A group of farmers are hunting for a dog, which has killed some of their sheep, when one of them, Richard Ealham, gets hit by a shot. Most likely suspect is Jeff Kean, who has just found out that his wife Sheila is having an affair with Ealham. There is great demand for the famous Aidensfield buns, but Bill Dyson is the only one, who knows the recipe, and he does not want to give it to his sons, who runs the bakery, because he has become senile, but do not get along with each other. Instead he trusts it to Greengrass in a clear moment just in case he should forget it one day. Gina gets a letter from her uncle, which says that he will not be able to return to the pub anymore and that he will give up his license.
