Simpkins and Constance have a romantic Valentine’s breakfast, then Constance nonchalantly mentions to him that she is going to give AJ some lessons in love, Mrs Robinson style. However, when Constance sees AJ at his flat and sees that the card he thought was from her was actually from Candi, she realises she should do the right thing, leave AJ alone and encourage him to get romantic with Candi. Meanwhile, Simpkins is incensed and tries to shmooze Candi in revenge, she is having none of it! Later, Constance finds out and has a heart to heart with Simpkins, they have both been playing games but she loves him with all her heart.
AJ tries to pretend to Candi, when he goes to take back the card to her, that he does not care, but eventually they talk and realise they could be more than friends. It seems the Valentine Cupid has struck after all!
Over with Eliza and Reg, they are reminiscing about 1990s dance tracks featuring Bjork and Reg is feeding her chocolates and trying to be a good platonic father-to-be.
At the pub, Gina has made a trail of heart confetti to lead Fred to her and some lusty times. After a bit of that, they decide to head to that most romantic of dining establishments – that Burger King just outside of town. Gina is slightly on edge and it comes to a head in the car when she finds Fred being too blase about their relationship, which Gina thinks should be perfect – after all, someone died so they could be together!
- Simpkins’ rage at AJ for, as he sees it, trying to lure Constance into being his Mrs Robinson, and his sarcasm when AJ says he is not interested and likes Candi, “Oh, would you like to return the item??”
- Fred being specific about what his car is, a Daewoo Matiz
- Reg dredging up a description of the afore-mentioned 90s track featuring Bjork from his memory
Will Fred be scared off by Gina’s intensity?
Will Candi and AJ manage to do anything more intimate than some light pinky-linking?
Does Eliza want more from her baby daddy than just being her twin babies’ daddy?
