I will admit to being one of those who think the attempted blackmail, however mild, isn't Connor's finiest hour. It is sleazy and not very nice, but it's also gauche and naive.

S1 Connor I just don't get the attraction of, but I get a bellyful of students via the uni, so that's hardly surprising.

Abby's reactions are interesting in this and you've flagged things up very nicely. Thanks.

As a Connor fan, it's a scene that even I have to admit I'm not proud of! He certainly improved a huge amount from series 2 onwards (something that I think Abby would agree with!).

I do think Connor's threat was more of a jokey thing and don't see Abby being genuinely scared. I have to say I thought nothing of it till I found the moment being discussed on one of the Sunday posts a few months ago. I think analysing it with people lets you see the different reactions.

I also agree with you and Fred that Connor has definitely matured since.

I liked that there wasn't any lingering awkwardness with Stephen and agree that her crying wasn't too out of place. Seeing someone die has got to be pretty shocking.

Yes, and also, people seem to miss that the 'blackmail' was actually when he was asking her to kiss him, not when he was asking to move in. But yes, I don't think he meant it seriously, and I don't think Abby took it seriously either.

There's lots of really good Abby stuff happening in his ep. I've always liked the scenes between Abby, Connor and Stephen, they were developing such lovely friendships in the early days.

I never really took Connor's blackmail threat all that seriously, we as the audience have already been shown that Connor is a Good Guy so I don't think there was actually any heat behind it. I think he was just far more focused on appearing cool to his friends and wasn't thinking at all about what Abby might be feeling.

Yes, the friendship between Abby, Connor and Stephen was great fun in the early days, and, relationship issues aside, they all bounced off each other really well.

As for Connor, no there was never any real threat there, but it shows just how completely socially inept and immature he is at this stage, and I think Abby realises that.
