“We were in love!” SAY WHAAAT!? Okay, so many of us guessed it was coming and that there was more to it than Ronnie simply being Chrissie’s secret father but it was still a great moment when Ronnie revealed that he and Lawrence had once been lovers. I seriously enjoyed all the ambiguity of their scenes and right up until this moment – even in the earlier scene on the bench – it wasn’t quite clear what the story was. But as soon as Ronnie dropped the bombshell everything fell into place. It was beautifully played, even more so was the simmering tension of years’ worth of secrets and lies, with Lawrence declaring Ronnie now meant nothing to him. Even though I’d had the feeling that these two characters had shared a romantic past it was still a bit of a gasp moment and probably even better for those viewers who hadn’t even begun to speculate just who Ronnie Hale was!
