Julia Webb boasts about her award winning hanging baskets to Mrs McCarthy as Ben Webb shows the station inspector, Deepak around the train station. Pandora, the new cleaner at St Mary's, gets off the train and immediately frustrates Mrs McCarthy. Deepak leaves a poster for Ben and as Julia pins it on the noticeboard, Ben collapses from a heart attack, reading: 'Notice of Closure'. During a village hall meeting, Buddy Arnold tells the crowd that he'll be running a replacement bus service when the train station closes but Julia can't contain her anger and throws water in his face. Holding a fete at the station in an attempt to save it, Julia orders Ben off to the washroom to smarten his appearance, but when he returns he is in a much worse state; stuffed inside a trunk with his head dripping with blood.
