Jennifer says she has more pressing worries just now.

Brian and Alice try to press Debbie on how she will vote but she refuses to commit. Alice urges Brian to be positive. Alice is behind him and believes selling land will carry the votes.

  • Turns out that Susan’s secret weapon is Neil. She believes Neil is Justin’s right hand man and he will be able to pull strings for Emma and Ed. He will make sure they are the winners and not the losers.
  • Debbie has asked for a specific picture of Moonbeam, her pony when she was 5 or 6. She would love a copy. They look at old photos of the house when they first moved in.

Jennifer asks Debbie if she has any further thoughts but Debbie apologises that she hasn’t. Ruth has called to say sorry again but they both agree Ruth did nothing wrong. Jennifer brings up the sale of the house. It makes financial sense. Debbie points out that Jennifer has put her whole life into it and she can’t vote to take that away.
