Jake is upset when Esther berates him for not explaining before that Layla was his sister and the vicious Layla, failing to gain Jake's sympathy, sends an anonymous letter, exposing her brother's former alcoholism. Ethel and Gilbert want him sacked but, after a hung vote, the not so dusty vicar persuades Layla to redeem herself and save Jake's job. Grace and Kyle run away and Esther and Michael locate them at an old holiday haunt - Michael wants reconciliation but Esther explains that she is now a free woman. At the choir finals Esther is shocked when All the Small Things try to sabotage Michael's singers by heckling them, fleeing to a station platform, where her choir, and Jake, join her for a rousing performance of Beethoven's Ode to Joy.
