Kirsty bows to peer pressure

Alan struggles to cope with teenage angst

Zinnie regrets giving Angus a second chance

This week's River City episode

Tuesday 28th October

 

This week in Shieldinch…Kirsty bows to peer pressure and takes her relationship with Finn to the next level; Alan struggles to cope with teenage angst while Kirsty discovers Angus’ has been keeping secrets about their mum; and Zinnie quickly regrets giving Angus a second chance on an ill-fated date.

Taunted at school by popular girl Amanda, Kirsty downplays teasing about her and Finn’s friendship. Lured into a false sense of security, Kirsty unwittingly reveals to Amanda she’s still a virgin. It’s not long before mean girl Amanda delights in spreading rumours about Kirsty around the school.

Humiliated, Kirsty confides in Finn who offers a shoulder to cry on, making him all the more attractive to a smitten Kirsty. As the attraction between the pair grows, they kiss. With her dad and Angus out, Kirsty leads Finn back to her house where they sleep together.

 
       
   

However, Kirsty’s first time doesn’t end happily after an enraged Alan discovers what happened between his underage teenage daughter and Finn.

Things got from bad to worse for Kirsty after she finds out Angus kept news of their mum from her. Confused and desperate for her mother’s guidance, Kirsty goes in search of Rhona only to discover she’s moved on.

Elsewhere, Angus persuades Zinnie to go on a date with him but fails to impress. Zinnie’s hopes of a romantic night out are quickly dashed. Instead she’s left underwhelmed with a takeaway pizza and cheap wine at a student flat with Angus out of his head.

Kirsty is played by Bobby Rainsbury, Finn by Sonny Green, Alan by Stephen McCole, Angus by Scott Fletcher, Zinnie by Nalini Chetty and Amanda by Rebecca McInally.

 

Previously on River City: Tuesday 21st October

 

This week in Shieldinch…the heat is on Angus and Bob as their lies about the insurance scam threaten to unravel; Bob’s conflicted about his blossoming relationship with Ailsa; and Kirsty and Finn’s ‘just good friends’ status is scrutinised.

Angus’s whiplash makes an unwelcome, and painful, return. While Angus suffers, Bob’s love life benefits as his relationship with the victim’s daughter, Ailsa, grows ever more serious.

However, there’s trouble in store when Ailsa’s dad Neil, the victim of the car crash, turns up in Shieldinch looking for Bob, and answers about the crash.

With his livelihood on the line as well as crippling insurance costs, Neil is desperate to piece together the missing details of his crash and he doesn’t disguise his fury for the other driver, little realising Bob and Angus’s role in the accident. Angus warns Bob to end his relationship with Ailsa before the truth is uncovered – for both their sakes.

Meanwhile, Ailsa and her mother, Annie, have their own secret to hide as they deliberately withhold details about the crash from Neil.

 

Later, with his heart at odds with his head, Bob goes to Ailsa’s for a romantic meal but it quickly goes awry when Angus arrives. Having received a letter from the insurance company with his and Neil’s details, Angus urges Bob to intercept Neil’s letter before it’s too late.

Elsewhere, Kirsty and Finn snub teasing about their relationship, insisting they’re just good friends. But when their night out ends with a goodnight kiss, it casts a confusing shadow over their friendship.

Angus is played by Scott Fletcher, Bob by Stephen Purdon, Ailsa by Charlene Boyd, Kirsty by Bobby Rainsbury, Finn by Sonny Green, Neil by Paul Nivison, Annie by Gillian Kirkpatrick.
