A CROWDED MAR­RIAGE

Soap World - - THIS MONTH -

Linda Carter’s pro­longed ab­sence from her hus­band Mick’s life has left him scram­bling to keep his house and life to­gether. Caught in the mid­dle of his chil­dren’s prob­lems and the ul­ti­mate loss of own­er­ship of his beloved Queen Vic pub through his lack of fi­nan­cial acu­men, Mick has relied on a dan­ger­ous source for com­fort – his daugh­ter-in-law Whit­ney, whose feel­ings for Mick have grown since her mar­riage to Lee col­lapsed.

They ended up shar­ing a pas­sion­ate kiss only for Whit­ney to be thrown out upon Shirley’s dis­cov­ery that she cor­rupted her son. Now, Whit­ney is back and hap­pily en­gaged to for­mer Vic man­ager Woody, whom a jeal­ous Mick evicted af­ter find­ing him and Whit­ney in his bed. Strug­gling with the wed­ding an­nounce­ment, Mick wres­tles with his il­licit feel­ings, fi­nally sum­mon­ing Linda back home per­ma­nently.

At first obliv­i­ous to her hus­band’s tur­moil, Linda is shell­shocked when he con­fesses. A three-way war erupts be­tween Mick, Linda and Whit­ney, lead­ing to harsh words and vi­o­lence. In the end, one per­son is evicted from the pub while an­other re­alises it’s go­ing to be an up­hill bat­tle to make amends for what’s hap­pened.
