Review :-

Jack attempts to reconcile his family but suceeds only in making Andy disown the Sugden name.

There's something fishy about Simon and Carlos' attempts to get Marlon back in the kitchen.

Pearl challenges Rodney to a night of poker.

Andy, Katie, Robert and Jack and Diane

Andy disowns his family

Aware that they are not welcome to stay at the B & B on a permanent basis, Robert (Karl Davies) and Katie (Sammy Winward) move into a caravan, giving Turner (Richard Thorp) no explanation as to where they are going.

Desperate to repair his broken family, Jack (Clive Hornby) invites Andy (Kelvin Fletcher) round for dinner, not mentioning that Robert will be there too. Andy is furious when Katie turns up, incensed he’s been played for a fool.

Jack later apologises to Andy who retaliates by telling him that he no longer wants to be part of his family, determined that from now on he is a Hopwood, not a Sugden.

Simon (Dale Meeks) and Carlos (Gary Turner) desperately try to reinstall Marlon’s (Mark Charnock) passion for cooking, but their efforts prove pointless, as he seems to have no interest in reviving his culinary skills.

Later, at home Paddy (Dominic Brunt) complements Marlon on his cooking as he tucks into food prepared the day before. Marlon is initially unconvinced, but when he tries his own dish he agrees it is actually very good. Could this be the breakthrough Marlon needs to entice him back to work?

Elsewhere, Pearl (Meg Johnson) has a flutter on the horses and admits to Rodney (Patrick Mower) that she has lost a couple of hundred pounds. She also confesses she is partial to a game of poker and they arrange a game later in the week. Could Pearl be setting herself up for a fall?

ITV.COM The Peacemaker Sunday 16.05.04
Jack’s attempt to build bridges by inviting his two sons round for lunch goes horribly wrong, as his eagerness to sort things out only manages to drive the brothers even further apart. When Andy refuses Jack's invite but later changes his mind about going - realising what Jack means to him - he is furious when he finds Robert has brought Katie along, determined that Jack must accept them as a couple. Livid Andy attacks Robert before storming out. When Jack goes to apologise Andy tells him that from now on he’s a Hopwood, not a Sugden.
Despite their best efforts Carlos and Simon have not been able to get Marlon, who still shows no enthusiasm for the culinary arts, back to work. Later, at home Paddy complements Marlon on his cooking as he tucks into food Marlon made the day before. Marlon is initially unconvinced, but when he tries his own dish he agrees it is actually very good. Realising that he’s great chef Marlon returns to the Woolpack to take over the festival of fish from Carlos.
While Nicola is disappointed to find that Simon does not seem to harbour any jealous thoughts whatsoever about the return of Carlos, her former fiancé, Laurel is surprised by Ashley’s hostile reaction to the latin lover who had an affair with his ex-wife. When Carlos accidentally spills a drink over Laurel the man of the cloth leaves the chef in no doubts about what he will do if he lays a finger on her.
