Episode 4
 
Larry (Josh O’Connor) is back at home. He’s got the mumps and believes Vasilia (Errika Bigiou) is to blame. Louisa announces that it’s a good excuse to keep Aunt Hermione (Barbara Flynn) away from the house as she’s coming to visit from England. Meanwhile, Louisa still has doubts about her relationship with Hugh (Daniel Lapaine).
 
At the market, Gerry (Milo Parker) and Margo (Daisy Waterstone) lazily man their stall as they discuss why it’s necessary for Gerry to be educated by Donald (Ben Hall) before it starts to pour with rain. 
 
They arrive home to Theo (Yorgos Karamihos), trapped by the storm and unable to get away. Spiro (Alexis Georgoulis) arrives bringing Aunt Hermione to the house a day early along with her medium friend, Mrs Haddock (Una Stubbs). 
 
Mrs Haddock tells Louisa that she can sense her late husband and that he is suffering terribly now Louisa has so many male admirers.  Mrs Haddock announces that she’ll hold a séance so Louisa can speak to her husband one last time. 
 
Larry confronts Louisa about her wanting to do the séance and says it will only open old wounds but Louisa wants to go ahead.
 
Everyone is gathered as the séance begins. The storm rages outside as Mrs Haddock asks the group to join hands and shut their eyes.  Will Louisa communicate with her late husband and be able to move forward with Hugh?
