We've seen the new outdoor set this week and I think they've spruced up some of the interior ones, too. The ladies' in the pub has had a face lift and change around. The loo doors were on the other side of the room last time we were in there.
Faye needs a new bag. They're pretty cheap, really. I think i like Luke so far. Never heard of curing a hangover by hanging upside down. Poor Julie. Small change for charity or save it for the gym? Dev's already trying to sell memberships and Anna has his sales pitch figured out. So what? In anyone's world, 15 pound a month is pretty cheap for a gym membership.
Jenna doesn't seem to be too keen on Lloyd and Andrea's blossoming relationship. They really seem to be setting the Lloyd and Andrea relationship up for a fall, hinting that she actually fancies Steve and he her. But it's been subtle and low key. I do wonder what happened to their night class. Is it over now? It seemed to have dropped off the radar quite suddenly without any final exam or essays due or the like.
Nice touch, Owen revealing a bit of vulnerability telling the story when his wife left him and he had to do what he had to in order to look after his children. Owen's method of revenge was a lot more subtle, making forged invoices for small amounts! But after the way Phelan was winding them up and with all that animostity, I really don't believe they'd all then socialize together in the pub like best mates.
Maybe it was all for show but when most of them knew the real deal, it seemed wrong somehow. Katy didn't know that and she gave him a gobful, giving him even more reason to be patronizing and upping the ante on the whole game. Pushing the deadline forward. Winding up Gary and Owen with trivial tasks.
Eva's getting domestic, making Jason's lunch for him. Jason is gearing up to start the conversion and doesn't want Tony's help. How is he going to get it wired? Don't you need to be a qualified electrician? Also for the plumbing, you probably need to be qualified to do the sort of work that would need doing in this project. Don't think Jason is either of those. It's a lot of work for just one person, too. Even Dev thinks so. Seems unrealistic. Tony will worm his way in there, though, with Eva's pressure tactics, too.
But if everyone would stop mithering Jason, he might get something done. And why are they all expecting miracles on the very first day? I think he knows very well that Tony stole those tools to help him.
Steph's brother, Luke is a qualified mechanic and Tyrone needs help. Sorted, or it soon will be, that's obvious. Tina is so naive and even Steph can see it. I think she could be a really good friend to Tina.
Peter's mind isn't on his work, Carla's whizzing on French caffeine. Tina's also walking around distracted. Tina is telling Steph a lot of intimate details, pretending it's for her friend. Steph might not be that bright but even she could figure it out. I do find it odd that she and Tina would be so affectionate after last week when Tina could barely stand to look at her new roommate. I guess confession is good for the friendship as well as the soul.
You want to ratchet up the pressure even more? Carla's pregnant! Peter doesn't know yet. Carla doesn't think she wants a baby but getting a termination is intimidating, too.
I'm starting to like Sally and Tim together. Yes, he's feckless and yes she's snobby but when she's not on her high horse, they do kind of work. Maddie's sorted out her injuries. (Did they really keep her all night for a few scrapes and bruises?) Sophie wants Maddie to stay over a few nights. Sally doesn't want "vagrants" living there and she knows darn well once Maddie moves in, Sophie will insist she stay. But with Tim backing Sophie, (because Sophie knows Maddie was the one that beat him up) Sally's outnumbered.
Sean went in to book a cab and left without telling Steve when he wanted it. Peter had been smoking a cig, went upstairs and kissed Tina, a non-smoker and she didn't even flinch! Maybe Michelle Keegan is a smoker? I could understand Todd keeping his relationship with Marcus a secret from Sean as a kindness since they used to be together, but only if Todd were serious about Marcus, which he isn't and only if Todd were a truly kind and thoughtful person. Which he's not. Fiz seems to be a bit curious about Marcus' behaviour especially after seeing Todd follow Marcus out from the ginnel.
