2 Dec to 7 December

Poor Jennifer – despite being a terrible snob, it’s hard not to feel sorry for her as the new owners of Home Farm starts making unreasonable demands. Lilian, for her part is furious, while Brian attempts to arrange a compromise. But it soon becomes clear that Jennifer is struggling to hold things together.

David is dominating proceedings at the Canterbury Tales rehearsals thanks to his risk assessment, and Linda is struggling to control her cast. Just when it looks as though things are coming together, disaster strikes…

Phoebe has a radical suggestion to get Roy’s life back on track (and hopefully put a stop to it to his Eeyore like moping). And Helen is looking forward to some father-daughter bonding as she and Tony prepare to head to France to pick their new cattle.

9 Dec to 14 December

Lynda is being surprisingly stoical as David delivers yet more bad news following the latest setback with The Canterbury Tales. But Ben suspects she is more upset than she is letting on. At Lower Loxley, Elizabeth continues to act erratically and makes a strange decision that sparks concern. And when a familiar face shows up to put the cat among the pigeons, Lily is left with some serious explaining to do.

Brian, meanwhile, is continuing to throw all his efforts into finding a new home for him and Jenny – and with the clock ticking, he enlists the help of Lilian. Which sounds like a recipe for disaster. After all, Lilian’s only requirements for a home or to have a hot tub and be near an off-licence.

Thanks Gump. Lots of possibilities there.

The 🔮 says it's all shaping up to be THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVAH!!

MikeUniformMike Sat 01-Dec-18 13:33:14

Roy will be the new LoLo mgr

Miscible Sat 01-Dec-18 14:38:57

No new cast members, so the Geraldine replacement is presumably either a silent character or someone we know.

Bittermints Sat 01-Dec-18 18:18:18

Thanks, Gump!

witchmountain Sun 02-Dec-18 07:26:08

Thanks Gump! I’m so ready for Russ to be dispatched with

Bekabeech Sun 02-Dec-18 09:55:12

I was expecting the new manager to be Oliver but he's not listed.

MikeUniformMike Sun 02-Dec-18 12:30:15

Maybe Russ could be the new manager.

16 Dec to 21 Dec
Tensions are flaring again at Lower Loxley as Lily continues to carry the burden and take out her frustrations on Russ. But the main shock comes later when Elizabeth has a terrifying encounter – who will come to her rescue?

Justin is turning his nose up when the Grundys ask him a favour, but it’s Emma who soon finds herself in it up to her neck. At Home Farm, Brian is determined not to be beaten and, pretty soon, there may be a ray of hope glinting for the Aldridges – but at what cost?

Elsewhere, a Christmas shopping trip takes an unexpected turn for Helen, while Pat is thrown into a panic by an early Christmas gesture and is forced to take drastic action.

Ghost of Nigel? Thanks, Gump!

HunkyDory69 Wed 05-Dec-18 23:24:06

Brilliant, thanks Gump!

Miscible Wed 05-Dec-18 23:46:57

One of Freddie's associates getting revenge?

witchmountain Thu 06-Dec-18 05:19:08

Thanks Gump. Can’t think what Elizabeth’s terrifying encounter could be, although there has been a very interesting series on this week about delusions and she doesn’t seem far off that state!

Mootsie Thu 06-Dec-18 11:12:31

Who is Lee?

PrincessFiorimonde Thu 06-Dec-18 11:52:33

Having lurked on the last couple of threads, I'm just sidling in to join the new one. With thanks to Gump.

Mootsie, Lee is the karate teacher.

Mootsie Thu 06-Dec-18 15:39:58

Oh Yes, Thanks. I'd forgotten about him already. grin

NetballHoop Thu 06-Dec-18 16:52:21

@Miscible That's what I thought too. I can't remember what happened to Freddie's "friend" Ellis. I can imagine him turning up would be a bit terrifying.

witchmountain Thu 06-Dec-18 20:46:02

I like Lee!

Colabottle10 Thu 06-Dec-18 23:24:53

Could this be the fire at LoLo that was foretold?
