FA­THER FROM THE TRUTH

Chrissie’s QUEST FOR THE FACTS ABOUT HER DAD BRINGS A GUN-TOT­ING MAD­MAN, KID­NAP­PERS, PARAMEDICS AND THE OLD BILL TO HOME FARM’S DOORSTEP!

Soap World - - PRIMETIME -

Ob­sessed with learn­ing the true iden­tity of her bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther, Chrissie is leav­ing no stone un­turned in her search. What she doesn’t know is that Lawrence is hid­ing cor­re­spon­dence he’s in­ter­cepted to pro­tect the woman he raised as his daugh­ter from find­ing the de­tails of her sor­did con­cep­tion and birth. No amount of per­sua­sion from his boyfriend Ron­nie will con­vince Lawrence to be hon­est and open with Chrissie – es­pe­cially af­ter he reads one let­ter from mystery man Tim Richards in­form­ing Chrissie that Lawrence has lied to her about her fa­ther her en­tire life!

In­stead of hon­esty Lawrence (John Bowe) chooses sub­terfuge, hir­ing se­cu­rity con­sul­tant Dean (Danny Ry­der) to track down and vi­o­lently deal with Tim (Mark Mor­aghan), who’s been stalk­ing the White fam­ily since he called Hot­ten FM to ac­cuse Lawrence of mur­der live on air! He has in­ti­mate knowl­edge of the af­fair that pro­duced Chrissie (Louise Mar­wood) decades ear­lier, and wants re­venge on Lawrence for the chaos he caused over it.

Out­raged over the sub­se­quent as­sault to si­lence him about his knowl­edge of Chrissie’s pa­ter­nity, Tim ramps up his cam­paign of pay­back against the White fam­ily, sneak­ing in to Home Farm dur­ing the clay pi­geon shoot fes­tiv­i­ties, armed with a stolen gun! Cor­ner­ing Lawrence, Tim re­sponds to his en­emy’s dare to kill him, im­pris­on­ing him un­con­scious in a car­bon monox­ide-filled car garage! For­tu­nately with para­medic aid, Lawrence sur­vives while the po­lice hunt for Tim.

Also hunt­ing the fugi­tive is an ag­grieved Lach­lan (Thomas Atkin­son), who wants to pun­ish Tim for con­tin­u­ally ha­rass­ing his grand­fa­ther over the is­sue of Lach­lan’s mother’s pa­ter­nity. Fur­ther mo­ti­vated by spy­ing Chrissie try­ing to kiss Tim, Lach­lan frets that if he tells her about her fa­ther the news will dev­as­tate her! Act­ing on the vi­o­lent in­stincts he honed in prison, Lach­lan and his old prison pal Gerry (Shaun Thomas) snatch Tim and crudely bind and gag him in the sta­bles!

Amid all the panic and may­hem, lives could be lost when a stressed Lawrence col­lapses again and is rushed to hospi­tal with a rup­tured aneurysm!

A bewil­dered Chrissie weeps at the thought of los­ing the one man who’s been a dad to her!
