With no sign of Adil, whose check-out is overdue, Roy and Kathy try to track down Oliver. Tracy arrives for work and congratulates Kathy on her fundraising as the Borsetshire Bunny. When Kathy learns they don’t have Adil’s card details she heads straight for his room. Adil opens the door and explains that he was in an important meeting. Oliver appears and asks Kathy to gather the staff in the ballroom. Tracy speculates about what’s going on. She reckons Oliver is going to announce filming is going to take place at Grey Gables. To everyone’s surprise, Oliver announces that he’s sold a 60% share of Grey Gables and that he’ll be stepping down from the day-to-day running of the hotel. Adil Shah, the new owner’s representative, will replace him. The staff’s shock is compounded when Oliver says the hotel will be closing imminently and everyone will be made redundant. Afterwards, Adil tries to placate Oliver who feels bad for what he’s just done. He decides to show his face rather than hide away in Adil’s room. Roy and Kathy try to absorb the news. Although they are all reeling there is still a hotel to run. Teary Tracy returns and thanks Roy for covering the reception desk for her. She’s worried about how she’ll cope without her Grey Gables job. On Oliver’s arrival, Tracy departs again. Roy scoffs when Oliver say he is also upset. He tries to explain he had to do something to protect Caroline’s legacy. Roy replies that Oliver’s destroying it rather than protecting it.
