Chas convinces Brenda that Gennie is working at the vets, and for a short time, she does work there. On her way to a call out, Gennie runs over and kills a sheep. After this incident, her mother again tries to persuade her to come home, but Gennie refuses, saying she felt she like she fitted in with the Dingles.

Gennie tells Chas about her crush on Nikhil, which leads to a scuffle. However, Chas dumps Nikhil for Gennie's sake.
When Gennie finally confesses her love for Nikhil to him, he rejects her. He fights with Nicky and Gennie tells him to stay away from them. But he realises it is his fault they are all leaving the factory and rejecting what he is asking and he feels really badly about it. He's not being very intelligent with his actions. He is rubbing people up the wrong way but I think because he's not really like that at heart.
He's trying to be strong, trying to show a hard face but deep down he's very soft. When someone feels very insecure and at risk of having something taken away, they get their back up and behave with a certain aggression or energy to try to maintain a certain status or control.
It's not black and white and it's not simple.
If they get too much, however, he returns to his spiritual home north of the Border. Despite growing up in Derbyshire, he is something of an adopted Scot. He remains a frequent visitor. It's that thing once you become an honorary Scot you can never really lose it. It's where I felt most at home and that is the truth.
Tom keeps falling off on his cleats but we are doing all right. We are pushing 50 miles every time we ride just now, heading for It's a wonderful job. Who knows what the future holds but I am very happy playing Nikhil.
