It’s the Ambridge community picnic. Fallon recounts the difficulty around the logistics of judging the perfect pudding competition. Natasha agrees the whole process must have been tiring for Fallon. They chat about Natasha and Tom’s move to April Cottage, until Fallon’s called into action once again due to an errant child.
Jim catches up with Jazzer at the croquet game. He tries to return to the subject of Jazzer’s departure from Greenacres. They’re interrupted by Lilian, who’s excited they’re about to announce the result of the Unsung Hero vote. To Jim’s astonishment, he’s the winner. Initially overwhelmed, he takes the opportunity to make an impromptu speech about the value of true friendship, and dedicates his award to the ones he’ll miss when they’re gone. Jazzer gets the reference, and is choked up. Close on the heels of this comes the reveal of Natasha as the winner of the perfect pudding competition. Chelsea’s pleased about Jim – she’d voted for him. Lilian reckons he must have been campaigning, but Chelsea assures her that’s not so. He’s not like that, unlike Lilian.
Jim isn’t at all keen for the next part of his prize: posing on a throne for a press photo. Jazzer bails him out by suggesting Natasha takes his place. Jim and Fallon are both grateful for Jazzer’s neat solution, and Natasha enjoys her moment in front of the camera. Fallon pledges the first portion of Natasha’s prizewinning dessert free to Jazzer. Jim wonders meaningfully what he’d do without Jazzer, musing pensively that he’s about to find out.
