- Mrs Fielding's husband is in hospital.
- Mrs Fielding's husband dies.
Mrs Fielding is very depressed and sits down sadly on the sofa. Shane offers to get her a drink, but she doesn't want anything.
MRS FIELDING: I can't believe he's gone.
She says that nothing prepared her for it. Shane sympathises. Mrs Fielding says yesterday he was getting better - they even said he could come home. She starts to cry.
The telephone rings and Shane answers it. It's the office, but Mrs Fielding says she can't talk. The phone rings again and it's the office again. Shane tells them to ring back later. He suggests Mrs Fielding goes to have a lie down while he takes care of everything.
Lucy comes in from school. Apparently Jimmy Bentley tried to kiss her. But she kicked him in the shin(!) She said it was like being kissed by a cheese grater because the boy had braces on his teeth(!)
Lucy has borrowed some binoculars from school. She zooms in on the strainer Helen is using. Helen suggests that she goes and finds something else to look at.
Lucy goes to the front window and puts the binoculars up to her eyes. She sees Daphne coming up the driveway.
Daphne gets to the door and Lucy opens it. She explains about the binoculars for the school project.
Helen offers Daphne a cup of tea - she's been shopping. Lucy explains that she has to observe everything and make a note of it. Daphne says she remembers doing a bird-watching project, and one on countries around the world. Lucy says she's doing a project on Japan, and Daphne says she has some photos - she's been there. She says she might be able to find Lucy a kimono if she comes over after school tomorrow. Lucy is thrilled.
Daphne asks Helen how Maria is. Helen tells her about Shane's job. Daphne says that Terry and Shane are an item and Helen suspects Daphne is jealous.
Shane has made himself a cup of tea and a sandwich - it's 9.30pm. Mrs Fielding comes in and he offers her a sandwich. She looks quite touched.
Max and Maria are going through the order and Max is waiting impatiently for Shane to come home.
Shane is talking things through with Mrs Fielding - she can't get her husband's face out of her head. She says he was the most wonderful man she'd ever known. She looks at his photo and tells Shane they were married for ten years. When they got married, people said she only married him for his money. But it wasn't true - it didn't matter to her. They were very happy. Dan was going to retire at 60 so they could spend more times together. She gets angry and says that Dan worked so hard, and for nothing - tomorrow would have been his 60th birthday.
She tells Shane that Dan was in an accident - an 18 year old kid drove into them. It crippled him for life.
Shane says that Mrs Fielding shouldn't be on her own, but she says she doesn't get lonely. She doesn't have any other friends, anyway.
Shane telephones Danny and tells him he won't be coming home tonight.
Danny passes the message on and Max immediately starts ranting. He says that Shane is knocking around with too many married women. Maria is surprised to hear that Terry is married. She isn't too concerned though. Max in turn is surprised to hear that Terry has moved in with Des.
Fielding Mansion, the following morning
Shane has slept on the couch and Mrs Fielding wakes him up. She thanks him for staying. Shane apologises for listening to other people's opinions of her - as a superbitch. Mrs Fielding says that it was all deserved. But she's decided to sell the business - without Dan, it means nothing. She's going to move up North. Shane tells her he hopes she'll be happy.
Danny and Maria are wondering where Shane is.
Mrs Fielding thanks Shane for everything - they probably won't see each other again. He says her husband was very lucky to have her. She kisses him on the cheek.
Lucy is still looking through her binoculars at the window. She suddenly shouts that there's a naked man walking down the street. But it's just a joke. Shortly afterwards Lucy really does see something suspicious - a man with a gun in a car. Helen thinks she's crying wolf.
A man gets out of a car and walks purposefully up to Des's house.
Lucy hands Helen the binoculars, but the man has gone. Helen won't believe her about the man. But Lucy is so insistent Helen does look out of the window.
Garden of the Robinsons
Helen has sent Lucy out to play with Basil.
The man is trying to break in round the back. He succeeds.
Lucy bounces her ball over the fence and goes into Des's back garden to retrieve it. She sees the door open and goes into the house to see Daphne. The man quickly hides behind a screen.
Lucy walks around and the man hides behind the sofa. As Lucy gets closer, the man sidles away.
Just then, Daphne comes in. Lucy tells her the back door was open so she just came in. Daphne says that maybe Terri forgot to shut it. The man is under the living room table and looks interested to hear Terry's name.
Daphne goes to get the Japanese photos for Lucy. The man moves to the side of the central pillar, holding the gun.
