JACI STEPHEN’S ul­ti­mate in­sight into the week’s soaps

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SOAP WATCH -

In­car­nate is res­ur­rected? Later she finds ev­i­dence and de­mands that Charlie tell her the truth. Will he de­cide that hon­esty is the best pol­icy?

Hal­loween cel­e­bra­tions (as if half th­ese peo­ple aren’t al­ready scary enough) serve as the back­drop to the en­gage­ment party. Lau­ren is spooked as she feels she’s be­ing fol­lowed. But whose face is be­hind the weep­ing an­gel mask?

How much longer can they milk Re­becca’s au­di­tion? With Sonia’s mu­si­cal genes, the poor girl prob­a­bly can’t even play the comb and pa­per (I sus­pect it was a body dou­ble at the Vic gig). Hor­ri­fied to learn that Sonia emotionally black­mailed her daugh­ter, Carol calls the academy to re­ar­range Re­becca’s au­di­tion. Yawn.

There’s a bit of les­bian vi­o­lence when Load­aTosh breaks the news she isn’t preg­nant. A slap from Tina leads to a punch from Load­aTosh, and later Dean and Stacey tell Tina she can’t let this hap­pen. Isn’t that a bit rich com­ing from a rapist?

Sarah Cairns’ stalk­ing of Martin Fowler comes to a head when, after ad­mit­ting to his wife Sonia that their af­fair is a lie, she stabs him. Sonia then hits her with a fruit bowl, and Sarah (above, with Martin) is sent to a men­tal in­sti­tu­tion.

‘Spi­der’ Nu­gent uses his po­si­tion work­ing for the DSS to sum­mon Les Battersby for a grilling about why he’s been claim­ing the dole while work­ing. But the eco-war­rior says he’ll turn a blind eye if Les ac­cepts his re­la­tion­ship with Les’s step­daugh­ter Toyah.

After Zak Din­gle chal­lenges old bare-knuckle box­ing ad­ver­sary Ned Glover to a fight fol­low­ing a row, the vil­lage turns out to support farm­hand Ned – ex­cept his fam­ily, who try in vain to stop it. But after a bru­tal scrap, Zak gives in and Ned wins.
