Colin reckons that he will lose and does so by one vote to Miles. This gives the Mollisons the deciding vote on the future of the community hall and Miles predictably backs his father though he defends Samantha against Shirley at Howard's birthday party, where Arf snaps Howard having sex with business partner Mo. The result ends up on the Ghost's website. Krystle is shocked to see Terri back on the drugs and flees the house with Robbie. Something very bad happens as a result, for which several people feel responsible though they must get on with their lives. The Ghost's identity, though revealed to viewers, goes undetected to most of the village. Written by don @ minifie-1 See less
