Jimmi finally catches up with Eva at the station and reveals he saw her kissing another man last night; what’s going on? Eva explains that the man was Alistair her long time partner of ten years.
Jimmi is stunned and asks if she intends to leave him, but she doesn’t know. She doesn’t love him in the way she used to, but she just can’t throw it away over one night of passion. Eva tells him that she is very attracted to him but apologises that she can’t just leave Alistair and maybe they should just be friends. Jimmi painfully agrees.
Meanwhile, Vivien is on a day off she has to go to dentist, but she is a little early. Fiona notices Vivien as she is parking her car. Fiona use to nurse with Vivien and suggests that they go for a cup of tea, Vivien reluctantly agrees. Fiona tells Vivien that she married and left nursing but her husband died three months ago and she is finding it difficult to come to terms with it. Agatha appears and Fiona blanks her, but Vivien acknowledges her.
There is enormous tension between the two and Vivien decides to leave for the dentists. Fiona is waiting for her when she comes out. Vivien’s heart sinks, she tries to get away from her but Fiona is insistent. They go for a walk in the park. Vivien wonders what is wrong with her and Agatha as they had once been best friends.
Fiona explains that she had married Agatha’s brother and they had fallen out. Agatha didn’t go to the funeral and now is after Fiona’s house as Richard her husband had left it to both of them. Vivien thinks that Agatha is grieving too and that they should try and settle things. Fiona is clearly very lonely and thinks that Vivien is the answer but Vivien has other ideas and excuses herself that she cannot offer the sort of companionship she needs.
As she arrives home Agatha is there, Vivien has no choice but to invite her in and she explains how the friendship with her and Fiona fell apart and why she didn’t go to the funeral but went travelling to mourn her brother. They talk about the house and Vivien points out that perhaps it was Richard’s way of getting the two women back together again. Agatha suggests she give her half to Fiona. She wants to go and see her now and persuades Vivien to go along.
Fiona lets them in, the women continue to fight about the house until Vivien makes them see sense and Agatha agrees to give up her share of the house for some of her brother’s belongings which hold memories for her. The two women come to realise that they both need each other and that they are both painfully lonely. Vivien leaves them looking through old photographs.
