Definitely agree re Mal and Asbo. Also I think Trish's bracelet suggest that she's had a baby rather than lost one. Could be wrong though :}

No I agree with you; the baby bracelet said 2002. So she wasn't pregnant when Kev was injured, this is a kid she had years before she even met Kev, most likely. My best guess is she got pregnant very young and put the kid up for adoption. And this is where the mystery of "Socks 'n' Sandals" comes in; who was that guy? I don't think the baby died because the severity of Trish's sister's "you need to tell him" makes me think this is a kid who is still out there somewhere. So maybe, because she knows she won't be having children with Kev but she does still want to be with him, she's suddenly wondering about the daughter she gave up and trying to find out what became of her?

Yep, I could get behind that theory! I'd completely forgotten about "Socks 'n' Sandals" guys :}

Between the bracelet and the mystery guy leaving her place, I assumed she's trying to track down a child she gave up for adoption before she met Kev. I'm kind of curious how this will play out because, right now, I'm feeling like it's an unneeded plot development in a show that already has a lot going. Personally, I would have liked her declaration to Kev that she didn't want children, even before he was injured, to stand. Too many TV shows and movies go to the 'If your a woman you obviously want to have kids' well.

It's a little too early to tell whether it is going down that route, though; TBH Trish's declaration may still be valid, just that she knows this is something she's going to have to come clean to him about before they move forward with a marriage. Jodie did say in the Sky cast interviews that Trish has "quite a checkered past," so there may yet be more layers to this than we realize.
