This week in Shieldinch…
Maggie sets out to better herself but struggles to escape the sins of her past; Frankie’s eighteenth birthday presents her with some important life lessons; and Liz feels alone in marking the anniversary of Malcolm’s death.
Maggie is optimistic hopes of a new job at the Health Centre are dashed due to her drinking past. Desperate to work, she takes on a cleaning job at the Tall Ship but Ellie and Caitlin have reservations about a recovering alcoholic working in a pub surrounded by temptation. Maggie impresses Suzie but there’s trouble in store when booze goes missing. Maggie proclaims her innocence but when Suzie discovers the whisky in her handbag, she fires her. Caitlin is disgusted at her mum but Ellie is secretly guilt-ridden.
Elsewhere, Frankie’s eighteenth birthday celebrations prove tense as she snipes at her mother, Lorna, over anything and everything. Greig tries to lift the mood by taking his daughter on a night out but that sours when she bumps into former friend, Jules.
Witnessing his daughter’s vindictive side, Greig challenges Frankie about her attitude and urges her to stop pushing people away or face being alone in adulthood. Liz feels overlooked as the first anniversary of Malcolm’s arrives. Molly and Alasdair are so wrapped up in their own lives they’re unaware of the significant date. However, when Amber reminds them, Molly organises a surprise gathering at the Tall Ship to mark the occasion much to Liz’s delight.
