Fu­ri­ous Phe­lan dishes out an ul­ti­ma­tum to his mor­tal en­emy, Anna…

Phe­lan has so far made a suc­cess of stitch­ing up his en­emy, Anna, by fram­ing her for Seb’s near-fa­tal fall, but this week he’s given cause to tar­get the mum, who’s out on bail, again.

Twists the knife

When mur­derer Phe­lan re­turns from his break away with Eileen, he’s pleased to see his meticulous plan­ning has paid off. In his ab­sence, Phe­lan’s cronies have fol­lowed his in­struc­tions to burn down the house he was ‘do­ing up’. He’s also sat­is­fied to hear Anna has suf­fered con­se­quences since Seb ‘fell’, and fur­ther twists the knife by telling the po­lice he wit­nessed Anna smack­ing Seb, her adopted daugh­ter Faye’s boyfriend, in the face.

While his at­tack on Anna is brew­ing away nicely, in other ar­eas of his life, Phe­lan is fail­ing. His re­la­tion­ship with his daugh­ter, Nicola – who has learnt that he raped her mum and Anna – is ru­ined and, this week, she tells him she’s mov­ing to Aus­tralia.

De­ter­mined to keep hold of Nicola, Phe­lan takes im­me­di­ate ac­tion. In the builders’ yard, he un­earths Vinny’s bag, re­moves his cash and then burns his dou­ble-cross­ing ex-part­ner’s pass­port… But what’s he plan­ning to do with mur­dered Vinny’s money?

Evil de­mand

Blam­ing Anna for Nicola’s planned exit, Phe­lan can barely con­tain his rage. In a bid to force her to com­ply to a shock de­mand, Phe­lan in­forms her his daugh­ter is car­ry­ing her son Gary’s baby. Anna is stunned, but when Phe­lan goes on to roll out his lat­est evil threat, will Anna com­ply?
