River City

BBC Scotland

Robbie is on cloud nine

Will has to face up to the past

Kelly-Marie lets go of some grudges

This week's River City episode

Tuesday 22nd April

 

This week in Shieldinch…Will confronts his past after a violent attack at a local halfway house; Robbie’s on cloud nine after rekindling his romance with Will; and DS Grant’s guilt is soothed by an unlikely source.

Will investigates a brutal attack on one of the young residents at a halfway house. At the hospital he meets social worker, Sandra Devlin, who’s distraught by the act but warns the boys won’t welcome police questioning.

Sandra takes Will to the dismal halfway house and he quickly becomes suspicious of one boy – Danny Collins. However, Will is shaken to the core when he spots Petey Roberts amongst the residents. Having not seen Petey since his father’s trial, Will is horrified at the change in him.

 

Initially cold towards Will, Petey demands to know why he didn’t keep in touch with him as he promised. Will tries in vain to defend his silence and vows to protect Petey – all he has to do is tell him about the attack. Petey quickly points the finger at Will’s prime suspect, Danny, but DCI Donald warns Will not to let emotion cloud his judgement.

 
   
 

Robbie’s on top of the world after rekindling his relationship with Will. And it seems he’s not the only one prepared to make amends as Kelly-Marie takes tentative steps towards letting Lenny back into Callum’s life again.

Elsewhere, DS Grant struggles with guilt following Mandy Kennedy’s death and finds unexpected solace in the arms of DCI Donald.

Will is played by Scott Ryan Vickers, Robbie by Gary Lamont, DS Grant by Therese Bradley, Sandra Devlin by Caroline Paterson, Danny Collins by Brian Vernel, Petey Roberts by Sean Hayman, DCI Donald by Robin Laing, Kelly-Marie by Carmen Pieraccini, Lenny by Frank Gallagher and Callum by Robbie Neilson.
