Episode Summary

Happy Families
After landing the job of his dreams, Warren needs a place to live. Anna starts ‘squatting' at chambers. Her first case is a housing benefit fraud involving an unlikely couple called Truelove and Delilah. Delilah proves to be a head case and a complete liability. Dishonest and manipulative, she flirts with Miles and ends up having sex with him in the toilet. Egg is finding his new job claustrophobic and is irritated by Warren's apparent drive and confidence. He becomes alarmed when he sees the advert for the spare room in the house, but when Warren explains just how grateful he is for his job, a guilty Egg decides he should be invited to move in. Just as Warren is beginning to relax, his brash teenage cousin, Kira, shows up hoping he will get her a job. Terrified that she will find out he is gay and tell his parents, he tries to fob her off. But Kira is made of resilient stuff and gets a job as a temp at his firm anyway. Egg shows further signs of his disillusionment when,having been sent out on an office errand, he wanders off to the park and then simply goes home. Milly is puzzled by his behaviour, but he cannot explain himself. Anna feels confident, now that she has moved into the house, that she can win Miles over. He comes home very cheerful about something and Anna is convinced that their romance is back on. But Miles has other things on his mind. He has been offered a high-profile fraud case and has a new girlfriend who has decided to move in.moreless
