Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
In this episode of This Life, the house uneasily accepts Ferdy (Ramon Tikaram) as a short-term guest, though Warren (Jason Hughes) has trouble coming to terms with the ambiguous sexual orientation of his former one-night stand. Anna (Daniela Nardini) begins the difficult business of courting political favor in anticipation of her tenancy vote, with mixed results. Her decision to sell Miles (Jack Davenport) out on their joint case in This Life: Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? sits better with some colleagues than it does with others, especially when Miles discusses the issue around the office. Miles gets his follow-up HIV test and immediately begins considering his next sexual conquest; Egg (Andrew Lincoln) helps him come up with a personal ad. Egg also manages to lose the house grocery kitty at the bookie's, though he wows the rest of the house with his abilities in the kitchen. Speaking the universal language of football, Egg also manages to charm café manager Nikki (Juliet Cowan) into considering him for a job as a short-order cook. Meanwhile, Milly (Amita Dhiri) and Warren start learning the difficult business of working together. Ferdy visits his priest in hopes of a joint counseling session with his former fiancée, Mia, but it does no good. Later, while clubbing with Warren, he hits on Rachel. At home, he also tries to get back into Warren's pants, to no avail. Kira (Luisa Bradshaw-White) is equally unsuccessful in catching Jo (Steve John Shepherd)'s interest, especially after Miles gives Jo some of his typically ill-informed romantic advice. Series two, episode three of the cult-favorite British soap This Life: The Bi Who Came in From the Cold first aired on BBC 2 on March 31, 1997.
