Whilst Marnie gets a job as a television chef and is considered an ideal housewife,Hector is arrested for beating up Kiki. With nobody else anxious to help him Bel does some sleuthing at the El Paradis club and finds that Kiki poses for nude photos and suspects that perhaps she was assaulted by a jealous boyfriend. She is right but he is very high profile and when Hector is released he is unaware of his identity. Nonetheless Hector returns to the club after Marnie has told him that from now on theirs will be a marriage in name only. Freddie courts controversy by announcing that,given the current climate of colour prejudice,he will host a discussion between Sissy's boyfriend,black doctor Ola and a boy with fascist leanings. The doctor's eloquence humiliates the racist and the broadcast is deemed a success. Randall warns Bill Kendall off trying to poach Hector but Bel finds herself being charmed by Bill.

The Hour Episode #2
23 November 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Freddie comes to collect his wife so they can join everyone at a party at Hector's house. During small talk Freddie and Hector fight about the issues of people living in London. Camille and Freddie explain how they met and how much they are in love while Bel finds it hard to listen to. During the party the police come to the door looking for Hector. He is told that it is because a women said that he attacked her. The women makes her statement about the attack but Hector still says he was not responsible. Freddie believes that Hector could be responsible but Bell still holds out some hope for him. Camille has black dust thrown on her because there is a black man living in her apartment. Bell takes the calls of the office to explain the absence of Hector. Freddie try's to talk to the troublesome boy but he still does not listen to him still believing in his views. Bell tells Lix that Hector was arrested which is why the office seems empty of people. Camille is unhappy that Freddie is using these guys on the hour and the two fight over it. Marine goes out for a job as a TV cook. Bell visits the club where Kiki works. Bell asks the owner who bet her but she sees that he could be the one responsible. Bell talks to one of Kiki's fellow workers outside who tells her Kiki has some other people she works for as an actress. Bell goes further into downtown to find anyone who could be connected to Kiki. Bel came up with nothing when she tried to prove the innocence of Hector and now believes he could be responsible. Marine is called in to tell her story where her husband was on the night he was accused of hurting the girl. Marine gets Hector out she tells him that their lives are to kept separate not caring about what the other one does. The hour does there program with the fascist who believes that Sissy's boyfriend does not deserve the same opportunities. It turns out that Kiki was using this fake story to get the attention of The Hour's new boss. Bell still wonders why this girl got bet and can see nothing in the pictures that she got. Hector walks in on Freddie practicing for when he is on the air just in the background as he watches. Kiki returns to her performances while the manager tells Randall to watch out. OK episode still but the relationships between every character seems to be getting more dramatic.

EPISODE GRADE: B- (MVP: Dominic West)
