Gareth Blackstock's life isn't getting easier. Savanna is still making advances and Cyril makes another impossible request. He went to a fancy packed restaurant where the chef mingles with the customers. He wants Gareth to do the same. It might even solve his inability to make small talk, thinks Cyril. Gareth refuses, claiming his family has a long history of non-mingling, but Cyril immediately knows the real reason. The great chef is scared to death, starts hyperventilating, needs lots of encouragement and then even fails in starting a conversation. Back at home a surprise waits him. Janice let herself in, but she doesn't bring a nice message. She wants to continue with the divorce. She blames him for not making small talk. Written by Arnoud Tiele (
