Russ gets in the mood for Freddie’s DJ’ing gig by listening to some ‘nineties bangers’. Lily reckons Chelsea fancies him – she saw her looking at Russ last week. Russ thinks that’s ridiculous; last time he spoke to her she could barely give him the time of day. Lily worries about going back to university – she’ll be much older than everyone and they won’t be drop-outs like her. Russ reminds her of all the things that were happening in her life at the time; it wasn’t her fault. Later Russ suggests they share a place together in Felpersham, near the university. Then Lily will feel more part of things. Lily thinks it’s a wonderful idea and tells Russ she loves him very much.
When Kirsty notices things are a bit fraught between Natasha and Caitlin, Caitlin admits they’re always arguing, but she wants to make sure Natasha can cope on her own when it’s time to go home. Tom tells Kirsty that Caitlin’s driving Natasha up the wall and Kirsty thinks Caitlin’s feeling a bit put upon. Later Natasha’s surprised when Caitlin says she’s accepted Pat and Tony’s offer to stay at Bridge Farm – Natasha needs to be more independent. Natasha counters she would love her own routine, but everything has to be done Caitlin’s way. After Caitlin’s gone, Natasha and Tom enjoy some alone time with the babies. Tom admits he might’ve had something to do with Caitlin’s defection and Natasha concedes that although she likes having her mum around, you can have too much of a good thing.
