Natasha tells Mark that they need to watch Cain as he won’t back down easily. Her prophecy comes true in the village when Maisie tells Cain that his flirting will not go unrewarded. Back at Home Farm, Natasha is interrupted from the preparations by a knock at the door – it's Faye. After a decidedly awkward conversation about job vacancies, Faye is horrified to discover what Natasha is planning for. Mark is stunned to be told about the unexpected incident and angrily rips up Faye's CV in front of a puzzled Natasha. Meanwhile, Eric is adamant that he won’t give up on the election despite suffering a suspected heart attack. David seeks answers from his father but Eric refuses to talk to him and David is none the wiser as to his health issues. When David later overhears a semi-argument between Val  and Eric, he demands answers. Eric lies that he invented an illness to guilt David into pulling out of the election. Val is incredulous and begs him not to beckon an early grave as an act of male pride, but he will not be told. Eric tries to apologise to David for lying but is told he's a despicable father. Elsewhere, Doug is concerned when he discovers the rift between Laurel and Ashley. Examining the void in their relationship, Doug wonders how he can help them out. He finds Ashley and realises that there's been a communication breakdown where both Laurel and Ashley want to talk about their feelings but feel unable to do so. Doug hastily arranges an opportunity for them to chat and Laurel discovers that Ashley is worried about damaging their marriage so soon after they’ve gotten back on track. Laurel manages to calm his fear and they agree to try for a baby at a time in the future when both feel ready.
