The women of Drovers run are no longer a team of four. Kate, after being head hunted by Sandra, is working as overseer at Kinsella's. Jodi, after being fired by Stevie, has gone into business for herself, selling cosmetics, the hard way. Tess and Stevie are managing alone, but only just. Sandra lets slip that she's eager to buy some cattle. Kate, wanting to impress her new boss, tells the Drovers women about the deal although no price is discussed. Tess is interested… the cash would be handy, but Stevie's not keen to sell to Sandra, especially at the price she's offering. It's ridiculously low. But Tess agrees and sells to Sandra.
