When Terry spots a flustered Charity leaving Pear Tree Cottage, at the same time she's due to meet Louise for a lunch date, he concludes that Chris was right about the affair. Meanwhile, Charity and Cain reach an agreement over Debbie returning to Home Farm now that the summer holidays are over. It soon becomes clear that Cain has another motive behind allowing Debbie back into the Tate household. Confiding in Debbie over his relationship with Charity, Cain tells his daughter that her moving back may help to drive Charity and Chris further apart. Having refused to take the life-prolonging medicine Chris starts to put his affairs in order. His lawyer advises him that Charity gets half his estate unless he writes a new will. Sensing that Chris is not himself, Charity reaches out to her husband, who emotionally asks her to move back into his bedroom so they can try to save their marriage. Elsewhere, Ollie is highly amused when Pearl appears at the door with a homemade trifle for Len. But the suggestion that Grandad could have some fun with Pearl provokes Len into revealing that he only has eyes for one - Edna Birch. Ashley wakes up on the sofa to the sight of Laurel brandishing a smile and a cup of tea. The vicar can’t remember what on earth happened in his drunken state so decides to get to the bottom of it. He finds broaching the subject with Laurel very embarrassing, however is relieved to learn that he did not get up to anything untoward. Besotted Laurel is left feeling disappointed when Ashley politely rejects her offer of a drink and Lothario Robert plays a dangerous game when he lies to Elaine, telling her that he's finished with Donna.
