Ai­dan will see to it that Vin­cent’s life in Wal­ford is over…”

Des­per­ate Vin­cent is pre­par­ing to walk out on wife Kim and daugh­ter Pearl this week, ter­ri­fied Ai­dan will kill him if he doesn’t pay up.

He’s been given a dead­line to sell The Al­bert and hand over the cash to Ai­dan, to atone for Vin­cent’s part in the death of his brother. The is­sue is that Vin­cent’s buyer pulls out at the last minute, and it looks as if he can’t set­tle up with the vi­o­lent crim­i­nal. Fear­ing for his life, Vin­cent de­cides the time is right to leg it – with­out Kim or their child.

“Vin­cent doesn’t think of this as be­ing self­ish – he be­lieves Kim and Pearl are in danger if he stays,” says our Square snitch. “Ai­dan doesn’t do sec­ond chances, and Vin­cent has seen that he’s pre­pared to go to scary lengths to pun­ish peo­ple who cross him. Vin­cent thinks he’s liv­ing on bor­rowed time. That’s why he de­cides to write a note and pre­pares to leave.”

Things go from bad to worse for the bar owner when the sale falls through, and then he can’t find Kim’s en­gage­ment ring to pawn. The ex­pen­sive jewel could have been his key to quickly get­ting some cash, enough to show Ai­dan he’s se­ri­ous. While he’s scrab­bling around for money, poor Kim is try­ing to give their lit­tle girl a birthday to re­mem­ber. It’s not pos­si­ble for her to throw the lav­ish dos Pearl is used to, so she and Vin­cent take her to see chil­dren’s en­ter­tainer Magic Marv in­stead. The

Hub­bards try to make the best of it, but the trip makes Vin­cent feel even more wretched about los­ing ev­ery­thing – so he in­sists they will make it up to Pearl with a proper party the next day.

But Vin­cent’s plans come to noth­ing when Ai­dan swoops in and warns him that time is tick­ing, and then Kim finds out that he’s fallen be­hind on their mort­gage re­pay­ments. The re­al­ity of their de­clin­ing wealth is be­com­ing clear, and even Donna takes her brother aside to find out what’s up. Vin­cent’s only hope is The Al­bert, and when it looks as if the sale can’t hap­pen, he feels that there’s no choice but to run.

“His life in Wal­ford is over, Ai­dan will see to that,” sighs our gos­sip. “He has to stay one step ahead now and try to sur­vive. He can’t take Kim and Pearl on the run with him, but Vin­cent rea­sons they have fam­ily who’ll take care of them and so writes a let­ter to say good­bye. How­ever, when he’s ready to leave, a call comes in that changes ev­ery­thing!”

It turns out Vin­cent can sell the bar af­ter all. Now Kim never has to know what he planned to do – un­less Vin­cent has left ev­i­dence be­hind…

Kim and Vin­cent are in fi­nan­cial dire straits… …and Ai­dan will kill if he doesn’t get what he’s owed
