Hector hosts a reunion with his old, very old, Regimental colleagues. There are only a few of them left and both he and Molly are particularly pleased when their old friend Toad also sows up. He was best man at their wedding and is Hector's best friend from the war years. It turns out Toad has a somewhat roguish background. much to Hector and Molly's delight, and is actually on the lam. With two policeman on the estate keeping their eyes open for him to appear, they have to find a way to get him out and safely back to Marbella where he lives. Lexie meanwhile has a problem when she accidentally damages a painting worth £20,000 that was on loan for the reunion. When Stella checks, she finds that their insurance won't cover it but it is the ever resourceful Toad who provides the solution to their problem. Stella and Lexie continue pursue Archie.
