Oliver wants to drop a birthday card round to Tracy, but Brad puts him off and says he’ll take it. Tracy’s still mad at Oliver for putting Brad out of the job at Grange Farm. Oliver wishes he and Tracy could be friends again. When he asks if Brad’s found another job, Brad says he’s just had an interview, but won’t say what for in case he jinxes it. Oliver’s concerned when Brad says he’s no longer doing the maths summer school. Brad explains that his mum’s struggle with debt has made him realise how unimportant it is. When Tom worries about handing over his Bridge Farm tasks, Pats says they’ll cope without him. Tom admits he knows where he is with farm work, but he hasn’t a clue about babies. Pat reminds him she’s only a phone call away. She can’t wait to meet her new grandchildren. At the hospital Natasha’s feeling anxious about tomorrow’s caesarean, on top of coping with the twins when they’re born. Natasha’s mum Caitlin rings and Tom’s unsettled when Natasha says Caitlin’s coming to stay with them on Saturday, earlier than expected. She’ll be there when they bring the babies home. Natasha explains knowing her mum will be there makes all the difference; she needs her mum. Later Tom shares his concerns about Caitlin staying to Pat - he had a vision of him and Natasha alone with their little family. But Pat’s pragmatic, saying it will be great for them to have an extra pair of hands. And Pat will still be there if he needs her.
