RTÉ Guide - - Soaps -

e saga over baby Abi es­ca­lates this week as Cora gets hold of some in­for­ma­tion that could dam­age Max’s chances of get­ting cus­tody. It be­gins with a bomb­shell for Max and Rainie as they re­ceive a let­ter from Cora’s so­lic­i­tor stat­ing that their mar­riage is il­le­git­i­mate due to Rainie’s in delity with Jack. is leads to a con­fronta­tion be­tween the two broth­ers, while Rainie begs Max to for­give her. Max, how­ever, is fu­ri­ous about the con­se­quences for his cus­tody bat­tle. Nev­er­the­less, he can­not help but won­der where Cora got her in­for­ma­tion from, and vows to deny ev­ery­thing in the hope she might be blu ng.

Later, Rainie ex­tends an olive branch to Cora, sug­gest­ing they ought to do what’s best for Abi. How­ever, Cora is in no mood to com­pro­mise and as ten­sions mount, she ends up lash­ing out at Rainie, leav­ing her in­jured and in need of hos­pi­tal treat­ment. See­ing this, Max takes ad­van­tage of the chaos and makes a hasty re­treat with baby Abi, tak­ing refuge with Stacey and ask­ing her for help. How­ever, grand­fa­ther and grand­daugh­ter are not re­united for long as the po­lice turn up to take the lit­tle one away. Learn­ing that Abi has been taken away and is be­ing cared for by so­cial ser­vices, a dev­as­tated Rainie de­cides to press charges against Cora for her ear­lier vi­o­lent re­sponse. She and Max then ap­proach Ian to apol­o­gise for the trou­ble they have caused, and he agrees to with­draw his sup­port for Cora’s cus­tody ap­pli­ca­tion. But de­spite this pos­i­tive devel­op­ment, Max re­mains con­cerned that Rainie’s volatil­ity has per­ma­nently hin­dered his prospects of gain­ing cus­tody of his grand­daugh­ter. Will Rainie’s state­ment to the po­lice do more harm than good? Else­where, there’s plenty more tur­moil in the o ng for Hay­ley, who is at rst in high spir­its hav­ing man­aged to get her baby to set­tle. How­ever, her ela­tion is short-lived as Bev sets about try­ing to put her o mother­hood by crit­i­cis­ing her ev­ery move. But that isn’t the limit of her plans, and when Hay­ley over­hears her on the tele­phone, she is horri ed by what her mother is try­ing to do. Des­per­ate for help, Hay­ley se­cretly reaches out to Jean, but Bev gets wind of this and pre­vents Jean from get­ting too close. Later, Bev makes Kat a lu­cra­tive o er if she can help get Hay­ley to come around to her way of think­ing with re­gard to her baby.

Mean­while, Ti any in­ad­ver­tently lands her­self in all kinds of trou­ble as she makes a feisty new friend called Evie in McK­lunky’s. Evie’s un­in­hib­ited bold­ness ini­tially im­presses Ti any, and the pair end up get­ting to know each other over lunch, but there is a shock in store. Ti any then in­curs Whit­ney’s anger by skip­ping school to meet Evie again, and this time, her new friend has a trou­bling favour to ask.

ere’s re­lief for Dot when Dr Legg as­suages her fears about the con­tent of his let­ter. How­ever, the pair get a nasty shock when they pay a visit to his par­ents’ grave to dis­cover that it has been van­dalised.
