SOAP OF THE WEEK
mid-car chase resulted in the near death of Ryan and Leanne, the actual death of drug dealer Ronan, and the demise of Ali’s Hippocratic oath. In short, when it came to light that Abi was one of the very few people Steve hasn’t slept with, Tracy felt something resembling guilt, especially when she — yet again — had death on her hands. All was not lost, however. Due to lack of evidence (as in Tracy stole the garage CCTV footage of her mangling Michelle’s car) Abi was let off the hook by the police. Everyone’s a winner! Right? Nay. The damage was done. Questions have been raised regarding Abi’s ability to parent her twins, leaving the mum querying her self-worth to the point that, this week, she feels her kids would be better off with their foster parents. Decision made, Abi downs vodka before Tracy finds her unconscious due to an overdose.
Racked with guilt yet again, Tracy unburdens herself at Abi’s hospital bedside. Finding out what’s really happened, Seb sees red and trashes Tracy’s florist, which Abi then ends up taking the blame for. With Abi prison-bound, what will Seb do? Stick by his mum, or decide to apply to adopt the twins himself? Even if it means cutting Abi from his life altogether?
