Hayley and Roy are busy decorating Phoebe’s bedroom. They can’t wait for her to come home. Vicky and Brenda come round to chat to Phoebe on Skype. Vicky volunteers Mike to pay for a family holiday when Phoebe gets back. Brenda has a go at Vicky for suggesting it in Mike’s absence. Brenda also wishes Vicky had spoken to her before putting her name forward to help with the marketing of Ambridge’s cultural olympiad.
Chatting on Skype, Phoebe tells Josh she’s enjoying her birthday. Josh has to go to answer the home phone - it’s Adam. Josh tells him that he and Ben are finishing school early, to spend the summer in Prudhoe. Adam mentions it to Ruth, and Ruth lets slip that the gang who attacked Adam is responsible for recent goings-on at Brookfield. Adam is shocked to learn the truth. Ruth explains that David is determined to testify, but she doesn’t want him to. Ruth asks Adam to have a word with David.
Adam tells Ian that he thinks David should pull out. Ian can see where Adam’s coming from, but insists that the criminals can’t get away with what they did to Adam. Arguing that David needs to do what he must do, he asks Adam to think about it.
