Following last week’s surprising revelation, an emotional Alan tells Celia they need some distance.
Alan (Derek Jacobi) knows her well enough to understand that she’s finding it hard to adjust, and she needs to meet Gary (Rupert Graves) before making a judgement. The next day, feeling isolated in her misery, Celia drives to the farm to see Alan, and after a heart-to-heart agrees to join everyone for a Sunday lunch. Despite her initial reservations she can’t help but warm to the charming Gary.
Later John (Tony Gardner) and Gillian (Nicola Walker) fall into the familiar trap of midday drinking and sleeping together. In the morning, under a cloud of regret, Gillian asks John to leave, telling him to forget the romantic notion he has of making things work between them, as she has every intention of making a go of things with Robbie (Dean Andrews).
On the morning of Caroline and Kate’s wedding Celia determinedly refuses to attend the ceremony. Caroline (Sarah Lancashire) is hurt but refuses to let her mum’s selfish behaviour ruin her big day. After the wedding the guests return to the house to enjoy the reception. Later, when the last of the guests leave, Celia (Anne Reid) attempts to make peace but Caroline is still upset and walks away. The next day Caroline receives some devastating news from the police and calls Celia immediately. Kate’s (Nina Sosanya) been in an accident and doctors are desperately trying to save her life. Will she pull through?
