Her affair went on for years and she was so aggrieved by his. Like he said, they all knew him, he came to their home, she said she loved him. He lied to her for years - their whole marriage. I think it is worse

Watched the last episode yesterday. Does Nathan figure out that the baby she aborted could either be his or Christies ?

Also, it does rather suit Nathan to act the victim, doesn't it ? Why, because her affair started earlier and went on longer and was therefore somehow worse ? So that somehow excuses his affair. Hmmm.....

To the pp who asked a few posts back - sorry I've only just seen the thread again - I'm pretty sure the school is Dulwich College.

They were both too good for her

I started out preferring Christie but now love Nathan despite his indiscretion although that put me off him a bit obviously

BehindTheGreenDoor Mon 16-Mar-20 13:22:41

Bunny I agree. I think she was just trying to blame him when it was probably both at fault.

I meant @BehindTheGreenDoor not @ myself obvs

tomovemykids Mon 16-Mar-20 12:56:43

@BehindTheGreenDoor oh I've just understood what you meant now! Work together as in work together at Noble & Hale, not work together as in a couple <face palm> sorry that was my confusion!

BehindTheGreenDoor Mon 16-Mar-20 09:16:01

tomove No I think Christie said he lied when he said they could work together without becoming involved or something. I can’t remember whether it was this series or the previous one.

@BunnytheBee I don’t remember that but it’s not just for him to say they can work together. They obviously couldn’t.

@tomovemykids I don’t think he blew hot and cold as much. He obviously wanted her and he still wanted her at the end after Nathan left her.

tomovemykids Sun 15-Mar-20 23:32:08

@BehindTheGreenDoor what? Christie lied about being able to be together? Tbh they both blew hot and cold all the time. In the beginning tho Hannah was definitely leading him on and then changing her mind and backing out every time they got close to touching or kissing.

I also thought it was a bit rubbish that she left her swimming costume at home when her alibi was swimming, and she was such a shit liar when Nathan questioned her.

BehindTheGreenDoor Sun 15-Mar-20 22:44:49

BunnytheBee there’s a scene somewhere where she says to Christie something like - we decided we could do this, we could work together - and he says that he lied.

I think it’s worse because what she did went on for so long (even if there was a gap) and was still happening and was an emotional thing (she told Christie she loved them both) plus she made such a big deal of what Nathan did which just made her hypocritical. I also hated that she strung Christie along and blew hot and cold

tomovemykids Sun 15-Mar-20 19:38:58

I watched S1 the week before last, and S2 last week. Loved it!

I know what people mean when they say about Nicola Walker's speech, but just think that's the way she talks. Maybe a bit of an impediment perhaps, which only makes her more real imo. I thought she did a great job of displaying the raw human emotions when she was in turmoil.

Also love that she's almost 50 and cast as the object of the main men's desires/affections. Refreshing not to have a big age gap and have a much older man.

I think part of the reason she would have gone ahead with the wedding to Nathan would have been to escape the Defoe household and the responsibility she had there for her younger sisters.

So, do we think that even in 2020 it somehow seems more "OK" for men to have affairs? Are we hating on Hannah more because she had an affair of the heart as well as a physical one (whereas for Nathan it was just physical), or because she's a woman so we expect more of her?

Or maybe we're annoyed at her for messing Christie around so much?!

I've just binged all 12 episodes after someone at work on Friday told me to watch it. I struggled with Nina because I looked at her and saw Evie from the House of Elliott (old programme!). The characters not only look so similar but behaved similarly as well.

BunnytheBee Sun 15-Mar-20 18:16:39

I didn’t say they were “seeing each other all that time”, but she knew she’d slept with him the night before her wedding, there was the pregnancy and abortion (that only she knew about, so she should have known it wouldn’t be a good idea for them to work together and there was no suggestion that she’d given that consideration.

happinessischocolate Sun 15-Mar-20 18:05:13

I just find it unbelievable that she’s had something going on with Christie all that time and thought it a good idea to work with him let alone anything else

They hadn't been seeing each other "all that time" they slept together before Hannah wedding and then the affair started when they started working together.

Hannah had never even met Christie's wife.

QueenOfTheAndals Sat 14-Mar-20 15:38:42

I hope there's a series 3, although I'm more interested in seeing what happens next with Nina and Tyler than with Hannah's triangle. And I really can't care about wet Rose and her even wetter husband!

BunnytheBee Sat 14-Mar-20 14:13:42

Christie can do better (IMHO)

WaterIsWide Sat 14-Mar-20 14:12:47

So, we take it that no contraception was used even though it was the night before her wedding to Nathan ?

I'm surprised Christie still wants her after all this time and drama.

RainRainGoAway2020 Sat 14-Mar-20 12:39:16

I’ve finished both series. The abortion storyline puzzled me a bit. Surely if Hannah slept with Christie and got pregnant she would have had the abortion sooner than 3 months after her wedding? Or did I miss something?

Whatthefunk Thu 12-Mar-20 19:46:09

I'm about 4 episodes into series 1 and quite enjoying it, but Nicola Walker is driving me crazy. She is supposed to be a very successful lawyer, but she seems to simper and almost swoon in every scene....She seems to play the same character in everything she does.....

BunnytheBee Thu 12-Mar-20 12:27:09

I don’t get what the 🦊 was about

Thank you. What was the significance with the fox??
