It is now Christmas at Lime Grove and Hector is attempting to put the arrest behind him while Kiki goes missing. His self-destructive behaviour spirals out od control as Bel and Freddie look for the truth about what happened and attempt to locate Kiki. Lix is preoccupied with the likely spread of nuclear armament across Europe. Randall informs her the real reason for his return. Freddie, Bel, Hector, Marnie, Bill and Laurie attend a special Christmas charity function. Bel and Bill’s flirtation is interrupted as Freddie shows Bel a picture he’s found of Kiki.
Previously on The Hour Season 2 Episode 2 “Series 2, Episode 2″, Hector and Marnie invite their friends to a party at their apartment. Racial tension increases across London, due to the influx of immigrants from the Commonwealth who bring new culture to Britain’s streets. It provokes much discussion at the party which is interrupted after two policemen arrive at the door to arrest Hector on suspicion of beating up Kiki. Hector’s absence has not gone unnoticed the following day by Randall, and Bel has a difficult job to try and keep Hector’s arrest secret from him. Freddie makes matters further after he decides to hold a controversial interview with a fascist named Trevor on the same day a visit from members of the board is due to happen.
