Episode Seven: Things are looking rosy for Joe and Viv, and they even discuss the possibility of a joint business – Purvis & Casey, much to the consternation of Trevor who feels he is being cut out. But on the business front Joe is concerned about some shady goings on with the sale of the flats, and his uncle Alan arrives to take control of the situation. Despite all the pressure from their families, Trevor and Clare are reunited, and Trevor proposes. He tells Joe of his marriage plans, but does this mean the end of Purvis & Purvis? A shock is in store when it is revealed that it is Uncle Alan who has bought the flats and sold them on at a huge profit. Following a mammoth row with Uncle Alan, Joe wants to walk away from everything including Viv, declaring that he has nothing to offer her or anyone else. Things aren’t going so well in the Marriott household either as Geoff is suffering from acute depression – a perfect end to a perfect day.
