I haven't listened enough! Is the relevant episode still available?
I think they've been at it for a while. Kate did move in with Jakob
recently when Peggy's boiler was on the blink - against his wishes and
better judgement. Just when conception took place, if it did, is anyone's
guess at the moment.
Kate said it was "a few weeks or so", when Alice asked her how far
into her pregnancy she was.
By the way, welcome to umra, or should I have recognised you as a long
I remember Kate telling Peggy that she can be noisy on such occasions.
True. That was in response to Peggy's suggestion that he stayed with
them. I believe that was when she was insisting on playing up to Kate's
claim that she was Peggy's carer, and Peggy could not be left alone.
Presumably Jakob has discovered that that was not true. Did we hear that
revelation or what Jakob's reaction to it was?
Oh yes, now it is coming back to me - Kate had a bit of a crush on Jakob, so was it her having a good time with him that was the cause of the noise, if so, when was that (still looking for some replay of the episode for evidence that they had actually got together).
No, I think it was a bit more recent that that, although it was in the
fairly early days of their relationship. It was when Kate had been
trying to impress him with the level of care she gave her grandmother
and how essential she was to her. Having established that Peggy
couldn't possibly be left alone, it was then impossible for Kate to take
off and spend the night with Jakob, without blowing her cover.
Peggy suggested Jakob could stay the night with her, but (to Peggy's
huge amusement) Kate was far too embarassed at the idea of Peggy hearing
her raptures, to cope with that idea.
I forget exactly how Peggy let her off the hook but I do remember it was
a bit of a damp squib.
Best wishes, Serena
Dreaming, I dreamt that life was all joy. Waking, I found that life
demands service. Serving, I found that joy is in service.
So, I remember Kate trying to find somewhere she could stay the night with
Jakob, and I remember her deciding it couldn't be where Peggy could hear.
And I remember Peggy letting Kate off the hook about Peggy not being able to
be left alone.
But I don't remember Kate actually 'getting off with' Jakob - it all seemed
as though her wanting to have a romance with him was just one sided, and
Jakob didn't seem interested.
So did Kate actually manage to get the romance to progress, and did they find
somewhere to actually 'do it'?
Presumably they did it at Jakob's, he has his own flat after all, but I
don't think we have heard them at it at all.
Last Autumn Jakob went off to Scandinavia for a few weeks, and Kate felt
abandoned. When he returned Kate was very short with him and it looked
like they would separate. Kate's attentions were transferred to Alice
who soon got fed up with this, particularly with the proposed matching
tattoos. On the 28th October Alice decided to go and see Jakob and told
him that he was in danger of losing Kate. So he skived off work and
broke various traffic regulation to reach her as soon as possible, and
they agreed that they were still together. I don't know whether they had
previously been at it, but I think we can assume that it would have
happened not too long after this.
