Tom is still distracted at work and blames Maurice for his mistake. Maurice can tell something else is bothering Tom and lends a sympathetic, if pessimistic, ear. Tom refuses to believe his relationship with Brenda is over and isn't too happy to hear Maurice's tips for moving on.
Neil attempts to repair the rotting henhouse. While discussing the amount of effort and money that will go into repairing the church organ, Hayley and Neil wonder if their hens remain economically viable.
Believing those he has interviewed for Borsetshire Life have been struck down by a curse, Jim feels guilty about Chris's accident. He delivers Chris some DVDs and books to keep him occupied during his recovery. Jim also takes over chef duties after hearing Chris is bored and frustrated.
Jim is still struggling to find a final interviewee. Alice suggests Brian and provides a useful tip - go through Jennifer to secure the interview.
Once Jim leaves, Alice has bad news. Someone at work has read her correspondence about the job in Canada and now her boss wants a chat. Upset that this could potentially ruin her career, Alice worries that Brendan won't give her the experience needed to progress.
