MUM’S THE WORD – ALAS It’s al­ways a mis­take to leave the Square, be­cause it’s a given that you’ll re­turn to find some­one is one of three Ds – Di­vorced, Dead or Dumped by the lat­est pro­ducer (the last two in­vari­ably go to­gether).

Kathy re­turns this week and Kim fills her in on the lat­est tragic events. Kathy’s cu­ri­ous as to why Ian didn’t call, but he’s pre­oc­cu­pied be­cause Steven’s body has been re­leased. It’s all too much for him and, when Kathy re­minds him that she is his and Ben’s mother, he breaks down (pic­tured). Yes, that re­minder would be enough to make any­one weep.

Kathy thinks Ian’s be­hav­iour might have some­thing to do with the fact that she faked her own death. Yer don’t say! A sane per­son might say that was just the cherry on the cake. She also en­cour­ages him to visit Bobby – that’ll cheer him up! Will he go, or de­cide that hav­ing a ner­vous break­down and be­com­ing a tramp was bet­ter than the life he has now? As plans get un­der­way for Steven’s fu­neral, ten­sions are raised be­tween Lau­ren and Abi. And on the day it­self, the fam­ily li­ai­son of­fi­cer re­veals that Steven did not have a brain tu­mour. This is un­likely to come as a mega shock as no­body knew Steven had a brain. Will Abi’s in­volve­ment be ex­posed, or can we ex­pect a full house at the fu­neral? In te­dium else­where, Kee­gan’s still look­ing for a job. Why oh why wasn’t this en­tire ghastly fam­ily blown up in the ex­plo­sion?
