Jill and Heather chat over breakfast. They agree there's nothing like being in your own home but it's nice having people around.

Ruth helps David with the cows. She's sorry, she feels she's let him down. David says she should never feel that. They could try for a baby if they decided they wanted another? But Ruth thinks they should treasure what they have.

Ruth says goodbye to her mum. Heather hugs her daughter and assures her that everything will be okay.

As David and Ruth share a comforting moment, Jill thoughtfully leaves them together before preparing dinner. David and Ruth agree that it works well having Jill around. Maybe they should ask her to move back in permanently.

Shula is convinced that Dan has a secret girlfriend. Alistair says he's learned to keep out of things connected with Dan's girlfriends. When Dan's mobile phone rings, Alistair tells Shula she should leave it alone.

As Shula grooms one of the horses, Dan arrives. He needs to speak to Shula and Alistair together. Since returning home, he has had time to put things into perspective. He's decided he's not going to study law, in fact he doesn't want to go to university at all. Dan has made his decision. He's joining the Army.
