Hayley and Phoebe are out shopping when they meet Vicky. Hayley explains that Phoebe is worried about her approaching trip to South Africa, so Vicky agrees to try and talk to her since Hayley is struggling.
Phoebe tells Vicky that although she's looking forward to seeing Kate, she's going to miss celebrating Easter with everybody at home. Vicky cheers her up by suggesting that they buy a present for Phoebe's mum and dad, which Vicky will hide and then give to them at Easter on Phoebe's behalf.
It's the day of the inquest into Nigel's death. Elizabeth, Shula and David are all emotional. David must give evidence, and so gives a detailed account to the Coroner of what happened. However, reliving that night reawakens all his feelings of guilt about the accident, and about suggesting to Nigel that they go up on the roof in the first place. The Coroner returns a verdict of accidental death. While Elizabeth and Shula are relieved it's over, David struggles to cope.
Over the phone, Ruth tells David about the four cows that have been slaughtered. She assures him that it's case closed for Nigel's death, but David remains unconvinced.
