David tells Ruth Alistair is trying to get him to play cricket again and they discuss the repair needed to the cricket pitch roller. It's a job for Chris but Alistair is having trouble pinning him down. Their conversation turns to hens - they've started moving them from the caravan to the egg-mobile. They agree Josh came over really well in the local TV news coverage of the pastured hens but they don't suppose Neil will have enjoyed it.
Ed and Emma take Keira to the Millennium Wood to seek out the elfish dwellings. They discuss the prospect of having to find somewhere to live now the Sterlings are definitely returning. They'll be sad to leave Grange Farm, particularly as the children love it there. Emma says they will always have the option of moving back in with her parents. Keira is thrilled by the evidence of elves and Emma tells Ed he's a brilliant dad.
Peggy visits Helen in prison. When Helen asks after Henry and the farm, Peggy assures her everything is fine. Peggy says her family will still visit her when she's in the mother and baby unit even though it's much further away. Helen says it's too far for Peggy to travel but Peggy says she'll be constantly worrying if she doesn't visit her. Peggy reminds Helen she's an Archer woman and bred tough. Her family will be strong for her and she needs to be strong for her children. Helen says the baby must not be taken by Rob. She wants to keep the baby and Henry safe, and make sure they don't stop loving her. Show less
