River City Mon 11 Oct on BBC Scotland



This week in Shieldinch… Caitlin’s vow to protect Maggie falters as her mother’s mental health deteriorates; Angus and Rebecca play Bob at his own game; and Stevie’s torn when he finds out the truth about his absent father.

An anxious Caitlin tries to hide Maggie’s drinking relapse, but Ellie’s sceptical it was a one off. Worse still, the sisters find out Maggie stopped taking her medication, and Caitlin’s blind faith that all will be well irks Ellie.

Maggie tries to assure Caitlin her hallucinations have stopped and she needs family support – not medication – to get better. Ellie turns to Roisin for advice, but Maggie is suspicious of her concern, fearing that she’ll be sectioned.

As Maggie dramatically falls apart she lashes out at Caitlin, who reluctantly concedes that Roisin might be the only one who can make Maggie seek much-needed help.

Elsewhere, Angus and Rebecca suspect Bob’s playing matchmaker again so they can spend time alone. Fed up with his interference, the pair plot their revenge, faking an accident at work to force Bob to the garage.

Stevie seeks out Lou who hands him a file on his absent father, Sam Spiller. The power is in Stevie’s hands to seek out his dad, but when Lou tells him he served time for a violent crime, Stevie stalls. Worried about the repercussions of finding Sam, Stevie confides in Sonny, who takes matters into his own hands.

Suzie and Bernie clash over the opening day plans for Molly’s Corner. Stubborn and headstrong, the women question whether they have what it takes to be business partners.
