Adam talks about village gossip around slurry, but Brian has bigger issues on his mind. Brian asks about Ian’s career plans and Adam wonders what’s really going on - is it Alice? It’s Chris, who wants to take the family to the cleaners and Brian hopes Adam can help - could the remaining partners raise the funds to buy Alice’s share in the business? Adam realises that the upcoming valuation will take everything into account, which made Brian think of Adam and Ian and the need for everyone to chip in. But Adam is resistant – he’s already making plans with Ian.
Tracy has an interview today for a new job in kitchen telesales, via Lily, but she’s worried about not understanding the questions. Reassuring Jazzer does some practice with Tracy. The interviewer breaks the ice and gets Tracy to talk a bit about herself – being a single mum has armed her for any challenge. The interviewer realises she knows Tracy and introduces herself as Tam Brownlow, who sat next to Tracy at school. Gently grilled on specific questions, Tracy struggles and the interview breaks down, with Tracy apologising. On the phone to Jazzer, Tracy’s upset and feels like she’s not good enough - she could tell what Tam was really thinking. Jazzer tries to encourage Tracy, but she lets rip – Tam Brownlow has it all, whereas Tracy has to borrow her sister’s clothes just to turn up to an interview.
