One villager makes a shocking admission, and Brian finds himself out in the cold.

Over a few beers Will reveals to Ed what happened the night that Nic hit Matt. Nic had gone to collect Poppy from Bev's. Poppy was unwell and threw up in the car, distracting Nic for a moment. She hit something. Nic stopped and got out but there was no phone signal to call for help, so she drove home. When she got back she was hysterical and Poppy was in tears. Will left Nic to sort out Poppy and went to see what had happened, but got there to see an ambulance and police cars. Will learned from a taxi driver that there was a body. Will panicked and went home where he washed and fixed up the car. He then confirmed with Nic that she had hit a person, not a deer. Will told her not to call the police. Nic always said that if anyone got charged she would confess. Will tells Ed he's glad her last few months were happy and doesn't regret anything about the cover up.

At Home Farm the meeting is back on and Adam makes no bones about telling Brian that he is the problem and needs to fully retire. Debbie and Ruth agree. Alice and Kate vote with Brian to remain and create a separate company. Brian thinks Jennifer will back him and he'll get a majority of shares. But Jenifer brings him up short, when she sides with Adam. Brian's dumbfounded - how can she do this to him?!
