Appearances can be deceptive, and that is certainly the case when the new owner of Mill Cottage arrives in the village. Rodney is annoyed to meet the man who gazumped him, but he is quickly won over by his charm. The Woolpack customers are completely taken with him, when he dips his hand in his pocket and offers to buy everyone a drink. But while Ray Mullan impresses the villagers, local villain Cain seems distinctly uneasy about the new arrival. Marc is guilt ridden when Betty shows him a newspaper article reporting that a man has been charged with causing Miss Strickland's death. He and Eve go to the farm to make sure Andy and Robert are still staying quiet. Marlon and Rhona decide to make her last day in the village a passionate one to remember. Rodney spots the ideal opportunity to expand his business interests when he notices that the Holiday Village is up for sale. Bernice and Carlos try to put their affair behind them, and commit themselves to their partners. Louise and Diane become curious when Nicola announces that her mother will be arriving for the wedding. Charity invites Chloe to look at homes with her in the holiday village. Alan gives a down-in-the-dumps Latisha some advice.
