Previously, on Mr. Selfridge: Harry, Gordon and Jimmy are psyched about their purchase of Whiteleys department store, but their joy is tempered by the fact that the business’ accounts are a total mess and the store has no stock. Whoops! A reporter is still digging in to Jimmy’s relationship with the now dead Victor Colleano, basically because the script says he has to do so. (There’s no reason for this, but Jimmy’s a murderer and garbage, so bring it on!) We learn that machinist Tilly Brockless had a child out of wedlock and that’s why she lost her previous job. Meryl guilts her father about firing the girl over it, and Grove eventually relents and hires her back, right before he drops dead in the back yard. Oh and Harry and Mae sleep together, which is actually much ickier than we all thought it would be.
Want more details? Last week’s recap is right this way.
