Gail The Criminal Mastermind
See what happens when you don’t do as your son suggests and go straight to the police to tell them the truth, Gail? Now Nick sees the bruises on your arm and thinks Joe was beating you but how can you tell him it was when you were struggling to keep him from getting into his boat so he could fake his own death. Like that John Darwin fellow. And everyone saw how well that turned out.
Later, David and Graeme are having a cop of tea, although Graeme suggest they move to the pub.
“I always find that everything is better when seen through the amber glow of a lager lunch,” he says with the wisdom of the ages
Nick pops to ask David about Carla and the factory and her business partner. Graeme fills him in that the business partner is Tony what did the murdering and David thinks Underworld is out of his league.
“You don’t know what kind of league I’m in,” he mutters, leaving us to assume he’s in the frosted tips and trendy stubble businessman’s league. Not enjoying being mocked by David, he puts a bug in his ear about Tina and Jason being engaged.
This causes David, with Graeme in tow, to head over to the Kabin where Tina does indeed confirm but David takes offense that he wasn’t consulted or something. Graeme, classy guy that he is, offers his congratulations.
And it’s back to helping his mother cover up Joe’s disappearance. Gail’s calling the ferry service to Ireland to ask about passenger lists. Before getting out the Dublin white pages to start calling people over there to see if they’ve seen her husband, David asks why she’s doing this.
“Oh, I love him,” she says.
“And he’s probably in a pub in Dublin, laughing at you right now,” he retorts.
“I’m going to stand by him,” she says.
And Tina’s getting harassed by Creepy Rick the Loan Shark, which is seen by Nick who asks Tina what’s going on. She dismisses him but he takes his concerns to Audrey where they compare notes. They agree to confront her, just as soon as Audrey finishes her drink.
When they get there, Gail is sticking by her story that Joe is in Cumbria for a job. But of course they know something isn’t being said. Gail throws them but Audrey refers Gail to Glacia’s previous post about her choice in men.
Sooner or later, of course, Joe’s body is going float to the surface of Lake Windermere, and Gail will once again do what Gail does best: go down to the morgue to identify her dead husbands.
And This Happened
One of Sunita’s aunties used to appear in The Kumars at Number 42.
The aunties are still hanging out with Dev and Sunita and asking Dev about why he’s never home and if his penis still functions and if there will be any children. And did you know Sunita’s cousin is a dancer in Vancouver whose roommate is a fashion designer? Such successful friends he has!
It goes pretty well, well enough to the point where Dev thinks Sunita is no longer acting and he makes a move but is rebuffed.
As Leanne tells Carla that Simon is staying with George over the holidays while Peter is in rehab, Carla thinks rehab would be awful. She sometimes wonders about herself when she has chardonnay withdrawal at half-five. Anyway, she asks about this Nick fellow and is surprised to learn that Leanne and he were once married when he was played by another actor. Leanne warns Carla off him.
Gary’s coming home soon with his new army mate “Quinny”. Anna says they should clean up and prepare something for the weekend. Eddie does not appear motivated.
