And now Henry's forcing Irene to convince his mother to give up her lover or else he'll destroy Irene's business. Our romantic lead. Be still, my beating heart.
Oh, but he's embarrassed that Irene overheard his sisters and sister-in-law trashing her and her sister. Even though almost every time Henry speaks, it's him trashing someone, including Irene.
