Lachlan thinks he's insane and insists Lawrence needs to stop Tim no matter what it takes. Robert bumps into Rebecca as he's coming out of the shop. He tells her about Aaron returning and hopes that the fact Aaron hasn't asked him to leave the flat yet is a good sign. Laurel calls round at Dale View and lets herself in. Finn offers to talk to Arthur about losing their dads but Laurel doesn't think that's necessary. She questions if Finn thinks there's any truth in Ashley's statement that there was someone else on the bridge with James when he fell. Finn isn't sure, revealing they didn't know James was depressed until the inquest. Laurel asks more about the inquest. Lachlan demands Gerry leaves today. Chrissie receives another message from 'Simon' but ignores it as she wants to forget about yesterday. Adam believes that if Robert really cared about Aaron, he'd back off so Victoria decides to have a word. Adam orders Robert out of the flat as Aaron appears in the pub. Finn tells Laurel that he should've realised something was wrong with James when he didn't go to Holly's funeral. Finn talks about Emma blaming herself and how she said James' death was all down to her at the inquest. Emma arrives home from her retreat so Finn and Laurel call an end to their conversation. Robert tells Aaron that he missed him so much and begs for a chance to work things out but Aaron states it's too late for that. Gerry watches on as Lachlan stands in front of Tim's car as he's driving up the driveway at Home Farm. Tim gets out so Lachlan grabs him and shoves him against the car. Gerry helps Lachlan and they shove Tim in the boot. Emma and Finn head to the café where Emma asks her son about his talk with Laurel. Emma worries when Finn mentions he and Laurel talked about James' depression. Ronnie has sold his work van ahead of the move to St Ives. Chrissie tells Lawrence that 'Simon' has text her saying yesterday was a mistake and he's going back to Dubai. Lawrence is relieved. Meanwhile, Lachlan and Gerry take Tim to a secluded spot in the woods. On Lachlan's instruction, Gerry opens the boot. Victoria calls round at Mill Cottage to check up on Robert and asks where Robert will go. Although Diane has offered him a room at Brook Cottage, Robert has decided to stay at the B&B. Victoria offers him a room at Keepers Cottage but Robert thinks it's a bad idea with Rebecca staying there too. Robert tries to come to terms that he and Aaron are over for good.

He insists he only wants to get to know him and Chrissie but Lachlan refuses to allow Tim to ruin everything and vows to do whatever it takes to protect his family. Worried Paddy checks up on Rhona in the café. Rhona asks him not to mollycoddle her as it's making her feel like a victim again.
