Episode 3
No one, not even Louisa (Keeley Hawes) knows the exact date of her birthday, but upon seeing how much she is missing Larry (Josh O’Connor), the family decide to throw her a party to cheer her up. 
Larry’s bachelor life is interrupted by the arrival of Louisa with a food parcel.  Louisa admits that she misses his intellectual conversations but Larry replies with a cutting remark about her age. With Louisa unwilling to rush into things with Hugh, Larry informs her that soon all her children will be leaving home so what is she waiting for? Reluctantly, Louisa takes Hugh (Daniel Lapaine) up on his date where she learns some shocking truths about Vasilia (Errika Bigiou).  Hugh is irked when his car breaks down and Spiro (Alexis Georgoulis) comes to the rescue. 
Meanwhile, Margo (Daisy Waterstone) spots a handsome boy at the market and informs Gerry (Milo Parker) that she has given up being a nun. Gerry pays little attention, too distracted and unhappy about his impending tutorial. 
Theo (Yorgos Karamihos) arrives from a photography day out and Leslie (Callum Woodhouse) decides he’s going to become a portrait artist as he believes this new venture could solve the family’s money worries. 
In the meantime, as Louisa seems to show no signs of giving up Hugh, Vasilia continues on her mission to run Louisa’s life. Will she succeed?
