Ian's putting all his energy into designing the Grey Gables Christmas menu. He deflects Adam's attempts to discuss the question of finding another surrogate. But Adam doesn't believe he really wants to give up at the first setback. He books Ian an appointment at a fertility clinic. Ian protests that the timing isn't good, but is impressed that Adam has taken the initiative.
Ruth is interested to hear that Pip and Alfie enjoyed the Primestock Show. Ruth and David have decided it's finally time to refurbish the Brookfield milking parlour, and Ruth offers Pip the job of overseeing the redesign. To Ruth's delight Pip finally decides to return to Rickyard.
Shula explains to Peggy and Christine that Anisha is considering moving her father to The Laurels, although her uncle objects. Christine had always assumed that she would move there if she needed to, but after Shula leaves she laments to Peggy that she couldn't now afford the fees. The family must think she's such a fool. Peggy tries to console her - she still has plenty of money from the sale of Woodbine. But that's the problem - Christine lied about only investing £50,000. In fact, she has lost everything, but couldn't bear for anyone else to find out. Peggy promises to keep the secret. She'll sort something out.
