As Charity moves her stuff out of Pear Tree Cottage with Tom she comes across a photo of Noah, and Tom asks her whether she really wants to give her son up? Charity tells him that she doesn’t like the thought of him being brought up by strangers. He tells her that at his time of life he wasn’t planning to raise any more kids and tells her that she must decide whether she wants to keep Noah. Charity goes to see Lisa and tells her that if she keeps Noah she will be losing Tom and his millions. Lisa tells her some things are more important than money. Tom confides in Sadie that he thinks Charity wants to keep her son, but bringing up a child was not something he had imagined as part of their life together. Sadie tells Tom that he can’t come between a mother and her child and he must do the right thing and let Charity go. Having come to a decision Charity later tells Tom that she can’t give up her son, she's been given a second chance and has to take it. Tom surprises and delights Charity by telling her that she is so important to him that he is willing to take on Noah as well.

When Nicola catches up with Simon and Tash in The Woolpack and learns that Simon has just loaned his ex a considerable sum of money Nicola asks to have a word with the fishmonger outside.
