Toby bumps into Kirsty at the village shop and seems to know of her from her interview for the Grey Gables job. She's less familiar with him. Toby tries to chat Kirsty up and tells her about the business idea he and Rex are researching - pastured eggs. Kirsty realises who Toby is - one of those "brothers" - and Ruth later warns Kirsty that Toby has a bit of a reputation. Ruth also tells a shocked Kirsty about Helen collapsing in the shop on Friday. Ed's delighted for Adam who tells Ed about winning back the Estate contract. Adam has a couple of weeks' worth of solid work for Ed - helping cultivate the land. At the hospital, Helen's told she has anaemia. Rob is comforting and concerned but chastises Helen for not eating properly and makes her feel guilty for endangering their unborn child. Rob has Helen's phone and gets a text from Kirsty. Rob says he'll pass a message back for Helen. Rob then takes a call from worried Kirsty and is rather cold with her, telling Helen made the conversation all about herself. He decides to keep hold of Helen's phone and points out that of the team of people looking after Helen, he is the most important. Rob is not going to let Helen out of his sight.
