Tina and Sean are two of societies rejects. Tina hates her parents and has moved out, living in a squat. Sean stutters badly except when he sings or is angry, which is the case most of the time. They meet in a pub one night and become, in Tina's words, just like Bonnie and Clyde. They first murder a local loan shark but then set their sights on one of the detectives looking for them. Fitz brings his insight to the case but continues his testy relationship with the the police. His home life is still in a shambles. He very much wants his wife to move back in with him, but she will only agree if he joins Gamblers Anonymous. There is also a growing sexual tension between Fitz and Detective Penhaligon, which is obvious to both of them. Written by garykmcd
