Toby suspects Pip is broken hearted over Matthew but she says on the contrary - they are very much still an item. Toby says it was clearly just a holiday romance. Suspicious Jill arrives on the scene and Toby makes his excuses. To Jill Pip reflects on how fate seems to have played a hand in her meeting Matthew - he doesn't judge and Pip can be totally herself with him. Brian seems in a mood - he admits to Jennifer he's wondering about how wise it would be to re-join the BL Board. Brian's also concerned about Kate, who seems to be avoiding him - never a good sign. Brian briefs Adam to be business-like at their crucial BL meeting on Thursday. Adam points out that he wants the Estate contract back as much as Brian does. Lilian feels like she has got her mojo back, modelling for Jennifer a new outfit which she has bought. Jennifer will carefully choose her moment to tell Brian about Lilian staying on at Home Farm. Lilian and Jennifer also privately discuss Kate's problems with her rural retreat business - it's all clearly going to be too expensive. Brian asks what they're whispering about - what are they plotting? Jennifer accuses Brian of being paranoid.
