Susan can see Neil has something on his mind. With reluctance he shares with her that Berrow’s future is on the line. Shocked Susan can’t believe everyone might lose their jobs. Neil hopes it won’t come to that. He and Hannah are going to work out some cost effective ideas to strengthen Brian’s case, which Susan thinks sounds stressful. She puts it to Neil that he might want to consider retiring. But Neil’s not ready to give up on Berrow yet. He wants to try and steer his team through this crisis. Susan declares Neil a good man. She’s glad he’s talked to her. Neil tells her she mustn’t mention this to Tracy in case Jazzer finds out. He hopes to save Jazzer’s job before he’s even aware it’s at risk.
Tracy’s terrified of what Oliver’s going to say to her. Jazzer advocates simply apologising. Oliver thinks a lot of her; he’ll calm down. The meeting is set for 6pm, and Tracy’s sweating. Meanwhile Jazzer calls Oliver. He admits the whole room incident was his idea, and his fault. But his efforts fall on deaf ears and Oliver hangs up on him. Later at the meeting Oliver’s stern. Tracy begs him not to lose faith in her, but he insists he has to do things by the book. However to her joy he lets her off with a written warning. She pledges to awkward Oliver that she’ll never let him down again.
