Vicky’s still not sleeping, and Mike’s’ going to have to work extra hours as Harry wants time off. On her way to Grey Gables, Vicky comes across Lynda ‘communing with the bridge.’ Upon the advice of her theatre director, Lynda is attempting to communicate with the energy of their chosen performance sites. However, Vicky manages to distract her with coffee and a chat. Vicky hasn’t been feeling well lately and, over their drinks, she reveals she has been having mood swings and hot flushes. Lynda gives her some advice about the menopause, as both assume Vicky’s feelings are symptomatic of the change.
Distracted by recent events, David accidentally drives the landrover into a ditch. Thankfully, Adam comes to the rescue and helps get the lambs out of the trailer. Mike turns up in time to help them tow the landrover out of the ditch. David is embarrassed: it’s not like him to be so careless. News of Keith’s arrest has spread across Ambridge and Mike comments upon the Horrobin family’s unlawful history. An ever-rational David reminds Mike that they don’t yet know it was Keith. With the lambs back in the trailer, he rushes off to market. He’s too late, but ends up selling the lambs to a butcher who missed out on the bidding and was happy to pay a good price, in cash. David recalls Phil saying that family farms make a nation strong. He tells Adam that he knows what Phil meant - it’s certainly worth fighting for.
