Tracy wonders if Rex is sad to be moving out of the bungalow, but he says he’s ready for a change. When talk turns to the cricket team, Rex says he’s too busy. Tracy doesn’t get any further talking cricket with Chris either. Rex offers Tracy the pick of the things he’s throwing out.
Amy’s supportive of Alice when she admits it’s hard living without Chris at The Nest. She’s lucky to have family, friends and Martha – she could’ve lost it all. But it takes work keeping it all going. Amy says she’s there for her. When Alice encourages Amy to go out for a drink with Rex, Amy says she’ll think about it.
Chris apologises to Amy for giving her the wrong idea the other week, but Amy says it’s fine. Later Alice asks Chris if he’s decided about taking the cottage at Home farm, but he’s decided not to – he doesn’t want to feel indebted to her parents. They agree to carrying on mediation to sort out their finances.
Alice is pleased when Amy arranges to meet up with Rex on Thursday; they’re perfect for each other. But Amy says it’s only a friendly drink – they hardly know one another. However if she’s to put last year behind her, a night out with Rex is a good starting place. She thanks Alice – she wouldn’t have texted Rex without her encouragement. When Alice asks if she can tell Chris, Amy’s very clear she doesn’t want everyone knowing – it’s just a drink.
