At The Woolpack, Bernice is quick to slam down the phone when Ashley appears, and she is sheepish when he comments that he knows she is not back in the village because of her maternal instincts. Soon afterwards in the café, Bernice is catty towards Nicola and Laurel. Diane and Rodney are saddened but not surprised when Bernice tells them that her marriage is over and that's why she is back.

Later, Laurel and Ashley try to talk to Bernice about setting some ground rules where Gabby is concerned. However, Bernice says that she has no idea how long she'll be staying and won't take lectures from them. Diane tries to read Bernice as she enjoys herself, drinking champagne with Charity - but it's clear that Bernice is pondering her hidden agenda as she makes another discreet phone call…

Meanwhile, Pearl has made an extra effort for Brett's first day at the vet surgery. Paddy tries to find fault in the new recruit, but fails. Rhona takes Brett back for lunch and Paddy has little choice but to let him stay with them until he gets a place sorted. Paddy is miserable as he tells Marlon about the new vet, whom he can't live up to. Marlon is stumped and can't think of what to say to make him feel better.

Later, Paddy is bolstered when Brett tells him that he is a tough act to follow, but he soon realises he is being patronised. He's not thrilled when Brett comes home later and offers to cook for them. However, Rhona is too tired to deal with Paddy's insecurities.

Elsewhere, Katie is insecure and worried about the state of her marriage, while Charity signs the papers for the business deal and Jimmy lays down the ground rules before he signs himself, worrying about what he is letting himself in for.
