Lynda's upset about the error in Christine's ginger scone recipe, but Jill reassures her. Lynda's edgy when Lilian asks if Leonie and James are visiting together over Christmas.
When Lynda tells Leonie she needs to decide about James, Leonie says she wishes she knew and then bursts into tears, leaving Lynda wondering what she's said.
Later Leonie apologises. She's confused about her relationship and needs time to think. Lynda's late for rehearsals and is perturbed when Lilian says that Kenton's directing in her absence. Lilian wonders if Lynda's concerned that Leonie appears to have vanished into thin air. Lynda assures her that Leonie will be fine.
While Jill and Jim are Christmas shopping, Jim thinks he spots Darrell singing drunkenly, with the police moving him on. Later Jim sees Darrell shoplifting. Darrell says he's looking for a present for Rosa, but Jim says he saw him steal something. Darrell denies it and heads off, but is apprehended by the store detective. Jim wants to help him but Jill says to leave him. Maybe this way, someone with the right skills will notice Darrell and give him some proper help. And then maybe he'll stay out of Shula and Alistair's lives.
