In Still I Dream, Warren Bowles arranges a meeting with Jed’s old record company and plans to arrange an audit of the company (all part of Bowles machinations, the last thing he actually wants is an audit of the company). On another note Lucy tracks down Alan Clarke who has started his own record company and wants to offer Jed a new record contract. Clarke also lets Jed know that Bowles is not to be trusted. Meanwhile Emma marries the odious Pep but on their wedding night realises he hasn’t changed at all and takes a knife to him….
It doesn’t quite ring true that Jed would have been so completely abandoned and potless, reduced in this episode to working for the crooked Pep (although he claims it is only to keep an eye on him) but things are going on in the background, not least with Alan Clarke who genuinely does seem to have Jed’s best interests at heart.
