Caroline is having a good week with Joe accepting the compensation offer, bookings on the up at Grey Gables and the Christmas ball on the horizon. Now all that's left is to find herself a deputy manager.
Kathy admits to Caroline that, even though she has accepted the job in Felpersham, she would like to be considered for the deputy manager position. Caroline is taken aback. Reminding Kathy that she can't make any promises, she leaves the decision up to Kathy.
Darrell seeks Shula out at the Stables in order to apologise for his behaviour the previous night. But Shula is still too upset to listen to his self-pity or his excuses. When Darrell confesses to Alistair that he ruined the videos, angry Alistair takes Darrell for a private chat.
Alistair is calm but tough. Darrell makes many excuses and apologies, and promises Alistair things will be different from now on. But it's too little too late this time. Alistair has had enough.
When Shula later tries to defend Darrel, Alistair's case is too strong and he knows he has convinced Shula too. Darrell will have to leave.
