David makes an enemy and Elizabeth finds herself backed into a corner.
Alistair, Eddie and David cross paths at Borchester Market. David tells them of the rock bottom prices Vince Casey bought his sheep for. Eddie warns him of the perils of crossing swords with Vince. David is furious to discover Vince blocking him in in the carpark. After an altercation with Vince, David suggests that Hassett Hills steps in to buy Crowthers, giving the co-op control over processing their animals. Later, David tells Brian that the other Hassett Hills members are in favour of buying Crowthers, but they’d need a partner. Brian has no interest in working with Vince again, and suggests that he persuades Borchester Land to come in on the deal. Vince Casey will find himself with some serious competition.
