Clarrie and Susan rifle through bags of material donated for the additional extras’ costumes. Clarrie warns Susan not to get any ideas about making late changes to her costume. Meanwhile Alice and Chris meet to discuss arrangements with Martha over Christmas. Alice gives Chris a pair of Christmas socks. Alan passes and ends up explaining that Usha and Amy are spending Christmas at Shiv’s but he insists he won’t be alone as he’ll be so busy with church commitments. Oliver finds Kirsty half-asleep at work. Being the producer of The Ambridge Mystery Plays is taking its toll; it’s taken over her life. Oliver tries to help her regain her motivation for the show. She’s not sure she can gee up the cast with so many notes on their performances to pass on. Oliver suggests putting on a cast celebration once it’s all over. He’ll even sponsor some awards. Kirsty thinks it’s a great idea. Hearing from Chris that Alan is alone over Christmas, Susan chews this information over with Clarrie as they work in the dairy. Could this be the first crack in Alan and Usha’s relationship? Susan feels terrible with Alan being so supportive of Alice and Chris recently. When she prompts Clarrie about the GIF of Alan, Clarrie feels equally bad. Later, Clarrie and Susan find Alan at St. Stephen’s and question him about Usha going away. They insist he splits his time on Christmas Day between Ambridge View and Grange Farm. Alan tries to turn down their offers but finds it impossible!
