Susan is asking Pat all about the wedding preparations. She thinks a marquee at the farm will be lovely. Susan is keen to establish what Pat will be wearing and is surprised that Pat hasn't given it much thought. As they head for a tea-break some estate agent details fall from the magazine Susan has with her. Susan finds this upsetting. Emma must have been looking at house particulars. Susan wishes she had won more money to make all Emma's dreams come true.
Tom and Pat are surprised when a lorry of cows arrives at the farm that Tony claims are his.
Pat calls Tony a dark horse but comments they are fine looking beasts and looks forward to hearing the plan for then. Tom is angry. How could his dad do all this research and make such an investment without telling them? Tony explains to Tom that this is not a game and that the suckler herd will give a good return as they are a well-regarded beef brand worldwide. Tom explains he had plans for the land for the weaners he has just ordered. Tony reminds Tom that he and Pat built the farm up and they are not going to be railroaded or put out to pasture by him. Tom and Peggy have written him off as a farmer but he will not go quietly.
Tony also explains that the outlay has been quite high so they will not be in a position to contribute as much to the wedding. Tom, still angry, cancels the marquee. They are not having the wedding at the farm any more.
