager to see the research.
