Jimmi goes to see Hermione to confront her about her kiss with Al and finds her manically hoovering her entire house. He tries to calm her but she’s mad with worry that she’s going to lose him and Jimmi struggles to reassure her. He lets her know that he absolutely cannot forgive any sort of infidelity – what happened with Cherry means he’s very touchy about this. 

It’s clear that OCD sufferers Jimmi and Hermione are now making one another worse. Hermione tries to frantically provoke him into a response by creating mess – knocking things onto the floor and spilling the bag from her vacuum cleaner all over herself.  She’s clearly a mess, and Jimmi cannot help her; he has to leave her be so that they can each sort themselves out. Jimmi gives Hermione a tentative kiss goodbye…

Meanwhile, it’s the day of Joe’s Christening and an excited Daniel spends the morning worrying that all of the attendees will be able to make it. Zara still thinks the whole thing’s a sham but if it gets Joe into a good school it’ll be worth it. Daniel agrees but, as the service begins, he cannot ignore the icons – Christ on the cross, Viv’s dog collar – and is suddenly wracked with guilt.

As Joe is taken to the font, Daniel freaks out and suddenly has to take his son back from Mrs Tembe and admit to the whole church that this is an act of fraud, and that none of them really believe in God. Zara is relieved; Mrs Tembe distraught and Heston and Howard both utterly unsurprised. Zara and Daniel decide that it’s probably a good idea to have Joe sent to private school instead…
