My guess is that, this week, Jeph will try his hand at Shakespearean comedy.
Whilst the aftershocks of Renee realising that she fancies Elliott echo across The Secret Bakery, Brun makes her appearance and, in her usual direct way, decides that Elliott is 'off limits' as he and Renee had chosen each other (which they haven't). So, when Clinton comes in on a completely random errand, Brun directly asks him for a date, horrifying Renee and Elliott for differing but complimentary reasons. It is at that point (on Friday) that Renee makes the dumbest suggestion she has ever made: "Hey! Let's pretend that we are dating! That way, Brun will get jealous and try to 'steal you away'!"
