Episode Summary

Ben is away for a week at a conference and Susan is being kept busy at work by boss, Katie. When she is told to re-do her new exhibition layout, Susan finds herself working late with the dashing young new guy, Chris. They share a glass of wine and he compliments her but soon gets a little too close for comfort and Susan makes a sharp exit.
Meanwhile, Kenzo is upset that his Art teacher, Mr Tilley, is giving him bad grades. Michael was also taught by Mr Tilley and concludes that their tempestuous history is the reason for Kenzo’s low marks and resolves to give Mr.Tilley a piece of his mind.
Katie informs Susan that Chris has accused her of sexual harassment – until the situation is resolved she is advised to avoid him. However, her fury wins out and Susan pulls Chris into her office to berate him. Unfortunately, Katie walks in and misconstrues the situation and thus Susan finds herself on a course to deal with inappropriate behaviour in the workplace. Susan’s attitude on the course causes the leader to halt proceedings and she is suspended from work.
Mr Tilley remembers Michael & admonishes him as if he were a child again – Michael beats a hasty retreat but determines to show Kenzo that he’s no wimp.
Susan decides the only option is to talk to Chris and convince him she did nothing wrong but he doesn’t need much convincing - he asks her to sleep with him. Being an expert in lechy men, Janey advises Susan to call his bluff and go along with his proposition but everything soon spirals out of control and Susan finds herself faced with the crushing reality of a future with Chris in up and coming Bromley-by-Bow.
