This week in Shieldinch...
The heat is on Lou, as Lenny discovers she’s working undercover.
Bob and Angus try to scupper Kim’s love life.
Poppy finds herself the unwanted target of a gangster’s attentions.
It’s Lenny’s 60th birthday and Lou is presented with an unwanted gift from DCI Rachel Grant - a hidden camera to entrap Lenny once and for all.
However, unbeknown to Lou, a shadowy figure has taken photos of their clandestine meeting, forwarding them to Lenny. Lou grows increasingly paranoid that her cover will be blown, and her worst fears are confirmed when Sonny goes missing.
Lou is left with no choice but to confront Lenny. Holding all the aces, Lenny explains his dilemma to Lou: avoid violence and lose face with the criminal fraternity, or deal with DCI Grant.
Fearing for her family’s safety, Lou turns to Jac for help but refuses to heed her warnings about DCI Grant.
Elsewhere, Bob and Angus try to scupper Kim’s plans to go on a date by doing everything in their power to block Kim’s attempts to get a babysitter for the night - even if it means helping Madonna with her plans for Lenny’s 60th birthday party.
Buoyed by a recent successful case, Poppy finds herself in demand by local gangster Tyler Fox who is looking for a new lawyer. Unnerved by Tyler’s creepy behaviour, Poppy rebuffs him, but Tyler won’t take no for an answer. When Tyler oversteps the mark, Cameron intervenes and comes to Poppy’s rescue.
