DARK SIDE OF THE MOON
Here’s a prediction. There is nothing this show loves more than a full moon at Christmas, and the white disc is usually wheeled out whenever Kat and Alfie have a bit of a bonding/re-bonding session (Alfie Moon – geddit? Will they ever tire of that gag?). So, my guess is that the props department is already dusting off the full moon in time for a festive love-fest. While Alfie and Kat play happy families (inset), we all know of course that it can’t last when Alfie is revealed as the Baby Daddy of Hayley’s infant. The only question is when that’s
going to happen. My guess would be Christmas Day. That’s when high drama usually happens, just to save the show from having to feed everyone, should any character threaten to eat anything on Christmas Day (they won’t; trust me).
Shirley is back in Mafia mode when she warns Linda to extricate a confession from Stuart, or else they do things her way (although her hair alone is usually enough to put the frighteners on anyone). Linda embarks on her plan but is left feeling guilty when she and Stuart kiss. But how far is she prepared to go to get what she needs?
