Val and Pollard’s gallery opening doesn’t
go as planned
7:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Pollard (Chris Chittell) is terrified as Glynis (Christine Cox) turns
up at the gallery opening with a photographer from the local paper.
He desperately tries to prevent her from finding out where the paintings
came from until Rodney (Patrick Mower) takes pleasure in divulging
the information. How will Glynis react when she learns the truth
about Pollard’s underhand antics?
Steph (Lorraine Chase) is reduced to tears as Turner (Richard Thorp)
reluctantly asks her to leave him and Shelly (Carolyn Pickles) alone.
She pleads that she is only trying to make amends but agrees to leave
the village if that is what he really wants.
Elsewhere, Tom (Ken Farrington) is livid when he finds out that Jimmy
(Nick Miles) has outbid the Kings for a contract. Tom angrily confronts
his son but Jimmy insists that business is business.

| There are bad moods, and then there are Val’s bad moods.
Unfortunately for Bob he walks straight in on one this morning
as Val prepares for the gallery opening. She says she’s stressed
as Pollard has done nothing to help as he’s been ‘entertaining’ Glynis. ‘Jealous
are we?’ Bob asks, and then wished he didn’t for Val
gives him a look that could strike him down in a second!
She arrives at the exhibition though and Pollard is there getting things ready.
Val lets him know how much she disapproved of him taking Glynis out, ‘Explain
yourself you treacherous pig.’ But Glynis walks in and Pollard again has
to steer her away from the paintings for fear that she will soon guess where
Meanwhile, Turner goes to see Steph to ‘clear things up’. He tells
her that she needs to leave him and Shelly alone now. Steph goes on the defensive
and accuses him of ditching his daughter and trying to get rid of her. Turner
denies it, but Steph says that while it may not be the case for him, it is for
She tells him (once again) that she just wants things to be right between the
three of them and that she’s been trying really hard. But she stands down
and agrees to leave ‘if it’ll make Shelly happy’.
Turner later tells Shelly the news, and unsurprisingly she’s delighted.
But Turner admits how rotten he feels, ‘She’s my daughter and I feel
like I’ve driven her out.’ He tells Shelly that Steph is sorry for
what she’s done, ‘if only you’d realise that’. Shelly
replies that Steph is doing them a favour by leaving. ‘Is that all you
have to say about it?’ he asks, she replies: ‘What else is there?’ before
Back at the gallery and the sale has kicked off and everything seems to be running
smoothly… until Glynis turns up again, with a photographer! Rodney arrives
shortly after and strikes up a conversation with her, much to the fear of Val
Standing very close together, Rodney tells Glynis his concerns about the paintings
and eventually the pair put two and two together and realise just what Pollard’s
been up to.
At the end of the evening Pollard and Val are delighted that the sale has netted
them £40K! Glynis congratulates him on the amount and tells Pollard that
the local charities would be so pleased with the donations. Pollard is confused
and then realises that Glynis knows exactly where the paintings came from – you’ve
Elsewhere and Matthew tells Tom that they have been outbid for a contract by
none other than Jimmy! Tom is furious, but Matthew tells him to leave it this
time, ‘we’ll hammer him next time’.
But in the pub later Tom spots Jimmy and can’t help but confront his son
about the contract. ‘You’re stabbing your family in the back,’ he
tells Jimmy. ‘Well maybe I’m using the same knife that I’ve
just taken out of my back,’ Jimmy retorts. Good reply! He tells his father
that business is business before he wonders off.
