“I want my wife

Can I offer myself for “wife” position? 😗
I promise to behave and be a loving spouse 😁

Yes! If you behave and are loving, you’ve got it covered.

All he asks here, all Alice has to do is stop committing adultery with incompetent terrorist sympathiser Aafrin of the four facial expressions, whose shitty choices led to the death of his lover, a missionary (and almost many more had the missionary not taken the brunt of the bomb), a man who is a liar who is willing to abandon his family and run off to Australia with another man’s child.
Honestly, I’m not convinced that Charlie ever cheated on Alice – it may have been a lie Ralph told to excuse Alice running away in season one, since it’s never addressed again. All he seems to want is loyalty, some occasional affection, and, here, obedience (though the obedience might mostly be “don’t cheat on me again, don’t kidnap my child again, I now can’t trust you unless you obey me”). I never heard anything from Alice’s lips about Charlie’s behaviour prior to her running away that wasn’t about what *she* wanted, which was some nebulous thing that her “perfectly decent in his own way” husband was apparently unable to satisfy. Yet somehow Aafrin could, which seemed to be mostly if not completely, shagging.



“Ride A Cock Horse”, a traditional nursery rhyme here partially sung by Charlie Havistock (Blake Ritson) to his son, Percy.

Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady upon a white horse;
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
And she shall have music wherever she goes
