River City: 1305 (S2022EP8 BBC Scotland Mon 21 Feb 2022)



This week in Shieldinch… Stevie and Sam dupe Bernie into uncovering the identity of Scarlett’s mystery man; the Foulkes brothers spoil birthday girl Nicole in very different ways; and while Lenny’s at his wit’s ends in his search for Lydia, Ash decides to let Caitlin down gently.

Suspecting his mum has a mystery man, Stevie speaks to Sam about who it might be. Realising Bernie probably knows, they dupe her into revealing it’s Andrew Campbell-Baxter.

Meanwhile, Scarlett and Andrew meet secretly and talk about their son, Stevie. Andrew makes it clear he’s keen to meet Stevie but Scarlett remains unconvinced. Respecting her decision, Andrew suggests he leaves, making Scarlett realises how much she wants him in her life again.
When Stevie spots inconsistencies in Bernie’s story, he presses his aunt for information. Panicking, Bernie tries – but fails – to warn Scarlett that Stevie’s close to uncovering the truth.

Also this week, it’s Nicole’s birthday and Darren plans private dining at The Two Jailbirds with Tyler as waiter. However, his controlling behaviour quickly overshadows the celebrations, putting Nicole on edge.

When business demands pull Darren away, Nicole spends time with Tyler and is touched by his thoughtful birthday present.

Following devastating news about his Lydia investigation, Lenny grows increasingly paranoid someone close to him is trying to sabotage his search. It’s not long before Karen becomes Lenny’s key culprit and he sets about trying to find out who is pulling her strings, and why.

AJ warns Ash his fling with Caitlin is a bad idea. Ash decides to let Caitlin down gently but is stunned when she rejects the idea of a serious relationship with him.
