River City Mon 25 Oct on BBC Scotland



This week in Shieldinch… Caitlin contemplates a deal with the devil in order to solve her mounting financial woes; Lenny’s back and sets his sights on confronting a blast from the past; and while Nicole is spurned by Darren, Bernie and Suzie hatch a fundraising plan for Molly’s Corner.

Overwhelmed with money worries, Caitlin confides in Ellie. When her lawyer, Laura, tries to contact her, Caitlin assumes she’s chasing payment – however there’s a shock in store.

At a meeting with Laura, Caitlin is stunned to discover that John has gifted her a sizeable inheritance. But there’s a hitch: not a penny of it goes to Maggie.

Torn about what best to do, Caitlin visits Maggie and is encouraged to see her mother so much happier. As the women talk, Caitlin is reminded about how much trauma John caused, and resigns herself to rejecting the inheritance.

Knowing Ellie is next in line for the money, Caitlin feels confident that her sister will also turn the money down. Yet Ellie is enraged at Caitlin’s controlling behaviour.

Elsewhere, Lenny is back from Sicily and on a mission to find out who put a hit out on him. He visits his number one suspect in prison – former police detective, Rachel Grant.

As the nemeses spar, Grant delivers devastating news to Lenny, which makes him question everything he believes in and all he holds dear. Nicole goes to great lengths to get Darren’s attention and reignite their relationship – with embarrassing consequences.

Desperate to raise funds for Molly’s Corner, Suzie and Bernie find inspiration thanks to words of encouragement from Jessie.

Caitlin is played by Gayle Telfer Stevens, Lenny by Frank Gallagher, Nicole by Holly Jack, Darren by Sammy Hayman, Bernie by Barbara Rafferty, Suzie by Juliet Cadzow, Ellie by Leah MacRae, Laura by Jennifer Black, Maggie by Kathryn Howden, Rachel Grant by Therese Bradley and Jessie by Kirsty Pickering.
