The worst of it is everything is going so well between them and this will just spoil things. Pat makes her realise she’ll just have to tell Kenton she doesn’t want to marry him….
  • Pip produces her cake for David and Ruth. Ruth thinks it’s beautiful. And then David produces a card for Ruth too. He didn’t just buy it to make Pip happy. He’s been thinking and he doesn’t want to throw away 18 years with Ruth. He wants to try.
