It isn't all perfect and at one stage Ianto ends up hitting Owen in the head with his elbow. He kisses it better. They've both enjoyed themselves and hey there's always plenty of chances to practice.
Owen loves taking care of Ianto so when he's sick he gets him the soft tissues, a Vicks inhaler and some Lemsip. He leaves him a few DVDs and a book so he doesn't have to move very far. At work he worries about Ianto all day. When he gets home Ianto is sleeping. Owen fixes the duvet and takes the remote from Ianto's hand. He kisses his forehead, Ianto's temperature feels normal again thankfully.
His partner has been shot and he can't move. He watches Martha about to autopsy him, feeling numb. When they bring Owen back he doesn't know what to say. Owen's hurt, angry and scared. He dumps Ianto two days later, nobody wants a zombie boyfriend.
Jack is always telling tall tales like there really is a group like the X-Men in the future. He tells them Brad Pitt will one day be president of America, that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are based in fact. Nobody believes him but the stories are entertaining. Owen and Ianto are surprised on a weevil hunt one day to find themselves confronted with a huge toad that looks suspiciously like Baron Von Greenback. They later apologise to Jack for calling him a liar. Owen wonders if this means that the Brad Pitt thing is true too.
Dr Owen Harper was working the late shift in A & E when a young man was admitted with slashes to his wrists. They are able to help him and Ianto asks him to stay while he's seen by the psychiatrist. He's lost his girlfriend and doesn't see a way back from that. Owen feels so sorry for the situation Ianto is in. He tends to the other patients but keeps coming back to check on Ianto. He hopes he can fix him.
They've had reports of strange attacks in Bristol, victims drained of their blood or people being mauled. Jack is insistent that it's not aliens but lets them investigate. They don't find much out, the local police have it covered they insist. Owen and Ianto find themselves in a pub with a nice couple called George and Mitchell. George insists they're just friends but most people don't look at their friends like that. Mitchell kisses him on the cheek and Ianto smiles when George just blushes.
They spend ages planning. Barring an alien invasion this will happen. Owen puts sellotape over the taps and Ianto puts salt in the sugar. Gwen appears with a wet patch on her top, shouting obscenities. Two hours later Jack and Tosh are spitting out their coffees. Ianto and Owen giggle like children. They'll have to be on the lookout for revenge pranks.
Ianto is sneaking off on his own again and Owen is worried. He's been secretive and seems really down. Owen follows him one day as far as the cemetery. He approaches Ianto slowly, unsure if he should disturb him. Ianto looks up "I know it's empty but she deserved some sort of remembrance." Owen holds Ianto's hand as he stands over Lisa's grave.
Owen doesn't want to think about Jack while he's having sex with Ianto but it seems Jack taught Ianto some things. When he feels Ianto's tongue against his hole, when Ianto licks and kisses him there Owen can't help but feel grateful that Jack must have introduced Ianto to rimming.
