The intrigue surrounding the pub continues when Seth (Stan Richards) hitches a lift with Stella (Stephanie Schonfield) and discovers she's going to visit her business adviser.

On Wednesday, the pub issue comes to a head and Stella resolves it in spectacular fashion. Good for Bernice is all I will say ...
