Tom still hasn't told his family about his relationship breakdown with Brenda. He is in a daze at work, ignoring his mother's appeal for a catch-up over lunch.
Tony is concerned that his son has too much on his plate. Pat thinks it strange that Tom hasn't spoken any further about selling the herd, but Tony dismisses his behaviour as a result of being overworked.
On his way to meet Lilian, Paul receives a call from his ex-wife Celia. She is extremely angry that Paul is trying to emotionally blackmail their children into not attending her wedding.
By the time Lilian arrives at the flat, Paul is distant and lost in thought. Lilian's attempts at chit chat only serve to make Paul angrier. Thinking Paul is upset that she couldn't get away from Ambridge earlier, Lilian seeks an explanation for Paul's bad mood. But her queries are greeted with hostility and Paul's angry outburst is somewhat cruel. Lilian storms out of the flat, leaving her lover alone.
