A prospective client for the yoghurt at Bridge Farm is due with no-one but Susan available to show her round. Clarrie’s off sick and Susan’s at a loss. Tony’s tied up fixing a fence with Johnny, but promises to sort it. Adam’s drafted in, though Susan’s not happy with such a novice. Adam promises to stay out of the way and act as background support. The client, Lorraine, is impressed with the taste and texture of the yoghurt, and with the set up as a whole. Susan’s relieved, until the issue of hazard analysis is raised, under an acronym which blindsides her. Experienced manager Adam steps in and takes over. As the client leaves it’s clear she thinks Susan’s the trainee rather than Adam, leaving Susan fuming. Adam laughs that the main thing is she loved the product. Lilian and Alice chat in the tackroom after a ride. They’re interrupted by Chris, who insists Lilian stays around to hear what he has to say to Alice. He wants their divorce done as soon as possible. He needs Alice to think about citing some instances of unreasonable behaviour. Shocked Alice can’t. And what’s the rush? Chris insists he’s barely coping and can’t live uncertainty anymore. Alice refuses to call Chris unreasonable, so Chris states he’ll just have to cite her behaviour instead. He leaves, asking Lilian to look after Alice. Alice doesn’t blame Chris, and states firmly that he’s doing the right thing. Concerned Lilian keeps checking on Alice, who declares she’s fine, before ordering two bottles of vodka.
