Gary’s se­cret

The former squad­die re­turns with more than a bruised ego

TV Times - - Soaps -

Gary ar­rives back from Ukraine this week, but his bulging wal­let isn’t the only thing he has to show for his se­cu­rity work.

Un­be­known to Sarah, his back and ribs are cov­ered in bruises. What ex­actly has hap­pened to him while he was in the war-torn coun­try?

The former sol­dier turns up with­out warn­ing at Sarah’s par­ent sup­port group. She’s gone to the meet­ing hop­ing it will help her cope with daugh­ter Bethany’s groom­ing or­deal. Ini­tially, she gives Gary the cold shoul­der as she told him they were fin­ished when he chose the con­tract over her. But he soon wins her over.

‘Sarah’s quite frosty with him, but as she opens up about what hap­pened to Bethany, she al­lows him to com­fort her,’ says Tina O Brien, who plays her. ‘As he talks about his feel­ings for her, she re­alises she doesn’t want to be with­out him.’

But, no sooner has Sarah got used to Gary be­ing home, he re­veals that he’s fly­ing back to Ukraine for a new job. ‘Sarah’s gob­s­macked’, adds Tina. ‘She can’t ac­cept his news, and it puts a real strain on their re­la­tion­ship.’

Fail­ing to change Gary’s mind, Sarah de­cides to make the most of the time they have left to­gether and sug­gests an af­ter­noon ‘lie down.’ She’s hurt when he pulls away from her, but un­der­stands when he says it’s be­cause he needs to see his son, Jake. Sarah has no idea Gary is ly­ing to her. As he pulls off his shirt while alone, it’s clear he’s avoid­ing get­ting in­ti­mate be­cause he doesn’t want her to see his in­juries.

As Gary pre­pares to jet back to the dan­ger zone, will Sarah dis­cover his painful se­cret?
