I love Jen Metcalfe, but Mercy is driving me mad! She's so selfish!

I don't feel sorry for Mercedes. She's the same boring, bland, vile, selfish mess of a character she's been for at least three years and I'm sick of the sight of her.

I wish they'd all disown her.
Yep. And she'll never change. I wish the show would have the guts to get rid.

Mitzeee will realise that she's been behaving wrongly - she's spent too long with the schemers (Warren and Brendan).

Barney is great. Phoebe bores me and I don't think the Jacqui involvement improves it.

I am the minority but I like Dennis and I love Leanne.

I love Phoebe. She's a great character. I want to see more of her. I hope Mercy will change for the sake of her son.

Though on the surface, Riley appears to be coping well with looking after Bobby, he paniced when he had a temperature. Frankie was very capable but Myra, per chance, happened to be there and Riley is confused as to having a good grandmother ?? and a bad mother. Poor Mitzeee, who has only wanted the best for Riley, (even though she detests Mercedes, so may be something there). More importantly, poor Riley, he takes the drunken Mercedes home and then lays the blame at Mitzeees door.

We will see, perhaps. Though this is HO and SLs do tend to get left in the air for ages, orv forgotten altogether, and we may or may not see a resolution to the fate of Bobby !!!!!

Why is Riley blaming Mitzee? I don't get it!

I say both of them aren't needed

BIB pointless

Thrilling

I agree

It did seem overly long today

Of course

something positive, I did smile when Jacqui made phoebe give the coins back
yeah that raised a smile for me too.

oh, I can be positive aboutwatching paint dry ,who knew!

Your sarcasm also raised a smile

He is feeling guilty about Mercedes going over the edge and he has no one esle to blame but Mitzeee as it was her plan to show Mercedes for what she really is.

I like Dennis too! He should be annoying but I think the actor pitches it at just the right level to stay likeable. And he brings out the best in Leanne too.

Phoebe and Jaqui were great together too, more of that please!

They should have had Silas kill her off (with Bobby surviving), that would have ended a character that was forever going around in circles, Riley could move on, the McQueens could have had a very emotional time which involved all of them and Silas would have killed someone that was in the show for longer than a year.

That's not fair. It's not Mitzee's fault.

Perhaps Riley can see that while Mercedes might be a rubbish mum, her family care for Bobby a lot, whereas the only extended family Bobby will get to see if he is awarded custody is the scheming Mitzeee.

Mercedes behaviour is appallng though, I'd be worried if she started showing an interest in Bobby as it wouldn't last.

I reckon she'll sink even lower before she even begins to change. Dark times ahead for Mercy me thinks.
But you're right, with a son now in the picture she really needs to change and has more reason than ever to do so.

Is there any chance anyone can tell me what happened with Dennis?

I missed on both E4's, I don't know why! I kept on getting distracted but I kept on seeing the scene with Will and Dodger in hysterics but I didnt catch why they were actually laughing?

Thanks if anyone can answer!

Dennis is supposed to have been away in India all this time. But he was too scared to take the flight so he stayed in a b&b all that time and used fake tan to make it look like he'd been away. I giggled.

Thanks! I missed the exact scene on both E4's, which I thought should be impossible! I was wondering why he said 'bottle' but never caught the rest and just saw Dodger and Will in hysterics! Thanks anyway!

I really hope Mercedes has an unhappy ending for once. Things always end up working out for her somehow, or at least she has people on her side at the end. After all she's put her family through, her sister and mother try all sorts and then she scolds them for it and pushes Myra on the floor after she tends to HER baby, who she didn't really care about.

She's a lot like the teens. She's annoying and does some bad things or acts as a bully yet never pays for her mistakes. She still has people on her side, especially the people who are trying their hardest to be on her side.

I don't know what people are complaining about with the quality of the episode. Besides Mercedes I thought it was good. Dennis' story wasn't that good though. I particularly liked Barney offering money to Phoebe after she apologises for stealing from him, only for Jacqui to take it off her.
Summed it up. Dennis' story wasn't the best but I was laughing along with Will and Dodger when he recited it.

Just as well Michaela put Mercy in her place, but she'll be forgiven soon enough. Bleh.

Personally, I quite liked Dennis and Barney interacting in tonight's C4 ep, I think Barney can quite easily be paired with any character and still have something funny to say/do, he seems like one of those rare characters who can

I'm not bored with Mercedes yet. Before this, she used to have an up/down/up/down cycle in life, and just when things were bad, things seemed to go right for her without her even trying. She was lucky, and people always forgave her.

But now, it just seems to be down-down-down, and nothing is going right for her, even though she is beginning to try. And people are finally seeing the true her and not being as easy with her. She's certainly not getting forgiveness as easy.

I like the Jacqui/Phoebe scenes, especially because Jacqui used to shoplift herself.

Mitzeee's only trying, she's trying to be helpful. She'll realise.

There was good drama scene with Mercedes pushing Myra and Frankie rushing out of the shop too on to the scene.

Also liked the "strawberry bon bons" talk and Myra rushing out to buy them for her

ETA: Also, when Mercedes left for the toilets, I though Lynsey was going to reach for her drink...bit disappointed she didn't

Actually thinking about it, I just have to question why Doug was not present at Dennis' return party? They live in the same flat, and they got to know each other a little bit before he left, so why was he unavailable?

BIB that is exactly what I thought she was going to do
