The power's finally back on at the market but Brenda's disappointed when Lilian wants her to stay in the office tomorrow.
The news about Rich is a bigger bombshell. Brenda knows how Helen adored John and that her problems stem from his accident. Tom can't understand why their parents are prepared to risk ruining all the progress she's made by trumping Henry, her greatest achievement. Brenda's worried about Tom coping too. He admits that it's spooked him. All his life he's tried to move out from under John's shadow, and now this.
Tony finally seems to make Pat see that she needs to stop being obsessed with Rich and concentrate on Tom and Helen, who need time to deal with the news. When Helen begs Pat not to phone Sharon, Pat promises she won't, not yet.
Lilian calls in on Tony and they discuss the new market. Although Tony's sick of Brian and Jennifer going on about this so-called legacy project, he agrees with Lilian that it's not in anyone's interests if the opening's a flop. Brian may be jetting off to the Maldives next week but Lilian acknowledges there are always problems waiting when you get back. Tony agrees that's true.
