Jill is going to help Lily make Elizabeth a French gateau, as a surprise for her birthday.
At the shop, Lynda reports that the Borchester Echo has quite a balanced piece on the dairy application. Lynda tells Ruth and Jill about Leonie and James, but it's all round the village anyway, thanks to Susan.
Over tea, Elizabeth tells Jill that business is down at Lower Loxley, but it could be a lot worse. And Lily's French has improved since her trip to Paris. She's enjoying winding Freddie up about eating horse (which she didn't actually do).
Leonie's making a nuisance of herself at Ambridge Hall. On Lynda's instruction, Robert talks to Leonie, who accuses him of caring more about the guests than about her. Robert asks her to observe some basic rules.
Lynda's adamant that Leonie can't just loaf about indefinitely. She tells a tearful Leonie to put her traumatic experience behind her, but Leonie feels that nobody wants her. Robert blames himself for leaving the family years ago. Then Leonie announces that she'd like her father to hire a van tomorrow so that she can collect her belongings from James's flat. She's going back to London to stay at her friend Maxine's.
