The Archers: 2/3/2012
Clarrie receives a surprise visit and David issues an ultimatum.
Ruth tells Clarrie that Pip’s had to put the brakes on her ‘celebrity lamb’ project; it’s inappropriate whilst there’s so much uncertainty over the Schmallenberg virus. David tells Ruth that if she can’t live without the cows, she needs to come up with a plan and tell him how they can afford to live with them. He needs an answer soon.
Adam visits Tony, and tells Brian that it’s going to be a while before Tony’s back to milking. Brian thinks there’s a lesson for them all. He wants Adam to bury the hatchet and make up. It’s not that simple for Adam but when Brian asks him to shake hands and declare a truce, for the sake of the family, Adam reluctantly agrees.
Tony needs to take it easy. Pat’s happy for him to sit there and be waited on. It’s good to have him home.
Helen tells Pat that they’re managing by the skin of their teeth, and it’s such a crucial time. Pat’s going to be busy looking after Tony, so they need to bring in extra help. Someone who knows what they’re doing. Pat realises she means Clarrie.
Clarrie thanks Helen for coming round to tell her about Tony, and tentatively asks if she can visit him. Helen interrupts Clarrie, and tells her why she’s there. Clarrie can hardly believe it. Of course she’ll come back.
