Lawrence asks Lachlan if he's decided what to do. Lachlan worries what Tim will do next and considers going to the police, but that's the last thing Lawrence wants as everything will come out then.

Lydia gives Laurel a herbal sleeping remedy and insists she get some rest. Tim appears at Home Farm. Tim states he isn't there to fight but locks the door so they aren't disturbed. Tim claims he was going back to save Lawrence as he was ashamed of what he did and refuses to leave until he and Lawrence talk things through. He gives back the £20,000 Lawrence tried to pay him off with, adamant Lawrence can't buy his way out of this as he tells Lawrence the truth about how Lawrence destroyed John, his family and their lives.  Megan worries she overreacted earlier. Frank brings her a large bunch of flowers but it doesn't help him win Megan back.
