River City

BBC Scotland

Robbie faces temptation

Kelly-Marie is at odds with Scarlett

Finn doesn't know what to do for the best

This week's River City episode

Tuesday 27th January

 

This week in Shieldinch…temptation comes calling for Robbie on a night out; Finn’s sister Catriona reaches out to him but Will’s sceptical about the reunion; and there’s a growing divide between Kelly-Marie and Scarlett over Patrick’s hidden past.

Robbie feels taken for granted as Will focuses all his attentions on foster-son Finn. He decides to drown his relationship woes on a night out with Kelly-Marie but, he’s a little put out when she invites her step-brother Patrick along too.

It’s awkward between the trio at first but Kelly-Marie, Robbie and Patrick start to relax when they head to Alex’s Chrome club for a night of drinking and dancing.

A few drinks later, Kelly-Marie decides to call it a night leaving Robbie and Patrick at Chrome. And, as the night goes on, Robbie finds himself tempted by another man.

 
       
   

Elsewhere, Finn receives word his sister Catriona wants to meet him again. After their last difficult reunion, Finn’s unsure what to do for the best and turns to his step-fathers for advice. Sceptical about the reunion, Will’s worries are dismissed by Robbie who thinks he’s over-reacting. Yet another example of the growing divide between the couple.

Kelly-Marie is still at odds with Scarlett’s over her treatment of Patrick. Returning from her night out, an inebriated Kelly-Marie dishes out some uncomfortable home truths to her mother.

Robbie is played by Gary Lamont, Finn by Sonny Green, Catriona by Erin Armstrong, Will by Scott Vickers, Kelly-Marie by Carmen Pieraccini, Scarlett by Sally Howitt, Patrick by Gerard Miller and Alex by Jordan Young.

 

Previously on River City: Tuesday 20th January

 

This week in Shieldinch…an injured Molly’s annoyed at being treated like an invalid and finds an unlikely ally in Ellie; Robbie and Will are divided in what the future holds for them and their foster son, Finn; and Angus and Bob’s camping trip stumbles while Buster tries, but fails, to win Ellie back.

Cash-strapped Molly advertises for a new lodger but is left out in the cold with the applicants. Home alone, Molly falls and injures her knee.

Scarlett calls on Dr Dan for help who prescribes rest and crutches. Worse still, a well-meaning Scarlett drops off an alarm bracelet which irks Molly no end who takes exception at being treated like a frail pensioner.

Would-be lodger Ellie arrives but while the interview starts off well but Molly misconstrues care-worker Ellie’s been sent by Scarlett and sends her packing.

 

Later, Molly comes across Ellie having a heated argument with her ex, Buster in the street. He wants her back but Ellie’s having none of it. Impressed, Molly applauds Ellie’s gusto and the pair make amends, bonding over a karaoke session in the Tall Ship.

Elsewhere, as Finn approaches his sixteenth birthday, his foster fathers are poles apart in their future vision for him. While Will is adamant they should foster Finn long-term, Robbie reveals he saw it only as a short-term commitment.
