2x6: Episode 6 recap: As the couch station, a young boy is going to his bus and notices Terrence sitting nearby. The boy sneezes and Terrence blesses him, and the boy's mother comes over and apologizes. They sit down next to Terrence and she explains that they're going on holiday to the south of France. Terrence says that he's going somewhere to get away from it all, where no one can find him. He points out that taking the couch is the long way and the mother talks about how they all have to think about the environment. Terrence agrees with her and then asks why she had a child if she's so concerned, pointing out that nothing has a larger carbon footprint than a first-world child. He describes how her child will produce forty truckloads of carbon in his life. Shocked, the mother listens as Terrence says that the best thing to do is cut her son's throat open, and offers to do it for her if she'd like. He reaches into his pocket and pulls out... a bus ticket. Terrence says that his couch is leaving and suggests that maybe it would be better if her son didn't get over his flu... read more.

2x4: Episode 4 recap: At a suburban home in Hartwell, Georgia in the U.S., a wife is watching TV and her husband dozes off, snoring. The phone rings and the wife goes past her three young children to answer it. She tells her husband that a Grace Carconan is calling, and he has no idea who it is. He takes the phone nonetheless and says that he'll be right there, and tells his wife that he has to deal with a sewage pipe breakage... read more.

2x3: Episode 3 recap: At Ian's office building in London, Joe comes into work first and finds Lee opening up Ian's computer. Lee claims that he's doing routine maintenance, but Joe points out that they do their own maintenance. Sheepishly admitting that lying usually works, Lee claims that he's a DCI and says that they need access to Ian's computer under the 2011 terrorist act. He has a warrant and tells Joe to sign an Official Secret Acts document, and invites Joe to use his phone to call the police if he has any questions. Joe insists on using his own phone and as he makes the call, Lee casually cuts his throat and then calls his superior to say that things have gone a bit awry. Joe manages to pull himself up and staggers away, and Lee goes over and beats in his head with a fire extinguisher. He then gets back on the phone and admits that making it look like a suicide won't work... read more.
