In the fifth episode of this second season of The Durrells, as Louisa and Spiro (Alexis Georgoulis) tend to her market stall, he thinks she has bad taste in men, but she tells him he is just being overprotective.
Meanwhile, Vasilia (Errika Bigiou) demands that her relationship with Larry (Josh O’Connor) proceeds quicker than Larry wants it to. Back at the house, Donald (Ben Hall) is tutoring Gerry (Milo Parker) on the terrace but having little luck as Gerry is distracted by a falcon trying to attack his beloved otters.
Hugh (Daniel Lapaine) tells Louisa about his ambitions with olive oil as he drives them both for a jaunt by the sea. Later, Spiro chats about the similarities and differences between the Greeks and the English and Hugh comes up with the idea of a cricket match to bring everyone together – Greeks versus English.
Margo (Daisy Waterhouse) visits Countess Mavrodaki (Leslie Caron) and asks if she can provide a suitable trophy for the winning side. The Countess gladly accepts declaring she will umpire too, but warns Margo that the match will not be a friendly game – nothing between the British and the Greeks ever is. Who will win the cricket match? And will Anglo-Greek relations be the same afterwards?
The Durrells Season 2 Episode 5 airs on Sunday 21 May 2017 from 8.00pm-9.00pm on ITV.
