True Dare Kiss: Episode 2 (S1EP2 BBC1 5 Jul 2007, Lorraine Ashbourne)



Episode 2: It’s Nita’s birthday but she’s not having much fun – she suspects something’s going on between Nash and Phil. Meanwhile, Nita’s most troublesome employee, Beth, has assaulted a Scouse builder in full view of the site management. It’s also the day of the will reading. Stan leaves each of his daughters nothing but a stuffed animal. Much to Nita’s outrage, the house is left to Dennis and all Stan’s wealth to their absent mother Evie. Alice is entrusted with the job of contacting their mother. Only Phil knows where she is and seems reluctant to put Alice in touch with her. Nita tries to save Beth’s job and impress Construction Company Director, Sven, by taking him to Old Trafford. After the match in Sven’s limo, he angles for some extra personal attention to sweeten the deal, but Nita freezes and has an uncharacteristic panic attack.

Nita recovers in time to see Beth emerge from the match alone. Phil has left for a rendezvous with Nash. Nothing suspicious, she says, just a catch up, but what she learns about Nita and Nash’s marriage makes it clear that all is not well in paradise. It transpires Nita and Nash haven’t had sex for years and that Nash is sleeping with Beth. Alice is pleased with her first transactional dynamics session and Bryce is delighted by the way Alice has opened up to him.

On the way back from the game, Nita and Beth pop in at Smyrna Grove. Dennis is thinking about selling. Nita is eager to buy and makes him an offer. But Beth seems agitated and tells Nita to spend more time worrying about her husband. Nita drives home alone troubled by her conscience.
