Emma hatches a cunning plan and Adam fears for the future
Shula’s keen to check how Oliver’s getting on with the organisation of the Hunt Ball. Oliver’s happy with it; it’s not the first one he’s done, and it’s giving him something to do.
Later at the karate class Emma and Shula agree it’s unfair of Damara to go back on their promise and reduce the number of affordable homes at the Beechwood development. It’s good of Jill to speak up at the upcoming council meeting, but Emma’s not hopeful. They remark on the absence of Helen at the class. Emma explains Henry’s run in with Lee, and how upset Henry was. They hope Helen will come back to the class. Meanwhile Emma does her best to encourage Lee to buy his organic produce from Bridge Farm…
Roy’s concerned about Lexi’s mood. He tells Adam she’s declined a job opportunity he’d lined up for her at Grey Gables, and she seems very up and down. They hope it’s just that she’s missing Bulgaria. But having shared his concerns with Ian later, Adam admits they’re both worried Lexi may have changed her mind about the surrogacy. Roy reassures him. Lexi knows how much this baby means to Adam and Ian; she won’t let them down.
