Clarrie brings Ruth and David a pie and offers some emotional support as Ruth explains a few details about Heather's funeral on Wednesday. Ruth doesn't feel up to speaking at the funeral - she'll ask the vicar to do all of it. Pip has been playing down her upcoming graduation and inevitable celebrations, but Ruth wants Pip to just enjoy herself and not worry about her. David chats to Eddie about helping with milking. Meanwhile, Will's got trouble with poachers, but Ed seems to be doing ok for work with some maize harvesting coming up. Ruth's annoyed to be kept out of the loop over some worrying dairy figures. Phoebe's anxious to finish her personal statement by Thursday, but Alex distracts her and puts doubts in her mind about her suitability for Oxbridge. Phoebe also talks about Kate, who never seems to stick at anything - despite her big claims of how she's going to change the world. Clarrie gently chastises Eddie for trying to suss out Ruth and David over a possible Christmas turkey order. She and Eddie agree they need to join the 21st Century and get online to rival the Fairbrothers. Clarrie encourages Eddie to fight back and join forces with Emma, who could help him get online.
