Usha wishes Fallon all the best for Harrison’s baptism tomorrow. Fallon is equivocal, and sensitive Usha backs off. But Fallon wants to talk, and asks Usha how it is being in a mixed marriage. Usha shares her thoughts on the challenges she and Alan initially faced as a couple. They had to prove themselves and their commitment to one another, something Fallon and Harrison won’t have to do. Fallon queries whether Harrison will want to stick with her if she doesn’t share his views. Usha reckons it’s clear Harrison loves Fallon and the fact they’re together answers her question.
Justin’s hard line on whether Berrow should close isn’t well received by Lilian. She points out how its closure would affect people in their community, and how bad this would be once they know he’s behind it. Justin insists that the only people who know his mind are the other BL board members.
Susan’s upset when Neil mentions that Alice is seeing a solicitor regarding full time care of Martha. Later Justin rubs out of sorts Susan up the wrong way. Lilian wonders what’s wrong with her – it can’t have been Justin, as Susan was clearly distracted before they saw her. The thought occurs to Justin that word may have got out about Berrow. Why else would Susan be so tetchy with them? If news has leaked, declares Justin grimly, the culprit will be toast.
