Will talks to Lynda about his pottery stall for the fete. She’s admiring of his new hobby. Will’s sorry Lynda’s refused Oliver’s offer to help fund the fete. Lynda insists she can’t get over her disappointment with Oliver about how he handled the Grey Gables closure. Will continues to defend Oliver, pointing out he paid staff out of his own pocket. Lynda acknowledges this, but declares they were a family, and Oliver let them go. Will promises her he had no choice. Lynda goes to see Oliver, who’s building a shelving unit for Will’s pottery stall, and relents. She appreciates his generosity of spirit, and accepts his offer. Oliver’s delighted. Will approaches with some of his ceramic pieces. Lynda attempts to hide her opinion.
Tracy’s nervous about her induction day at the chicken factory. Jazzer’s not happy about her working there, or juggling two jobs, but Tracy points out it’s better paid than her cleaning work. Jazzer wishes he could get enough hours to fund them both, but Tracy reminds him they’re a team. Her supervisor Gemma shows her the ropes and soon has her down as a quick learner. Keen Tracy spots a safety hazard, which doesn’t go down well with her new boss. Oblivious Tracy reports later how nice everyone seems. Jazzer’s prepared a dinner of chicken nuggets, and as they banter Jazzer reckons it’s good to see Tracy laughing. Perhaps this job won’t be so bad after all.
