It had vaguely piqued my interest, too.

Oh yes, two New Years' proposals would be brilliant. But we can't lose Matt as a character - too many good one liners from him, so it won't be him she dumps.

And I'm ashamed to admit it but I'm dying to know what Kenton is going to do to Linda's play!

Doh, when i said Christmas I meant new year, rather then some kind of time travel based plotline.

HearMyRoar Wed 26-Dec-12 16:02:39

I am sure matt at least has an idea that something is up. Takes one to know one and all.

I think there's going to be a Christmas proposal, maybe even 2. That would give Lillian something to think about.

I think Matt knows. That's why he's being like this. Either desperate to win her back or some kind of revenge.

Have any of the soaps 'done' incest in their ticklist of isshoos or would it be a first for TA?

It would definitely SATTC!

Ha ha that WOULD be a surprise!

HearMyRoar Mon 24-Dec-12 14:53:27

...in a surprise plot twist it will turn out that matt is also having an affair with paul ?

Lillian is not looking good in this. She seems to be throwing herself at anyone in trousers who will spend lots of money some time with her. I'm sure that it is due to deep-seated insecurities or whatevz (remember she used to be scared of growing old alone and Matt was her 'rescuer') but she is behaving badly.
I wonder if it will backfire and she ends up with neither of them.

Selks Sun 23-Dec-12 22:58:27

So Paul turns out to be no so squeaky clean? Interesting plot twist!

choccyp1g Sun 23-Dec-12 22:54:18

I think Paul has got a secret wife or partner...he may have been single when Matt was in prison, but that was AGES ago.

MrsCampbellBlack Sun 23-Dec-12 19:35:14

Paul gives me the creeps and there is something weird about wanting to shag your brother's partner. But the Archers do love that storyline or variations there of.

I too adore Lilian but wish she'd not done this. She should have dumped Tiger first.

Selks Sun 23-Dec-12 19:32:01

OK - so offer your predictions as to what you reckon is going to happen with the P/L/MC luurve triangle....

I reckon - Matt will find out somehow, possibly when they are in New York. Cue massive row and Lillian flying back early on her own. She feels strongly tempted to run off with Paul but can't quite commit. Matt goes AWOL in NYC while he struggles to come to terms with it all. Lillian becomes very worried about him. Matt returns. They have a big heart to heart. Matt decides to forgive Lillian and she decides to stay with him. Matt realises that he has come close to losing Lillian and begins to treat her much better. Poor Paul slinks off - once again - into the sunset.

I just can't stand Paul. Lillian is far to fabulous for him, he is so so dull. Also I think he is being way too over the top with the whole gooey 'I love you so much' business. Seriously, matt may be an arsehole but he at least gives the occasional decent oneliner and doesn't make me want to vomit every time he speaks.

ArtexTheHallWithBoughsOfMonkey Sun 23-Dec-12 13:01:30

Matt's had years to appreciate Lillian.

Selks Sun 23-Dec-12 12:42:21

Yes, the canoodling makes me shudder...the thought of Lilian snogging with that fag breath....urgh

I don't think she'll leave Matt though. Paul is too dull to become a regular fixture.

lljkk Sun 23-Dec-12 12:40:32

Will I get shouted down if I say the actress is doing a brilliant job? Maybe just imho, but I think it's been excellent acting on her part, and that's why I'm hooked on this storyline.

Would it be funny if Adam ends up comforting her? Lord knows Jenny's got marital misdemeanors in her history, too.

Oh gawd, I'm even sad enough to look up what happened to James' dad (died). I even like Matt all the better for not being able to stomach James. This is not fair. I feel manipulated by the SWs.

kohl Sun 23-Dec-12 12:34:45

I can't see it being a proposal-I can see Matt finding out about The Affair as the big christmas storyline...what will he do ( other than lose his shit?) To be frank, I hope it happens soon as I cannot take much more of The Canoodling. (and I LOVE Lilian).

lljkk Sun 23-Dec-12 12:28:41

That would be pretty radical to propose, they were both married before, though.

He knows he's been a shit & is trying to make it up to her, best as he can. We see how much he does value her. Problem with Matt, he's damaged emotionally so can't be as giving to other people as a normal person usually can. That's the irony in Lillian having love affair with Matt's half brother, who wasn't so damaged, etc. It's like Paul is the person Matt could have been.

See, dammit, there's something twisted about making listeners see Matt Crawford so compassionately.

crisisofidentity Sun 23-Dec-12 11:51:42

D you think he is going to propose in NY because he suspects she is having an affair/drifting away?

lljkk Sun 23-Dec-12 10:47:00

I actually feel sorry for Matt Crawford. confused
