Brian heads over to the market site. All’s well and it looks like they’ll meet the deadline after all. Debbie will be flying back to the UK for the BL meeting on Friday. Jennifer was hoping that she’d arrive on Thursday in time for a nice big family dinner. She’s disappointed when Brian learns that Debbie will arrive on Friday morning and go straight to the meeting from the airport.
Susan spots Elona and her two children moving into Number 3 The Green. She wonders to Lilian how Elona can afford the rent on her care assistant wages. After getting a text from Kylie, Susan calls her back and invites Kylie to spend Thursday night with her and Neil after the funeral.
Jennifer pops over to see Tony, cheerfully offering up pheasants. Tony’s less effusive, only coming to life to tell Jennifer about how busy he’s been with their new marketing strategy. He emphasises meaningfully that success clearly comes when families pull together. Later, Tony catches up with Lilian who suggests the pheasants may have been a peace offering. They discuss Peggy’s upcoming birthday event, with Tony asking Lilian to find a way for him to avoid sitting next to Jennifer.
