The Change. Image shows left to right: Pig Man (Jerome Flynn), Linda (Bridget Christie)
Linda receives an explosive visit from her sister Siobhain, but Linda has bigger things to worry about.

Further details

Linda receives some unexpected and emotional information from Pig Man, and an explosive visit from her sister Siobhain, who's furious about Linda's decision to have time away from Steve and the kids. Long-supressed frustrations bubble up between the sisters, and Linda finds herself finally taking a stand against the domineering Siobhain.

The Eel Sisters take matters into their own hands with the proposed development through the forest, buying the community some time. The Verderer, meanwhile, is taking no chances and has decamped to the beloved oak tree to keep the developers at bay for as long as he can.

Ryan makes a big decision about his unexpected inheritance, and the Eel sisters now turn their attention to the forthcoming Eel Festival and who they will crown the inaugural Eel Queen.
