Chris has had plenty of time to think about Alice's job offer in Vancouver. He's realised how much it means and doesn't want to hold her back, so he'll go with her. Alice can't believe it but she's been thinking too. She's going to turn down the job and do everything she can to get Chris back on his feet and working again.

Arriving for dinner, Iftikar's pleasantly surprised that the children are out, so it's just him and Elizabeth. After a lovely meal, they sit by the fire and the mood turns romantic. Iftikar leans over to kiss Elizabeth but she pulls back. She's sorry but it doesn't feel right. She's not ready for anything but friendship. Iftikar's disappointed, but understands.

Pat and Kathy catch up over a meal. They agree parenting never ceases to be difficult. Pat admits she and Tom are barely speaking, and now Helen seems to be on his side. Kathy suggests it might be time for Pat and Tony to seriously consider the next stage of their life. Pat doesn't expect Kathy to understand her attachment to the herd.

Pat gets home to find Tony asleep in the armchair. She acknowledges that they've both been working too hard.
