Tadhg’s breakfast, which consists of deep-fried bacon with a side of lard, arrives at the same time Frances does, and we’re not sure which of these two things is worse for his health. It seems he’s supposed to be on a diet, so Frances nags him about it for a while, and eventually tells him that if he doesn’t care about himself, he should at least think of little Áine, who needs her daddy to stay alive. I suspect if Tadhg’s poor eating habits lead to his needing a heart transplant, Áine could go out with her Barbie scissors and procure one in less time than it would take the surgical team to get scrubbed in to operate.
Back at the café, Máire gathers up her stuff to leave and asks Berni to have Evan call her if he can ever be arsed, especially since she’s a grieving widow who’s probably going to die soon and her last wish is to speak to her grandson. She wanders off, and when Fia tries to smooth things over and make Berni feel better, what she gets back is Berni being a snot about the fact that Fia’s mother didn’t bother showing up for the mass, either. Keep in mind that Fia’s mother lives in Australia, whereas Evan lives 20 minutes away. Fia gives Berni a great look that says “Don’t start something unless you think you can finish it, bitch,” and they glare at each other, and this is the most serious shade I’ve seen since the last season of RuPaul’s Drag Race ended.
At Gaudi, which Pádraig seems to have managed to keep from burning down all summer, David is telling Father Éamonn about Gráinne’s miscarriage. They never even knew if the baby was a boy or a girl, he says, but he wanted to call her Róisín. Fr. Éamonn volunteers that the baby is with God now, because it was His will, which of course leads David to ask, “What kind of God would take a baby from us while allowing the Kardashians to exist?” I’m paraphrasing. David says he has to protect Gráinne from any more heartache, but Fr. Éamonn says he’s going to have to tell her he can’t father any more children eventually. David and his groin seem unconvinced about this, which they symbolize by furrowing their whatevers and looking into the middle distance.
Outside the pub, Mo tells Máire and Bobbi-Lee that she just spoke to the Gardaí, who told her that Anto has been charged and is being held without bail. They’re very happy, and Máire says today really is a day to celebrate, because first that rogue Colm left town forever, and now this. The part about Colm comes as news to Mo, who looks ambivalent. Bobbi-Lee offers that perhaps it’s for the best for everyone, a new start and all that, and Mo agrees weakly, but it’s obvious she’s torn.
