Extended Summary

Lynn is depressed over Nico.

Carly cancels a date with Martin she was talked into a while ago, which she never really wanted to go in the first place! They were supposed to go together on the “Variety Night” which is coming up soon.

Bobby goes up to Lynn who’s still in bed. She tries to cheer her up.

Frank sells beer to Lance and Martin in Alf’s store even though Alf said they can’t buy any more beer from his store as a punishment for what they did to Nico.

Ailsa wants to talk to Roo about the engagement and be a friend with Roo but she is not interested.

Martin and Lance start working for Barlow, Tom’s boss, on the roads.

Carly apologises to Tom for being ashamed of his job on the roads a while ago.

Lance and Martin are in Alf’s store to buy more beer. Frank tells them he can’t sell them any more beer since Alf won’t let him sell to them due to the problems they have caused. They say they will make their own booze instead!

Fisher tells Tom and Pippa he feels partly responsible for Nico ending up in a hospital with trauma. Fisher talks to them about a plan to find out who the “nutter” who killed Nico’s cow is. Tom and Pippa agree. At the same time, Carly and Lynn are upstairs, eavesdropping on the conversation downstairs.

Roo gets angry at Frank. She thinks he is on Ailsa’s side.

Bobby finds Ailsa’s letter she got from Fisher a long time ago, the same one as Roo took from Ailsa a while ago. Bobby is upset over the fact that Ailsa has once been in love with Fisher!
