There’s family disharmony for Eve when Maggie uncovers her secret.
Dougie steps up his love scam by luring Suzie with a dream getaway plan.
Ellie is rocked by AJ’s shocking confession.
Suspicious about Eve’s growing interest in her patient Lou, nurse Maggie performs her own investigation and does some digging. Piecing together information, Maggie confronts Eve - who is forced to admit she is Lou’s biological mother. Eve begs Maggie to help her get close to Lou but her plans are scuppered when her wayward son,
Dylan, arrives in Shieldinch.
Unhappy Dylan has thrown away his university studies to party, Eve tells Dylan to pack his bags and leave. As tensions mount between Eve and Dylan, Lou inadvertently plays peacemaker between the warring mother and son, oblivious she’s related to them both.
Elsewhere, as the wedding pressures continue to mount, Dougie feels cornered into fast-tracking his scam to steal money from an unsuspecting Suzie. Claiming that it’s Suzie he wants to be with, not Scarlett, Dougie manipulates her into thinking they have a future together in Tuscany. All they need is the money to fund their new life in the sun - Suzie’s money.
Worried the fostering panel will think he’s too old, AJ’s problems worsen when a newspaper headline suggests he is homophobic. Desperate to show Ellie he’s liberal and open-minded, AJ decides to host a Pride party in the Oyster café.
River City is a BBC Studios production for BBC One / BBC Scotland.
