  • Shula goes to the Good Friday service with her mother. She’s worried about Jill, but Jill points out that she has to learn to adapt to life without Phil, and that means spending some time on her own. She appreciates everyone’s kindness, but she must find a balance.
  • Jennifer reveals that Brian finally told her about Kate’s restlessness, and now she’s worried. She’s tried to tell Kate how lucky she is to have her own and Lucas’ family, but Kate is so headstrong and impetuous that Jennifer fears she may do something rash.
  • Tom comments that there’s an Easter wedding at Lower Loxley, and asks Brenda if that’s what she’d like. Brenda is taken aback, and snaps at Tom, accusing him of being jealous of Helen and her hoped-for baby. They go for a walk, and Brenda explains that for her, living with Tom equals commitment. She must find a job and establish a career before she thinks of marriage and children. She loves Tom, but she won’t marry him. Is that OK, she asks. Glumly Tom says it will have to be.
