At Ambridge Hall, Lynda is becoming increasingly excited about the party and working out the logistics, but is horrified when Robert interrupts to show her the llamas - someone has sprayed them pink!

Ruth calls on Elizabeth and insists they talk. She tries to make Elizabeth see how unreasonable she's been in changing Freddie and Lily's guardians, and how much she has hurt David. However, things become heated as Elizabeth refuses to change her behaviour and Ruth struggles to maintain her composure. Elizabeth reiterates that David is to blame for Nigel's death. When Ruth suggests she get some kind of counselling, Elizabeth is furious, telling Ruth to imagine it was David that had died. Counselling would do nothing to help.
