Has Elaine finally cottoned on to who Stephen really is?
When Stephen snaps at her as she practises her Tai Chi exercises, Elaine worries about Stephen's low mood and as he heads off for work, Michael reckons his bad mood is down to the fact he’s missing Canada.
Later, Stephen is grateful when Jenny offers to put in a good word for him with Owen and when Stephen reveals that it’s Canada Day, Elaine forms an idea.
Determined to win him round, Stephen invites Owen for lunch who levels with Stephen and admits that he doesn’t trust him and suspects he’s using Seagull Ltd to siphon money from Underworld and wants Jenny for himself.
As Stephen tries to argue, the door opens and Elaine, Audrey, Sarah and Michael burst in waving flags and wishing him a happy Canada Day. Painting on a smile, Stephen is taken aback to clock Elaine scowling at him.
