BBC Scotland

Finn spirals out of control

Raymond's search agitates Betty

Bob and Angus deal with the aftermath of their scam

This week's River City episode

Tuesday 2nd September

 

This week in Shieldinch…Finn’s behaviour spirals out of control as he lashes out against his foster fathers; Raymond’s search for the truth agitates Betty Turnbull; and Bob and Angus deal with the unsettling aftermath of their latest scam.

With their three month trial fostering period coming to an end, social worker Sandra interviews Will, Robbie and Finn. While Will remains upbeat, Robbie delivers some home truths about the challenges they’ve faced.

And when Sandra speaks to Finn he grows paranoid he’ll be rehoused. He later voices his frustrations to Kirsty as the pair play truant from school, drinking cider in the park.

Meanwhile, back at the flat, Robbie and Will toast a successful venture at the salon. A drunk Finn stumbles home and misreads their celebrations as a sign they’re getting rid of him.

Fuelled by rage, Finn lashes out, trashing Robbie’s salon. And when Will confronts him, Finn self-inflicts injuries, claiming Will attacked him. Suddenly, Will falls under the intense social services spotlight and a possible police investigation.

Elsewhere, Raymond revisits Betty Turnbull, desperate for answers about her missing husband. An agitated Betty tries to give him the brush-off but Raymond senses she’s worried and urges her to go to the police. Terrified at the prospect, Betty tells Raymond to leave her alone.

Bob is guilt-ridden following his ill-fated crash-for-cash scheme with Angus. So when crash victim’s daughter, Ailsa, turns up in Shieldinch the pair are unnerved to find out her father’s woken up from his coma and worry how much he’ll remember about the accident.

Finn is played by Sonny Green, Raymond by Paul Samson, Betty Turnbull by Molly Innes, Bob by Stephen Purdon, Angus by Scott Fletcher, Sandra by Caroline Paterson, Will by Scott Vickers, Robbie by Gary Lamont, Kirsty by Bobby Rainsbury and Ailsa by Charlene Boyd. 

 

Previously on River City: Tuesday 26th August

 

This week in Shieldinch…a visit to Kiev opens Dan’s eyes to Tatiana’s turbulent past; a familiar face returns causing more conflict for the couple; and Bob finds himself caught between a rock and hard place, much to Molly’s discontent. 

Kiev comes calling when Tatiana makes an unplanned visit to say goodbye to Dimitri, her former boss who is dying. Determined to be supportive, Dan insists on travelling with Tatiana, oblivious to her disquiet.

A frail Dimitri welcomes them but is disappointed when Tatiana reveals Christina won’t be joining them. Much to Tatiana’s fury, Dan asks Dimitri about a protestor outside his house. Dimitri reveals she blames him for the disappearance of her son and Dan is taken aback to discover she’s been protesting for over 15 years.

 

Tatiana bids an emotional farewell to Dimitri, their closeness noted by Dan. At the airport, there’s a distance between Tatiana and Dan but further unrest comes calling when immigration officers detain Tatiana in Glasgow.

Under questioning, Tatiana’s forced to admit she’s separated from husband Bob and the threat of deportation fast becomes a reality.

Elsewhere, with her mother under immigration scrutiny, Christina returns to Shieldinch, demanding answers. Dan desperately tries, and fails, to find Bob to get him to vouch for Tatiana so Christina’s happy reunion with stepdad Bob proves short-lived when she pleads with him to help her mother.

Much to Molly’s displeasure, Bob still cares for his estranged wife and as secrets and lies unfold, Tatiana’s fate rests in Bob’s hands.

Dan is played by Adam Robertson, Tatiana by Magdalena Kaleta, Bob by Tom Urie, Molly by Una McLean, Dimitri by Matthew Zajac and Christina by Caitlin Gillespie.
