Clearly upset, Ruth tells her about Pip’s threatening phone call. When Ruth confesses she wants to get the children away, Jill offers to have them at Glebe Cottage. Ruth adds that no-one else knows about the threats. Ruth would like the children to stay with Heather, her mum, but David is dead set against it.
Jill talks to David and works her magic. David changes his mind for the sake of his marriage and his own state of mind. Relieved, Ruth is grateful that they will now be united in the fight.
