ITV viewers were captivated by the first episode of Our House at the start of the new thriller. The series follows estranged couple Fi (played by Tuppence Middleton) and Bram (Martin Compston) who still own their family home together. However, the second installment of the drama left some fans frustrated as they spotted some issues with the plot.
A series of flashbacks throughout the series show the couple’s marriage breaking down after Fi catches Bram cheating on their neighbor, Merle (Weruche Opia).
On Tuesday night’s episode, Fi asked Merle to babysit her two sons while she was away.
However, when she returned, she made it clear that she no longer considered Merle a friend.
“I poured myself a drink. I hope you don’t mind, said Merle.

“She seriously let the woman her husband cheated on keep her kids?” #OurHome,” @DebbieBlackma14 commented.
“But, you let her watch your kids??? #OurHouse,” @LouiseS79443824 remarked.
Many suggested the situation was unrealistic and accused the show of being full of “plot holes”.
“Too many holes in this story. The woman your husband slept with keeps your kids and then you kicked her out? A two million pound house of people on average salaries? Just not realistic at all. #OurHouse “, said @RachPteacher.
“#ourhouse has plot holes as big as a house,” @thehatandbeard joked.
