A Brief Encounter is the sixth and final episode of Series 3 and was broadcasted on Monday 28th January 2013.
A fed-up Miranda makes a big life decision - she's going travelling. She's packed her bags, she's leaving, this time for good. Stevie is devastated and Penny is too wrapped up in renewing her wedding vows to notice. There's only Gary that can stop her going, but how does he really feel?
Penny announces that she and Charles are renewing their vows, while Tilly introduces everyone to her new boyfriend – "Dreamboat" Charlie. Miranda tries to get over Gary and decides to go Morocco. She initially stays at a local hotel and then gets stopped at airport security for having a cat in her case. Miranda puts her flat up for sale and decides to go to Wick. She accidently gets on the wrong train, thus missing the real one. Gary goes to the station to stop Miranda from leaving and declares his feelings for her. Mike returns and both he and Gary propose to Miranda, leaving her to chose between them.
