Innocent and on the run
FACING YEARS IN PRISON FOR A CRIME HE NEVER COMMITTED, Andy TAKES DRASTIC MEASURES TO SAFEGUARD HIS FREEDOM.
Everywhere Andy Sugden turns, he sees the walls closing in. Languishing in prison as he awaits trial on charges of shooting Lawrence White, Andy has no idea that his aggrieved lover Chrissie is framing him in revenge for his affair with her stepmum Bernice. Chrissie knows that her own son Lachlan really shot Lawrence and she’s desperate to keep him quiet, especially when he almost spills the beans to Andy. Suspicious, Andy has his lawyer Rakesh investigate Lachlan’s possible guilt, but Chrissie blackmails Rakesh to get Andy sent down. He pleads not guilty but is denied bail, sending him over the edge. Imploring Rakesh to help him as he can’t go to jail, Andy desperately escapes from his cell, thanks to his lawyer’s distraction, and flees on foot. Sneaking into Home Farm to confront Chrissie, he’s horrified to be told she’s framing him before she tries to set him up for stabbing her right there and then! With the aid of his brother Robert, Andy gets away...
Making plans to permanently flee town, Andy confesses his love to Bernice and sadly leaves her, boarding a truck bound for an uncertain new existence in Santander, Spain.
