Teenagers in tur­moil

SUR­ROUNDED BY THEIR FEUDING FAM­I­LIES, Coco AND RJ CLING TO EACH OTHER, DES­PER­ATE FOR THEIR RO­MANCE NOT TO BE­COME A CA­SU­ALTY OF THE UN­FOLD­ING DRAMA

Soap World - - DAYTIME B&B -

Coco says she’s not sur­prised that Thomas bailed out Sally and the busi­ness be­cause he’s a man in love.

Pres­sured by the For­rester fam­ily to trap her sis­ter Sally into a con­fes­sion of cor­po­rate theft to en­able them to pros­e­cute Sally, a dev­as­tated Coco breaks down in RJ’s arms, cry­ing that she’s wrecked her fam­ily and con­demned Sally to a life in prison. RJ is sup­port­ive, be­liev­ing in Coco’s in­no­cence and also feel­ing rail­roaded by his fam­ily into sell­ing out his girl­friend.

Un­able to con­vince St­effy (Jac­que­line MacInnes Wood) not to pros­e­cute Sally (Court­ney Hope) or find an al­ter­na­tive pun­ish­ment to prison, Coco (Court­ney Gros­beck) cries as Sally is led away.

After learn­ing that her sis­ter is be­ing spared pros­e­cu­tion, Coco frets over the deal that will per­ma­nently shut down Spec­tra Fash­ions. She’s sorry that Sally has lost her dreams and Thomas (Pier­son Fode) but Sally main­tains it’s bet­ter to have loved and lost than not love at all. The words crush Coco, who fears that the fam­ily in­fight­ing will even­tu­ally ruin her love for RJ (An­thony Turpel).

Later on, Coco is given cause for cel­e­bra­tion dur­ing a For­rester dis­cus­sion about the Spec­tra fi­asco. Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) an­nounces that he’s come to re­alise that Coco truly was an in­no­cent party in the whole mess and be­cause of her loy­alty to them he wants her to stay at For­rester Cre­ations. Thrilled, Coco prom­ises she won’t take the sec­ond chance for granted and RJ is sim­i­larly ec­static, con­fi­dent that he won’t lose his girl­friend now.

Af­ter­wards, Coco’s news about Thomas sav­ing Spec­tra Fash­ions from obliv­ion gives RJ pause for thought. Coco says she’s not sur­prised Thomas bailed out Sally and the busi­ness be­cause he’s a man in love.

Coco looks at RJ as she says that Thomas has demon­strated that he be­lieves in Sally and not her stolen knock-offs. RJ knows that he has a lot to live up to in Coco’s eyes and he vows to honour her val­ues of hon­esty and in­tegrity above all else.
