River City: Mon 1 Nov 2021 (1291) (S2021EP48 BBC Scotland Mon 1 Nov 2021)



This week in Shieldinch… Lenny’s homecoming is overshadowed by recent shocking revelations; Darren’s attempts to woo Nicole go awry; and while Caitlin grows suspicious of Ellie’s secretive behaviour, Karen finally finds some common ground with Jessie.

Troubled by Rachel Grant’s confession, Lenny turns to his loyal confidant, Mick Mulvaney, for guidance. Mulvaney disputes claims that Lydia is alive, adamant that they are just hurtful lies, but reluctantly agrees to see what he can uncover for Lenny.

After an awkward exchange with Mulvaney in the street, Amber suspects her father is keeping something from the family, and corners Lenny, demanding to know what’s going on. She’s shocked to hear about the attempted hit, but Lenny stops at telling her about the Lydia revelations – for now.

Elsewhere, Darren turns to Suzie for advice on how to win Nicole’s affections. Suzie sets about creating the perfect date at Molly’s Corner complete with champagne, chocolates and flowers, but Bernie’s behaviour threatens to ruin the romance.

Stressed about her debts, Caitlin remains resolute about the decision to reject Uncle John’s inheritance, little realising Ellie’s taken it instead. However, when Caitlin spots Ellie talking to Laura the lawyer, she grows suspicious of her sister.

Meanwhile, Ellie’s guilt grows and she turns to Roisin for advice who tells her what she already knows: it’s only a matter of time before Caitlin uncovers the truth.

Karen and Jessie spend the day together and finally begin to open up to one another. Jessie talks to Karen about online dating, but Karen’s clearly unsettled by messages on her phone, her mind elsewhere.
