ITV Update

Welcome back Sun, 7.00pm, 10th Apr

With no dinner invites this Sunday, Sadie is in the pub reading the newspaper. Cain arrives and sits down next to her and is soon pestering her and reading her paper while Tom looks on disgusted. Cain can see that she’s a Billy-no-mates at the moment and tells her if she’s ever at a loose end again then she should call him. ‘I’m not that desperate,’ she tells him. He replies: ‘Oh I think you are.’

‘You make my flesh crawl,’ she hits back at him, making to leave. ‘Go on, talk dirty to me again, unless you’re saving it for old grandad over there,’ he replies. At that Tom gets up and goes to punch him, but is stopped by Matthew. Paul chucks out the Dingle rogue and Sadie offers to buy Tom a drink. ‘I don’t think so,' he tells her, although he does manage to say, 'take care of yourself,’ as she leaves. Is Tom softening towards her?

Elsewhere and Nicola has spotted a castle that she’d like to get married in and tells Simon that they should go and look at it that afternoon. He’s not really up for it (no shock there then) and tells her he’s going to buy some milk. Instead he goes for a bite to eat in the café. Nicola eventually catches up with him and is furious.

She tells him that it seems like he’s not interested in the wedding (no, really?!) and doesn’t want to arrange anything. She tells him she’ll go on her own, but then decides against it for fear of looking ‘sad and single’. Simon manages to appease his fiancée by telling her that he loves her so much that he’s entered them into the Mr and Mrs quiz night at the pub later in the week. And she buys it too!

Thinks are a little sensitive at the vicarage too when the Bishop arrives for Sunday lunch with Ashley, Laurel and Ethan. Poor Laurel is a bundle of nerves and tries to engage in some small talk with the Bishop. She asks him what he thinks about world events at the moment, but he tells her he doesn’t have time to read the papers. So she hands him one that they have and on the front cover is ‘Reverend's sordid defrock shame’. Not very appropriate hey?!

Things don’t get much better when Laurel and Ashley share a little kiss before sitting down to eat. The Bishop walks in on them and in her panic Laurel manages to knock the home-baked chicken pie onto the floor! She takes control of the situation and instead of taking up Ashley’s suggestion of going to the pub for a meal she fries some bacon instead!

The move certainly got brownie points from the Bishop for when he leaves he tells her that she managed the situation beautifully, ‘It was a sign of an excellent hostess, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.’ After he’s left Laurel tells Ashley that it was all she could do not to kill the Bishop during the last few hours ‘because if it hadn’t been for him we’d be married by now’.

Back at the pub and Jimmy and Sadie have another coming together with both claiming that the other is going to be penniless following the divorce proceedings. Sadie claims she has got a top-notch solicitor who’s going to get from every penny he has. Fighting talk, but Jimmy doesn’t seem too bothered…

Overhearing their conversation Tom approaches Jimmy once Sadie has left and asks him if he wants a drink. Jimmy is surprised, but accepts. ‘I think it’s time we had a word,’ Tom tells his eldest son.

They talk about what’s happened in the past few weeks. Tom is depressed about the whole thing and tells Jimmy that the Kings work better when they work together. He then offers to take Jimmy back into the company and the family. Jimmy is shocked, and cynical, ‘What’s the catch?’ he asks. Tom tells him there is not catch, ‘You might be an idiot, but you’re still my flesh and blood.’ Tom’s way of giving a compliment, what isn't that nice?!
