Munro. Meg says she heard the motel was short staffed and suggests she comes in tomorrow to help out on reception.
Meg and Lloyd Munro sit in reception and have a pre-dinner drink. Meg tells Lloyd that it has done her good to
get out of the cottage. She says she is glad to see Tish but she wishes David Hunter were here. She says she blamed
David for what happened and pushed him away and she doesn't know how to make it up to him. Lloyd says if they are true
friends then they won't have to make up.

and he has an appointment tomorrow.
Meg and Lloyd Munro come out of the restaurant after dinner and have coffee in reception. Robert Matthews wanders
over to them and says he was talking to Sandy and he thought she might want to see the cottage. Meg tells him that she
has been in touch with an estate agent and the cottage is being put up for public auction to the highest bidder.
Diane Parker asks the man how she knows he is really a policeman. P.C. Steve Cater shows her his identification.
Godfrey King comes to the motel and meets Bill Farrow in reception. He mutters that he should never have let himself
be talked into this. "Have some coffee and we'll talk about it," says Bill Farrow. "If you don't mind, I want
to go home," says Godfrey King, and walks out of the main door followed by Bill Farrow.

She shows him the book on psychiatry on the desk. "Oh no," says Lloyd.
Lloyd Munro goes to the cottage where he finds Meg. Meg says he has been acting under false pretences. She
says she really thought he wanted to help her but all the time he was just treating her as one of his patients. "How
many people knew you were a psychiatrist? Everyone except me," says Meg. Lloyd tells her that no one knew except
Tish who remembered she had seen him somewhere before, then found his book amongst her collection. "I'd like you to
leave now. And you can tell Tish and Sandy to stay away too," says Meg.

given money to get rid of me," says Benny.
Diane goes to Heywood Farm with Benny and talks to Ed Lawton alone. She tells Ed Lawton that he has no right to
throw Benny out after all he has done. Ed tells her that Tom Read is giving Benny a chance in life and the cheque Tom
Read gave him was as compensation for losing Benny. Diane calls Benny in and tells him that her and Ed have talked things
over and they think it's for the best that he goes to work for Tom Read. She tells Benny that if he doesn't like it
he can come back and everyting will be the same as before. "Heywood Farm is my home and my business. At least
I thought it was," says Benny.
P.C. Steve Cater goes to see Diane at her flat. He says he was talking to P.C. Frank Tyler and he said Diane was
the one who turned Jackie Barrett over to the police. P.C. Cater tells Diane that this prowler might be someone trying
to get their own back for that.
