Pat and Clarrie catch up at the veterans’ cricket practice – Pat’s delighted to see Clarrie who was a whizz at Single Wicket. Pat has snuck a chocolate Easter egg to eat away from dieting Natasha and offers Clarrie some. Taskmaster Tracy promises today’s session will be less strenuous, but the apprehensive team is still exhausted. Tracy asks Clarrie about Oliver. Clarrie admits he doesn’t seem himself, but she’s interrupted when Tracy tries to confiscate Pat’s chocolate egg – which Pat throws around the team amid much hilarity. Vince drops in to see Josh’s egg enterprise in action and points out that linking up with Freddie should be good for business. Josh is wary of Vince, but Vince insists he’s a pussycat. Vince is impressed by Josh’s initiative and when Josh divulges some of his big ideas like investing in solar panels for Brookfield, Vince offers to look over some figures for him. Susan tells Chris about Ruth and Stella’s proposed slurry arrangement, concerned about it disrupting the village with tankers and the smell. Noticing Chris’s stress, Susan offers to have Martha overnight so he can catch up with work. Later, Chris is shocked to learn Alice has decided to give up work and be a full time stay at home mum – she’s bound to get custody. Susan wonders how Alice can afford it but Chris contrasts the well-off Aldridges with himself. Chris decides to go for half of Alice’s assets, enabling him to employ someone at the forge and be available for childcare himself. Alice has pushed him to this and he owes it to Martha.
