It's time to party at Home Farm, and Justin is on hand to help.
Helen takes Tom to the airport. He has decided to go to the Brazil conference after all. He feels like he's running away again, but Helen assures him he is doing the right thing.
Hostess Jennifer steers Lilian out of the way before opening the door to Justin and Miranda. At the soiree, Robert thinks there's no need for Lynda to escalate a complaint about Kirsty's manner at Grey Gables. They also discuss whether the Sterlings know about the B&B set-up at Grange Farm - if not, they don't want to let on and risk having the Grundys evicted.
Jim fetches more wine for the Mayor of Felpersham, although is concerned about her intake. He questions Brian about his biodiversity plans for the land he's just bought.
Miranda spots Lilian and tells Justin to at least say hello to her. Later, Justin tenderly helps Lilian with an earring that's come out of her ear. Neither of them realise that Miranda observes the moment. Jennifer thanks Miranda for helping the Mayor who wasn't feeling well. She claims she must have eaten some broccoli. Once Justin and Miranda have left, Jennifer wishes she'd never invited the Mayor. Lilian joins them and is quietly triumphant: she hasn't let them down this evening. Jennifer was worrying about the wrong person all along...
