Up All Night

Craig, Sophie and Alfie have a brief scene in which Craig discusses his fears of dealing with his son.
A dog barks as we find Craig Owens in his home, eating baby food as he protests to Sophie that he can’t be left alone with their baby, Alfie, as he’s terrified he’ll break him. Craig awkwardly tries a tickle, then Sophie puts Alfie in his arms, and tells him he’s amazing. Craig bounces a bit, getting used to the idea, as Sophie notices the newspaper says another person has disappeared. Craig asks her if she is sure about leaving the both of them alone all weekend.
Sophie says, "Of course, what is the worst that could happen?" This statement is less than reassuring to Craig. She declares it to be bath time, and he protests they just did that yesterday. The kitchen lights flicker and they walk out, as Sophie says that it’s not the end of the world…
