Episode Summary

Fran determines to sort things out with Mike once and for all. Putting her own feelings second, she counsels him to get his act together, as pulling the business round might get his marriage back on track too. Still guilty over her near miss with Will, Luce finds herself blocking Mike at every turn. Mike won't be put off and doggedly works to convince Luce that both he and the business are what she wants. It proves harder than he thought. His wife is barely talking to him and the business no longer seems to need him: Sophie has steamed in and taken control. Mike finds that decisions, such as finding a new editorial assistant, have been made without him. When he confronts Luce he's struck a further blow—she's thinking of leaving Seethru. Zoe's disconsolate. Her work experience at Seethru is up and nobody even remembered to show her the door. But the advertised assistant's job offers a glimmer of hope and when Reece offers to help her with her application, she buries the hatchet. Brandon instinctively doesn't like this new found closeness, but far, far worse is to come. Mike lays out his plans for a new comedy section on the site and tells Luce that he wants her to edit it. Her amazed yet willing acceptance suggests that the couple can begin to patch up their differences. When he discovers the webcam footage of Reece and Zoe having sex in the office, Brandon's revenge knows no bounds. Reece doesn't know what's hit him and when a distraught Zoe runs from the office it really does look like this time he's finally dug his own grave. Just as he's won Luce over, Mike's horrified when Brandon unearths a transcript of Will and Luce's cybersex. Mike assumes his wife's having an affair and spirals headlong back into the arms of Fran. This time there's no way he's going to stop things running their course.moreless
