Max finds out that Rainie slept with Jack. Has she ruined their chances of getting baby Abi?
He feels that just as they were approaching the finish line, she’s gone and blown it for them
Brace yourselves for a proper Walford slanging match this week, as Max finds out that Rainie slept with Jack… and from Cora of all people. How they heck does she know? Has she got a super-strength spy camera hidden in her up-do?
The big reveal comes in a piercing statement via Cora’s solicitor. Gutsy granny Cora, who’s fighting Max and Rainie for custody of baby Abi, claims it’s proof that the couple’s marriage is a sham. Max thinks it’s a wild accusation at first, but the guilty look on Rainie’s face tells him that his wife has, indeed, done horizontal gymnastics with his brother. And, when he confronts Jack, his sibling ’fesses up.
‘Max is furious,’ reveals our Enders mole, ‘not least because of the possible ramifications.
‘He and Rainie have gone to great lengths to convince the authorities that they are happily married and can provide a stable family life for Abi, and he feels just as they were approaching the finish line, she’s gone and blown it for them.’
Max is flummoxed as to how Cora knew about the fling, and decides to deny everything. Rainie doesn’t help matters when she bumps into Cora, and all hell breaks loose.
Max calms his missus down and later he goes to check on baby Abi, who is at Ian’s place. He walks into another fight, which ends with Cora attacking Rainie. In the melee, Max scoops up Abi and is set to go AWOL when the police arrive and put the kiddie into care.
Recovering in hospital, Rainie agrees with Max to press charges against her mother. Ian insists he won’t support Cora’s custody battle, leaving her position weaker than ever, but sombre Max knows his own application is in jeopardy.
Will Rainie’s night of passion with Jack destroy everything?
