Moray’s plan to come between Lady Katherine and her husband Tom Weston have adverse consequences for Katherine and Denise this week.
Mr Weston is furious to see that Moray has set up a display of pocket watches which might steal attention away from his own new department and when he sees Ladieswear buzzing from Denise’s latest innovation, he asks her to spend time in other departments to make improvements.
Persisting with Mr Fenton’s plan to reignite their intimacy, Moray asks Katherine if he can use her father’s watch as a centrepiece for their display, but she refuses before changing her mind after seeing her husband favour Denise. She reveals to Moray that although her father intended it to be a gift for her husband, she refrained from giving it to Tom because she felt it would always belong to Moray.
Sam, the proud vendor of the new pockets watches, is mesmerised by the Glendenning watch and Katherine’s stories of how her father used to ‘hypnotise’ her. When Susy asks to be hypnotised Sam agrees, but when she takes a romantic interest in him he starts to wonder if the watch is truly bewitched.
Elsewhere, Jonas suggests to Moray that they deploy the truth of the watch to antagonise Tom, but Moray is reluctant to play games.
But he gets the shock of his life when Mr Weston orders Denise to make a trip to Paris as a reward for her good work in The Paradise. How will Moray cope without her?
