Lee feels out of control over the possibility of the presence of Rob. Kirsty begs him not to do anything stupid. While they look for a key to beef up security at the Beechwood house, the CCTV system alerts Lee. He rushes to catch the intruder, assuming it’s Rob. But Kirsty quickly realises it’s Blake, one of Philip’s former slaves. He’s in a sorry state but he insists he’s fine and explains he’s been waiting for Philip as he’s keen to work for him again.
Brian requests more consultation from Stella on decisions about Home Farm and she replies with the same request. She quizzes Brian on who he thinks might take over the farm from him and he can’t provide a solid answer. Brian points out where Adam has gone wrong in the past but Stella thinks Adam was ahead of his time with his commitment to soil health; she’s seldom seen soil in better heart.
Lee’s apologetic for attacking Blake when he saw him. Blake tells him not to worry about it. Blake questions Lee about who Rob is and why he would be hanging round, and then apologises for asking too many questions. Blake panics when Kirsty explains a police officer, Harrison, is coming over. Both Lee and Kirsty try to calm him but Blake won’t be pacified. He points out Philip told him to stay away from police, believing that the explosion at Grey Gables was his fault. So how can he talk to Harrison?
