DERANGED TO THE END

AN UNHINGED Kim RE­SOLVES TO SEP­A­RATE Grace AND Esther PER­MA­NENTLY, BUT HER AC­TIONS MAY LEAD TO HER OWN DEMISE

Soap World - - THIS MONTH -

Kim But­ter­field’s obsession with de­stroy­ing her wife Esther’s some­time lover Grace Black has driven her to such ex­treme mea­sures that her mar­riage to Esther has now ir­repara­bly splin­tered, leav­ing her de­ter­mined to erad­i­cate Grace once and for all, even she has to kill her.

With Esther’s grand­mother Frankie pres­sur­ing her to di­vorce Kim, no­body knows that Kim, who re­cently dis­ap­peared, is ac­tu­ally hid­ing in the Os­borne fam­ily at­tic sur­rounded by a shrine to Esther as she spies on her wife.

Lit­tle Os­car’s dis­cov­ery of Kim’s hid­ing place sparks Esther’s de­sire for the miss­ing Kim again, lead­ing her to her row with Grace as she asks her to leave them alone to sort out their prob­lems. The ar­gu­ment leads to Esther and Grace sleep­ing to­gether again and an eaves­drop­ping Kim vow­ing to kill Grace.

In the af­ter­math, Esther dumps Grace but wor­ries for her safety when she fi­nally finds Kim’s shrine in the at­tic and fears that Kim is about to com­mit mur­der. Esther races to stop Kim from killing a sleep­ing Grace with a poi­son­filled sy­ringe, but as the sit­u­a­tion boils over a trau­ma­tised Kim is left stand­ing atop the vil­lage arch, con­tem­plat­ing sui­cide. Esther gives chase and re­acts in hor­ror when it ap­pears that Kim has plunged to her death.
