“We Broke” encourages the characters to move on after recent events. Episode 3 was less charming than the former, with a tragic ending for one of the characters.

After her recent embarrassing wedding, Ainsley (Rebecca Rittenhouse) is forced to downsize her lifestyle, after her parents decide to cut the financial supply. Ainsley’s business, purchases and social life are expensive, so this was a shock to the system for the character. It’s time for Ainsley to make needed cuts and Maya (Nathalie Emmanuel) to find herself a job. For Maya, she finds herself in a mental place where she does not want politicians hiring her because they believe she will sleep with them, after the scandal surrounding the relationship she had with the senator — those nightmares came to fruition in “We Broke”

Ainsley attempts to make cuts, especially with her two shopping assistants, but she finds herself riddled with guilt and retracts from firing one of them. Ainsley is also unintentionally abandoning her friend Gemma (Zoe Boyle), who is getting increasingly upset at Ainsley’s lack of communication, and her shallow friends. The problem Gemma faces is that her husband is so wealthy, she does not need to work and has to find hobbies to do during the day.

“We Broke” progresses Duffy’s (John Reynolds) relationship with Tabby, but becomes irrationally upset when she gives him constructive criticism over his unpublished novel; the criticism becomes worse when he finds out his friends haven’t read it.

In terms of Kash, Four Weddings and a Funeral Episode 3 sees the man with a new lease of life, refusing pay rises at work so he can pursue an acting career. What he comes to realize is that auditions are hard and brutal, and when his father collapses due to pressure with work and keeping the family together, he decides to scrap the acting dreams altogether and stay working in banking.

“We Broke” ties up a few of the loose ends discussed above; Ainsley plucks up the courage to get rid of one of her shopping assistants after her mother puts on the pressure for her to move back to the USA; Maya gets the job she wants, a less seedy politician who will appreciate her work, not her looks and Duffy apologizes to Tabby and continues their relationship.

Four Weddings and a Funeral season 1, episode 3, “We Broke” ends with the group having their usual game night, but this time it’s a book reading night to make it up to Duffy for not reading his novel. Craig (Brandon Mychal Smith) breaks down reading the opening paragraph of Duffy’s book because Zara (Sophia La Porta) has left him indefinitely, and he reveals to the group that he has a daughter. While this is happening, Gemma finds her husband dead in their bed.
