Lily's secret is revealed, and Justin helps out a friend in need.

At Home Farm Brian begs to be allowed back into the marital bed. Jennifer reminds him that he chose to leave. While out riding Justin finds Brian foraging for elderflowers to replace the ruined cordial. Brian gets stuck up a tree, and has to climb down via Aziz. Brian returns feeling very pleased with himself. He and Justin had a few drinks while they debugged to elderflowers. Jennifer finds the story hilarious, but it's not enough to get him out of the spare bedroom.

Johnny arrives at Lower Loxley early to give Freddie a lift to college, and Lily decides to join them. To Freddie's annoyance Johnny tells Lily about his meeting. The Deputy Principal - "call me Russ" - knows about Freddie's drug dealing. Freddie denies everything, but Russ isn't convinced. Freddie surmises that Lily told on him, and returns home to confront her. Lily argues that she was trying to protect him, but Freddie thinks she's made things worse. He isn't dealing again, actually, but Ellis spotted him passing on smart drugs to a mate, and has been threatening him. Now Ellis thinks he snitched to Russ. Lily can't see any difference between smart drugs and dealing. Then Freddie makes the connection between the leather jacket in their car and Russ - he and Lily are having an affair!
