He wishes Amy could forgive Usha, but emotional Amy can't talk to him about it. She tells Alice she's still angry with Usha. They were so close; Usha was like a mum to her.

Alan finds Ruth clearing up glass on the yard. They discuss Amy, and Ruth tells him that it won't work to pressure Amy. She'll just need time to work it out. Alan thanks Ruth for her advice. He mentions that he spotted one of the farm gates open earlier, so he closed it. Ruth's grateful. When Alan's gone David tells Ruth the police are sending someone over. They agree they don't want the children knowing anything of the situation. Ruth feels happier once the police know everything, and David reminds her they need to get things in perspective. In lighter mood Ruth answers the phone. It's another anonymous call.
