Kenneth and Liam bring a prostrate Joyce breakfast in bed. Promising to find an antidote for the mystery injections he gave her the previous night, Kenneth heads off to seek advice from his old friend Mr Wu.

Liam receives a surprise visit from his mum - Les's ex Gloria. Gloria wants Liam to come home to the UK, and tries to bribe him and Les to get her own way. Glynn announces that he is taking Jacqueline out for a game of pelota. When one of the players get injured, Jacqueline finds herself subbing and reveals a hidden talent.

The Oracle is hoping to impress the other guests and staff by walking barefoot across hot coals, and catches Terri's eye in the process. Kenneth makes it back to the Solana with a cure for Joyce, getting her back on her feet with the help of a local vet.
