Amy begs to talk to Fallon at the Tearoom but gets an icy reception. Amy can’t bear the atmosphere between them. Fallon agrees to keep things civil, but only for Alice’s sake. She points out Alice is trying to put her life back together, and Amy’s risking her friend’s recovery. Amy crumbles; she doesn’t want any of this to be happening, and she has feelings for Chris. Her head’s all over the place. Fallon urges her gently to go home. Amy leaves to figure out what to do. Later she calls Fallon and tells her she’s decided to leave Ambridge after Martha’s party.
Tracy and Jazzer are furtive at Grey Gables Reception as she sorts him out a room key card for their tryst. She cuts short his clowning around for fear of being discovered, and sends him off to open up the room. Tracy’s intercepted by Oliver, who informs her that a guest is being moved to the room she’s just put Jazzer in. Tracy rushes to oust now naked Jazzer, having despatched the guest to the bar to delay her arrival. But before Jazzer can get his clothes back on, Oliver arrives at the room and lets himself in. They’re sprung. Oliver’s furious at their breach of trust and sends mortified Tracy home. He’s suspending her immediately, pending further action.
