Peggy is baking for the Jubilee cake. There's enough mixture to make some cakes for The Laurels too, which Elona offers to take over. Lilian learns that Matt is still paying Darrell in cash. Later, Lilian calls Elona to tell her that she's sorted it. Darrell's wages will be on a proper footing by the end of the week.
Kenton helps Jolene decorate The Bull. He's had another photo from Meriel, and asks Jolene if she thinks a trip to New Zealand might be possible at some point.
Adam is sitting in the garden looking through an old diary that catalogues his travels. He reminisces about his formative years. In a discussion with Lilian, he reveals he sometimes wonders if he should have stayed in Kenya. He felt as though he was making a difference there, but in Ambridge he feels as though he is an insignificant cog that inadvertently keeps the Borchester Land machine running.
Later on, as Lilian and Ian have a drink at The Bull, they discuss Adam's behaviour. Lilian tells Ian that Adam is brooding. He just needs taking out of himself.
