The battle for attention is still ongoing between Maisie and Nathan. The eldest son gets Pollard on side after filling him in on his plans for the lake and hopes that the councillor will cut some corners for him with the planning permission. Of course Mark is thrilled with the tactics his son has taken but Maisie's nose is put out of joint. Jimmy calls an audience to the woolpack to witness Nicola dressed and ready to head to a Swiss bank to withdrawl Mr Kings supposed fortunes. However, it's not what it looks like and she is shocked when their trip is actually a haulage job. What a fool!
