This week in Shieldinch… realising Ellie faces IVF alone, Caitlin has a choice to make about their feud; Kim’s plans for the future stall when chilling news puts her family in jeopardy; and while Stevie bonds with Sam, Scarlett’s past catches up with her.

With her egg harvesting appointment looming, Ellie turns to Roisin for support. Roisin urges Ellie to make amends with Caitlin; at times like these she needs her family around her.

Seeing Ellie grow closer to Roisin, Caitlin can’t help but feel jealous. Roisin urges Caitlin to make amends – before it’s too late.

However, as the friends look forward to their new future together, Lou brings shocking news from Kim’s past.

Stevie and Sam try to find some common ground and build their relationship. However, Stevie’s attempts to become a football aficionado fall short.

Later, Scarlett is stunned when Duncan confronts her about their shared past… and he knows the truth.
