Review

It’s flouncing manchild Leo’s (Archie Renaux) turn to come under the spotlight as his family implodes. He’s a monumental brat, seen as the episode begins celebrating his 25th birthday. Twenty-fifth! He behaves like a 12-year-old and everyone treats him as if he’s a wee boy, with a special party tea including a cake and candles; his horrible father even buys him a bicycle.

But this smirking oik isn’t happy because his mum Julia (Julia Ormond) has fallen for a creepy younger man Benjamin (Ben Barnes) who oozes around the family home like an oil-slick. Worse, Benjamin’s half brother (David Leon, from Vera) turns up out of the blue. But Benjamin told Julia he was an only child!

Summary

Leo deludes himself that his parents still love each other, and as Julia's wedding draws closer, he hatches a plan to get them back together. He finds himself with an unexpected ally in Benjamin's half-brother - whom Julia never even knew existed. His arrival leaves her suddenly aware how little she knows about her fiancee. Benjamin is forced into a desperate decision that only exposes his deceptions further, while Leo is forced to painfully acknowledge that the happy life he believes his family used to enjoy never really existed.
