Tim and Judith didn't enjoy the most amicable break-up, so any chance of a rekindled romance was a long shot. Those odds shrink remarkably, however, when Judith receives a blow to the head and comes to thinking she's still married to the sleuth.

Poor Philip is understandably devastated, but on hand to pick up the pieces is Chris, who believes the best course of action is to reintroduce him to the dating scene right away.

While that's going on, Owen 'helps' (to use the word loosely) Marcus with his music recital.
