Laurel worries about her relationship with Ashley
7:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Matthew (Matt Healy) offers Louise (Emily Symons) and Terry (Billy
Hartman) a hand going through the B&B books and Louise later thanks
him with a free pint in the Woolpack.
Matthew suggestively tells Louise that he could help her with more
than just the accounts but picking up on his proposition she firmly
insists him that she is attached. Matthew bluffs that she’s got
the wrong end of the stick but Louise is clearly ill at ease.
Over at the vicarage, Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) and Ashley (John
Middleton) cosy up on the sofa until they are interrupted by Ethan
(Liam O’Brien). Uncomfortable in his presence, Laurel leaves
and she later glumly tells Nicola (Nicola Wheeler) that things aren’t
going well between her the vicar. Could their relationship be drawing
to a close thanks to the bishop’s disapproval?

| Chas tells Denzel that she doesn’t want to be pulling
pints for the rest of her life (but you’re so good at it,
Chas!). Denzel tells her that she’s intelligent, but reminds
her that she has a problem taking orders. ‘You could never
be in the army waking up at 5am with orders being barked at you.’ Denzel
should know our Chas well enough now not to tell her she can’t
do something… she’ll just go ahead and do it!
Speaking of orders, Chloe comes into the pub and makes her own one to Chas, ‘Stay
away from Carl, he’s mine.’ She then tells Denzel: ‘I’d
watch her if I was you, I wouldn’t trust her as far as I could throw her.’ Look
who’s talking now Chloe!
Outside the pub and Matthew asks Carl if he wants to go for a drink. Carl reminds
him that it’s still early, but then twigs that Matthew doesn’t really
want the drink as much as he wants to be served by the beautiful blond barmaid – Louise!
He’s disappointed when she’s not in there though and decides to head
round to the B&B to give her and Terry some spreadsheets.
Meanwhile, Turner asks Betty if Steph can have Sunday lunch with them. Betty
thinks it’s a bit too soon, but Turner tells her that he’s realised
in the last few weeks that life is short and fragile and that he no longer believes
in wasting time, ‘I don’t want to lose any more people in my life,’ he
tells her. She agrees Steph can join them.
Ashley and Laurel are enjoying a lunch of their own and snuggle up on the sofa
watching a movie. It’s not long though before things get heated between
them as they passionately snog like they’re in a movie of their own! That
is until Ethan walks in and gives them such a disapproving grunt that Laurel
decides it’s best to leave.
The dinner at Betty’s though is going very well, after a bit of a rocky
start. All three of them seem to put their foot in it by referring to the past
or to prison food, but they all end up having a laugh about it all. While Steph
is washing up Betty admits to Turner that she’s warming towards his daughter
once again, as much as Betty can be warm towards anyone that is!
Elsewhere and Colleen meets Carl in the pub, but she quickly admonishes him for
not telling her that Chloe was pregnant. She suggests the three of them have
dinner together so she can get to know Chloe better considering she’s now
going to be a big part of Carl’s life.
Back at the pub and Louise buys Matthew a drink for helping her and Terry. ‘I
can still help you more,’ he tells her. She asks him if he’s still
talking about business, but he simply replies, 'Bear it in mind.'
Later though he tells her he’s worried that she’ll be confined when
she takes on the B&B and tells her she needs wining and dining. Thinking
that he’s about to ask her out (which he is), Louise interrupts him and
tells him she’s with Terry. But he tells her she’s got her wires
crossed and that he was actually about to say that she and Terry should get out
more! Louise apologises but Matthew plays it cool and leaves.
Steph meanwhile is in euphoric mood following her successful dinner with her
dad. She tells Ethan, ‘I’ve had the best day ever with my dad.’ But
Ethan, being the usual grump that he is, tells her not to rush things. Oh shut
