“Hounslow” takes us forward one week after the disastrous wedding. Ainsley (Rebecca Rittenhouse) is grieving, with Maya (Nathalie Emmanuel) and Gemma (Zoe Boyle) doing all they can to comfort her. Episode 2 was another heartwarming, funny episode for the Hulu series.

Episode 2 offers another moment for also-grieving Kash (Nikesh Patel) and Maya, who was tasked by Ainsley to drop off some of his stuff in her home. They were watching a quiz show together at Kash’s father’s house, and they were in synchronization for most of the questions — this will inevitably cause problems later.

“Hounslow” also sees Craig (Brandon Mychal Smith) taking the initiative to bond with his daughter, secretly watching her play football. Her mother catches him watching, and unluckily for him, she’s a lawyer, and she drafts a paper for him to sign, so he gives up his parental rights. Zara (Sophia La Porta) believes Craig is cheating on her and also convinces Duffy (John Reynolds) that it is with Maya, serving some genuinely good comedy.

By the time Four Weddings and a Funeral Episode 2 reaches the halfway mark, Ainsley is still suffering from her recent break-up, and her friends organize a game night. The night turns into an inquisition into Maya, as the group finds out she is planning to meet her ex. Maya is struggling with her break-up as well, and seemingly cannot let go.

When Maya meets up with her ex, it turns out it was his wife pretending to be him via text and urges Maya to stay away.

“Hounslow” offers closure for Ainsley, for now. Kash turns up at her house and explains he has been a fraud all his life, and only realized it on the wedding day. She returns his perfume and closes the door on him. Maya gets closure too, writing a letter to her ex, and throwing it into the sea.

Four Weddings and a Funeral season 1, episode 2, “Hounslow” ends with Duffy finally finding the courage to get over Maya and ask a colleague of his for a date; Craig meets his daughter’s mother again and assures her that his girl is the most important person in all this, and then Zara intervenes in the conversation from nowhere, believing she has caught him in the act — he finally calms her down and tells her the truth about his daughter, but his lack of commitment to the relationships forces Zara to walk away; Maya also decides she is going to stay in London now, which excites Ainsley, but Gemma is not too pleased.
