Lilian chats to Adil about his palm reading duties at the upcoming fete. But she’s concerned when he appears not to have done his homework and mixes up everyone’s personal details. Adil worries that they’re the ‘knowns’ – but what about the random strangers who turn up on the day? Lilian decides she needs to be his glamorous assistant; she can give Adil a few pointers before the customers go in. For the rest he’ll just have to look for visual clues. Adil starts to feel a little more positive about it all. When Joy appears, Lilian tells Adil that although she’s one of the more sociable women in the village, she’s hard to read. So Lilian invites Joy to join Adil under the guise of canvassing opinion about Grey Gables. But Joy finds out rather more information from Adil than he does from her.
Natasha and Tom adjust to life without Caitlin. When Pat asks Tom if he wants a hand with the farm work, he suggests visiting Natasha to see how she’s doing. Natasha’s relieved to see Pat – it’s not just the babies who are causing her stress. Her dad’s mental health is also on her mind. And now the organisers of the food and music festival ‘CotStravaGanza’ have been in touch. They need a replacement juice supplier for this weekend. Natasha says there’s no way she can do it and assistant Louise is busy this weekend. Pat says there is one other possibility – she could do it. Natasha thinks it’s a great idea.
