Em arrives at the café for a date with Chris. Em is on a mission to find a nice guy, with the help of her friends and a dating agency, she’s put together a series of Blind Dates. Chris clearly likes Em, but the conversation isn’t flowing as well as it could be.
It appears this isn’t a Blind Date after all and the pair have previously met, but Em doesn’t remember Chris, she may have blocked it out.
