Pip invites a delighted Rex to her birthday drinks tonight at The Bull. She thanks Rex for his advice about Matthew, and reveals she was on the point of giving up until she spoke to Rex. Pip asks about a Valentine's card she received - the writing looks like Toby's. Rex says quickly that it wasn't from him. Pip insists she is not the kind of girl that men pine over. Toby insists to a miffed Rex that he was just trying to play cupid for Rex, who tells Toby to drop it. Back to business, Rex and Toby discuss the specifications of the egg-mobile with Bert. He accepts their challenge to build it. The Grundys go ahead with introducing cattle to the land at Grange Farm without Oliver's consent. Bert questions their actions but Joe isn't concerned. Ruth and Pip are working hard. David, meanwhile, checks through the paperwork for the sale of the herd tomorrow. Pip's planning a relatively quiet night, mindful of all the changes at Brookfield. Pip and Ruth share a heartfelt moment, and together they milk the 'original' cows one final time. They're looking forward to the future, and Pip says part of what has kept her positive is having Matthew beside her. "That's love for you," says Ruth, and Pip realises that she really does love Matthew.
