Bernice makes a shock reappearance in the village. Outside The Woolpack, she composes herself before walking in through the back door. Diane is stunned to see her daughter, who promptly breaks down in tears. Diane is sympathetic as a teary Bernice tells her how her marriage is crumbling. Ashley is shocked to see his ex and wonders how long she is staying. At the same time, Nicola is not impressed by her sister's return and Diane is left feeling suspicious when Bernice suddenly changes her mood as she walks into the bar. Meanwhile, Scarlett leaves for the airport and Nicola thanks her for everything she has done for Jimmy. Later, Jimmy is worried when Charity collects her files, telling him that she's taking her contracts with her and his business will fail without her. Jimmy feels burdened when Nicola tells him that he hasn't got much of a choice but to get Charity to agree to a deal that suits everyone. He is then left angry when a client wants to work with Charity, not him. As the day continues, a triumphant Charity makes a deal with Jimmy - they split the business 50/50. Jimmy is left wondering if he's done the right thing. Elsewhere, Paddy and Rhona are interviewing for a new vet, but are not hopeful about the applications. Brett arrives late for his interview and Paddy feels threatened when the newcomer steps in to help out at the busy surgery. Rhona offers Brett the job, wanting him to start tomorrow. Paddy can't think of a reasonable objection. Also, Zak's visit to his psychiatrist leaves him feeling positive about how things are going, while Edna is worried about Tootsie's health and her finances.
