Pot luck

Ross and Finn find a cannabis farm – could this solve their fi­nan­cial woes?

TV Times - - Soaps -

Finn Bar­ton is sup­posed to be the brains of the fam­ily, yet the only idea he can come up with this week, when faced with the task of sav­ing his clan from fi­nan­cial ruin, is to be­come an es­cort. It all goes hor­ri­bly wrong, but, in the process, he and his brother Ross stum­ble upon a cannabis-grow­ing en­ter­prise up at Wylie’s Farm.

Finn comes up with his dis­as­trous plan af­ter the Bar­tons are re­jected for an­other loan. He knows there’s good money to be made – af­ter all, Tracy paid her old friend Nathan a packet to hang out with him. Bless him, though, he’s hardly ooz­ing con­fi­dence.

‘Finn is very ner­vous about it,’ ex­plains Joe Gill, who plays the cash-strapped geek. ‘He wants to keep his dig­nity, so he’s de­ter­mined to do ev­ery­thing he can to get out of go­ing all the way with his clients.’

When the fam­ily find out that Emma is still pay­ing rent for

Wylie’s Farm, Finn is even more de­ter­mined to help, and lands his first pay­ing cus­tomer. ‘It soon be­comes ob­vi­ous that this guy wants more than just com­pany,’ says Joe. ‘Finn pan­ics, takes his money and runs – a long way!’

Ross gets wind of what Finn is up to, and they both end up at Wylie’s. As the pair are about to leave, Ross trips on a ca­ble and the broth­ers open a door to find rows of cannabis plants pros­per­ing nicely.

‘Finn can’t be­lieve what he is see­ing,’ says Joe. ‘At first, he proper freaks out about it. But then Ross calms him down and makes him see that there could be a pos­i­tive side to their dis­cov­ery.’

Are the broth­ers about to be­come dodgy drug deal­ers?
