Jim takes Joe for a picnic at the orchard to lift his spirits. It's good to see Joe out and about in the fresh air where he belongs. Joe chats about harvesting cider apples and says there's plenty of life in the old dog yet. Jim suggests making a date for a cider-tasting jaunt. Although Joe's cagey, Jim's undeterred.

While Tom and Kirsty are having a lazy morning, Kirsty wonders if Helen's ok. She was a bit snappy with Henry last night. Tom says she was a bit reserved but maybe she was just giving Henry some boundaries.

Helen can't believe Rob's visiting her at work. What the hell is he playing at? He says he's worried about her as she's not replied to any of his texts. Helen tells him she wants no part of his games and to leave her alone.

When Kirsty asks Helen if she's all right, Helen bursts into tears. She admits that Rob's broken up with her. She hadn't told Kirsty at first because Kirsty had warned her about the relationship. Helen's all over the place. She thought they were so right for each other. It hurts so much. She wishes she'd never met Rob.
