Jazzer and Tracy are both job hunting – Tracy’s after something better paid than Grey Gables. It’s depressing, there’s nothing out there and it would break her heart to leave, but she comments that Adil’s told her she has a lot of potential and could do well elsewhere. Jazzer doesn’t understand; if Adil thinks she’s so good, why’s he encouraging her to leave? Jazzer declares he’s going to find another job. He’s not letting Tracy chuck in Grey Gables.
Josh wants an opinion on his Easter idea for promoting egg sales, but distracted Freddie’s keen to track down the Easter Bunny and get him to Lower Loxley. He’s drawing interest on social media and is clearly a crowd puller. He cracks the clue as to the Bunny’s current location and heads off, taking Josh with him for assistance. However his plan goes awry and he reports later to Elizabeth that they couldn’t get anywhere near the Bunny. Meanwhile Josh updates Freddie on Vince’s investment in his solar panels. Freddie declares Vince is on the verge of investing in him, too, though later Vince tempers Freddie’s enthusiasm. He assures Elizabeth he’ll set Freddie straight if he thinks he’s punching above his weight.
David’s insistent it’s a no to Vince’s investment in the solar panels. Elizabeth tries to win him round, unsuccessfully. Vince shrugs breezily, but frustrated Elizabeth can’t understand David and Ruth’s reticence. Vince explains the Brookfield Archers don’t necessarily see him like she does. He counsels leaving it to him. He’ll handle this one himself.
