Over at Brookfield, Emma is full of envy as she eyes up the new clothes Pip has bought. Emma ruefully remarks that she hasn’t had anything new for ages. She soldiers on bravely as an oblivious Pip shows off her lovely purchases. Pip is aghast when Emma comments that she can’t afford to attend a friend’s posh London wedding; she can’t believe Emma would let an opportunity like that pass her by.
Kenton is waiting for the nod from Fallon that she’s interested in the managerial job at Jaxx before putting it to Jim and Don. Jolene’s worried the process might not be as straightforward as Kenton thinks, reminding him that Fallon hasn’t put herself up for a job before. Meanwhile, Fallon tells Rhys about the proposal. His effusive response disappoints Fallon, but she presses on, giving Jolene the good news that she’s going for it. Jolene is delighted, but assures Fallon that she will be missed at The Bull. Also thrilled, Kenton suggests that Fallon meets with Don and Jim later in the week to look at dates for a handover. Fallon’s a little thrown by the speed of it all, but Kenton reassures her she’s made the right choice, insisting it’ll be a great new start. Fallon observes with forced brightness that that’s what everyone seems to think.
