This prompts Faith's friend Lily to comment that Peter sounds like he's showing signs of a husband who is straying. Peter has lost weight, updated his wardrobe and been sleeping in the guest room. Peter claimed this was due to the stress of his work as a publisher and his search for a new job. This starts Faith to question Peter's fidelity, her marriage and her current life style.
