In the penultimate episode of Kat and Alfie: Redwater, Eileen (Angeline Ball) is quick to put a positive spin on the house fire, suggesting that they can claim on the insurance to give them the money they need to get the cookery business off the ground.
Bernie (Susan Ateh) is still suspicious that Lance’s (Ian McElhinney) death wasn’t a heart attack, but who would want to kill him?
However, she has other priorities, such as the christening of their new son. Rather than a joyous affair, the christening is taut with unspoken resentment.
The christening is an upsetting time for Eileen as it brings up painful memories of Mouse. Finding herself being comforted by an old friend does not go unnoticed by sister Roisin (Maria Doyle Kennedy). The atmosphere at the christening is soon soured however when Dermott (Oisin Stack) and Peter (Stanley Townsend) have a heated exchange.
Meanwhile Alfie (Shane Ritchie) is concerned about his health and needs Dermott’s help. Unsure of his own future and aware of his own mortality, Alfie asks Dermott to baptise him.
