Jennifer and Susan gossip about Helen in the village shop, and a young girl enters. Elizabeth catches Jennifer on her way out and asks if she recognises the girl - because Elizabeth does, vaguely. Elizabeth realises it is Sasha, Dr Richard Locke's daughter. Sasha was visiting her father, but he's not at home. Elizabeth says she can drive Sasha to Felpersham as the buses are infrequent, but they should check with her dad first. It transpires that Sasha ran away after a fight with her mother. Sasha arrives back home to a telling off from Richard. Later, Richard arrives at Lower Loxley with flowers for Elizabeth as a thank you. Flattered, Elizabeth reassures him that every family has their problems and invites him in for a drink. He declines. Lilian passes by the shop, reporting she still doesn't know who to nominate for Borsetshire Businesswoman of the Year. It is an event that Justin is now sponsoring. Lilian tries to get Jennifer to write about Justin's investments on the website, and ignores Jennifer's attempts to suggest nominees. Lilian finally comes up with a nominee: Elizabeth!
