This week Tommy, in an effort to cheer up his best mate, went off in search of Kirsty in an effort to bring her back into his life so they can patch things up.
So Marcus told him, in a “you didn’t hear it from me” kind of way, that Kirsty was due at the hospital for a test (or something) and he may just happen to bump into her there. He does manage to convince her to come find Tyrone. Unfortunately, the timing was all off because when she did find him, he was busying teaching the fine art of darts to what men of a certain age would call a “dolly bird.” He was basically being nice to her as Dev’s ill-considered date brought along a friend.
Well, that set her off but really, Tyrone could buy a Yorkie from Rita and get accusations of infidelity from Kirsty
Well, they patch things up but it doesn’t look good when Ty scalds himself with the water from the kettle and it looks like Kirsty’s beating him again.
It doesn’t help that Tina told Tommy that Kirsty had been abusing Tyrone so when they see this injury, they confront Kirsty who then goes back to isolating him from his friends and for the time being, it works.
Better get a friend to get those Yorkies for you, Ty.
Karl has been reading Hanna Rosin’s landmark Atlantic Monthly article “The End of Men.” With no job and no prospects and “a credit rating that would make the Greek prime minister give pause,” Karl is feeling less like a man these days. His answer? Buy £500 worth of Chinese smoke detectors and sell ’em at a profit with the help of Chesney’s market stall. All they have to do is “borrow” the money from Dev and Sunita’s joint account. This is an excellent plan and I can see no downside.
Sunita isn’t so sure but when she sees Dev returning their spoiled and exhausted children and he lords over the fact that his wealth was built by him and him alone, she has a change of heart.
Steve was feeling a little not up to standard when Rob complained of getting coffee spilled all over his £350 suit. As Steve has no suit costing that much, he tries to make a show in front of Michelle by ordering the most expensive thing at the bistro. Michelle asks what’s up and he admits he thought Michelle would be more impressed with him if he appeared successful. Michelle reassures him that she loves him as he is as her standards are already pretty flaming low.
While I did enjoy Gail getting Fireman Paul to sleep at hers solely to wind up Eileen, I may have missed something over the summer when I wasn’t watching. What happened to the house Paul shared with Leslie? Did he sell it after she died? Is he living with Eileen now? Does he not have his own place?
Jason and Marcus’ new beau Aidan bonded over their shared love of action movies. They should just go see Expendables 2 and make a date night out of it.
