On the eve of Remembrance Day, George is asked to host a Japanese trade delegation. Knowing how the community will feel, George asks Jack to come to the reception in the hope that the approval of a former Japanese POW might help deal with any ill feeling. When Sarah and Regina cross paths at the reception, Regina is openly hostile and Sarah realises she is up against an all too familiar and formidable foe — anti-Semitism. While James and Olivia continue to grow closer, Anna's prolonged absence from Ash Park has Gino fearing that their relationship is over — unaware that she is with Carolyn awaiting the results of pregnancy tests.
