For Pete’s sake!
Pete is getting serious with Gillian but is he still in love with Lily?
Partner swapping seems to be working for Pete and Gillian. Their relationship is getting hot, steamy and more serious than ever. Does this mean Pete is nally over Lily? Or will Lily start to realise she’s not over Pete?
It’s a nice change of fortune for the unlucky-in-love Pete (Ian Meadows). He has been left to stew over his feelings for Lily (Jessica Marais) while watching her date Jack (Rob Collins) for months now. So nding a romantic connection with Gillian (Natalie Bassingthwaighte) has been invigorating for the often unsuccessful Pete.
Getting the attention of a sexy, award-winning pastry chef must be an ego boost and go some way towards mending the pain of his broken heart. Is it possible that being with Gillian has helped Pete to move on from Lily?
Regardless of Pete’s true feelings, it’s a bizarre situation for the writer to be in and one that suggests Pete and Jack have the same taste in women. Gillian is Jack’s former lover and her very presence in town has put Lily on edge fearing that Jack would stray back to his ex.
And it’s possible that seeing Pete with Gillian is making Lily question how she really feels about Pete. It would be hard to see your long-time best friend and one-time lover with someone else, particularly since they also dated your current partner.
Lily may never have really dealt with her own feelings for Pete and his declaration of love because she chose Jack and ed town with him. Since the pair returned to Melbourne their relationship has hit one serious milestone after another, overwhelming Lily and leaving little time for serious contemplation.
So Pete’s new romance must be throwing Lily’s own love life into sharp focus. Since things with Jack have been rocky lately could she be wondering if she chose the right man after all? And is Pete actually over her or just distracted by Gillian’s attention?
HOT CHEF The gorgeous Gillian (Natalie Bassingthwaighte). LOVE-GO-ROUND Pete (Ian Meadows) has had an ego boost being with Gillian and it’s also made Lily (Jessica Marais) re-examine her feelings for Pete.
