Oh my Josh!

Max stuns Lau­ren with an ad­mis­sion about her boss

TV Times - - Soaps -

all the time abi spent with evil aunt babe has left

its mark

Hav­ing landed her dream job in that shiny of­fice, Lau­ren Bran­ning prob­a­bly thought that her big­gest chal­lenge would be de­cid­ing whether to have a latte or a mac­chi­ato on her way to work. But since join­ing the well-groomed crew at Wey­land and Co, life has be­come very com­pli­cated. She’s got the hots for her boss, Josh (and why not – did you see him with his shirt off?), and found her­self with an un­wanted preg­nancy, cour­tesy of ma­nip­u­la­tive boyfriend Steven.

This week, Lau­ren hopes things are on the up as she pre­pares to as­sist Max de­liver an im­por­tant pre­sen­ta­tion. But mildly de­ranged sis­ter Abi is up to no good. It seems all the time she spent in evil Aunt Babe’s com­pany has left its mark on the once saintly sib­ling. Hacked off with the way Lau­ren has been treat­ing her, she plants more seeds of doubt in Steven’s mind as to what his girl­friend is get­ting up to in Ca­nary Wharf.

Lau­ren is de­lighted when the pre­sen­ta­tion goes well, and her good mood rubs off on Abi, who de­cides to be a bit kin­der to­wards her. Skiv­ing off work, Abi later pays Lau­ren a sur­prise visit at Wey­land Tow­ers and sug­gests they go out for lunch to­gether. She’s left se­ri­ously miffed when Lau­ren gives her short shrift and dis­ap­pears with Max to pho­to­graph a prop­erty.

As a bit­ter Abi heads home, Lau­ren ar­rives at the prop­erty, but is left con­fused when Max slopes off with the in­vestor. What is he up to? Mean­while, back at the of­fice, Max picks up on the body lan­guage be­tween Lau­ren and Josh, and asks his daugh­ter if there’s any­thing go­ing on be­tween them. As Lau­ren in­sists there isn’t, Max makes a reve­la­tion that leaves her stunned.

Max isn’t the only one with his sus­pi­cions, of course. When Abi later tells Lau­ren that Josh will be com­ing to her 21st birth­day party, Steven im­me­di­ately spots the look of hor­ror on his girl­friend’s face and be­comes even more para­noid about the na­ture of their relationship. He’s al­ready in a foul mood, af­ter over­hear­ing Ian con­fide to Jane that he doesn’t feel the same way about his step­son as he does about Lucy and Peter. Sim­mer­ing with rage, is dev­as­tated Steven fi­nally about to snap?
