This week in Shieldinch…as Alex tightens his control over Kelly-Marie, she resorts to desperate measures to push him away; Alan must answer some tough questions from Angus and Kirsty following the near-fatal fire; and Robbie and Will blur the lines in their fractured relationship.
Ignoring Kelly-Marie’s disquiet, Alex announces he’s booked the date and venue for their wedding day. Even Scarlett’s on board with Alex’s plans for a quick wedding, her excitement overshadowing Kelly-Marie’s obvious doubts.
Realising Alex is scheming behind her back, Kelly-Marie decides she’ll need to play dirty to escape marrying him and decides to tell Gabriel the baby could be his. Maybe then Alex will finally call time on their relationship.
Elsewhere, Kirsty and Angus are relieved their dad Alan escaped serious harm in the fire. However, they’re both concerned it wasn’t an accident and question whether Alan attempted suicide. Alan confides in Angus about his regret in not fighting for Grace. Sensing his father’s desperation, Angus suggests a road trip to find Grace but Alan has other, more permanent, plans.
With their relationship in limbo, Robbie suggests himself and Will talk through their increasingly awkward home situation. Desperate to avoid involving lawyers in their marriage break-up, the couple decide to try and find a way forward together – with surprising consequences.
Alex is played by Jordan Young, Kelly-Marie by Carmen Pieraccini, Alan by Stephen McCole, Angus by Scott Fletcher, Kirsty by Bobby Rainsbury, Robbie by Gary Lamont, Will by Scott Vickers, Scarlett by Sally Howitt, Gabriel by Garry Sweeney and Callum by Robbie Neilson.
