Res­cue mis­sion

TV Times - - Soaps -

Grant steps in as Ben and Jay are ab­ducted by Paul’s killers

he Mitchell fam­ily is thrown into a state of panic when Ben and Jay are bun­dled into a van by the thugs who killed Paul Coker. As Phil is about as much use as a choco­late saucepan in his cur­rent state, Court­ney gets on the blower and begs her dad, Grant, to help.

Grant ar­rives look­ing like a pumped-up bouncer and pre­pares to search for Ben and Jay, with his al­co­holic brother in tow. Phil’s in a bad way. Last week’s beat­ing from Ben’s kid­nap­pers proves too much for his ail­ing liver and he col­lapses.

With Phil out for the count, it’s down to Grant and Mark to res­cue

Tthe lads, but first they need to track down the ab­duc­tors. They turn to ex-cop­per Jack to find out where the boys have been taken.

Jack gets some in­side in­for­ma­tion that could prove use­ful and Mark and Grant set off on a res­cue mis­sion. Alone in the car, nei­ther of them re­alises they are fa­ther and son, thanks to the fact that Grant had a one-night stand with Michelle Fowler in 1995.

Back in the Square, Ian and Sharon are still de­ter­mined that no­body should twig that Grant is Mark’s real dad. Clearly, no­body is go­ing rum­ble the big se­cret by fam­ily re­sem­blance alone – the love child of Grant Mitchell and Michelle Fowler should look more like Masterchef judge Gregg Wal­lace than a young Brad Pitt.

Will Grant and Mark man­age to res­cue Ben and Jay, or are they ca­reer­ing head first into dan­ger­ous wa­ters? Noth­ing will faze Grant, who’s been there and got all the T-shirts, but Mark looks about as hard as a bag of marsh­mal­lows.

‘He might not have that tough Mitchell side,’ says Harry Reid, who plays Ben. ‘It will be in­ter­est­ing to see how he is around his dad. It’s usu­ally Phil’s way or no way, but he’s out of the game now, so Ben and Jay are re­ly­ing on Grant and Mark. They thought they could deal with these guys them­selves, but they’re in way over their heads.’

Can Grant and Mark save

Ben and Jay – and will they then dis­cover that they’re more closely re­lated than they thought?

Grant and Mark hunt the kid­nap­pers. Will they also spot a fam­ily like­ness?
