LINDA SLEEPS WITH STUART?
How far will she go to get a confession?
With Linda having told Shirley that she’s using Stuart to try to get
Mick out of jail, it’s time for her to close the deal.
The landlady has spent weeks shunning her family and closing the door on her marriage to lure Stuart into a false sense of security and, ultimately, to confess that he framed Mick for the shooting.
Now it’s the moment of truth – but can Linda hold her nerve?
In The Vic, Linda’s winded when Stuart dons Mick’s Santa outfit for the pub’s grotto, and struggles to hide her turmoil.
There’s no time for emotion, however, as Shirley, Mick’s frustrated mum, reminds her.
‘Shirley tells Linda she has to do something immediately or she’s doing it her way,’ says Kellie Bright, who plays Linda.
Later, during a quiet moment with Stuart,
Linda forces herself to kiss him – and then runs out of the room.
‘She’s disgusted with what she’s done but she’s also so annoyed with herself for not being able to just do it. Linda’s put a lot of work in. She can’t let it all go now,’ adds Kellie.
The next day, Stuart’s got issues, too. Linda panics when he reveals he has too much respect for Mick to betray him!
Worried, Linda goes into overdrive to reel Stuart in. After convincing him to stick around after hours, she puts the wheels in motion…
‘Linda has to get as close to Stuart as she can if she’s got any hope of getting anything out of him,’ explains Kellie.
Just how far will Linda go – and will her plan work?
