This week in Shieldinch…Annie unwittingly puts herself in danger when she tries to help a vulnerable young woman in The Candle Room; Frankie discovers a hidden family secret which, if exposed, will rip the Roths apart; and Alasdair hopes to make up for the sins of his past by helping Jules when she becomes homeless.
Annie’s night out with sister Lorna is interrupted when she meets Faith, a woman who takes a bad turn at the club. Annie sees she’s seriously unwell and urges her to seek medical help but Faith is more concerned about getting back to her client. Suspecting the worst, Annie challenges Alex about prostitutes operating in his club.
However, it’s not long before Annie’s efforts to help Faith puts them both in jeopardy when it’s discovered Rick is behind the operation.
Elsewhere, Greig is none-too-happy to learn Lorna drunk texted her ex, Andy, and blames Annie for encouraging her.
Later, Frankie overhears Greig and Annie argue about a past incident. She puts the pieces together and confronts Annie with the secret, knowing it will send shockwaves through the family. Robbie is left reeling when his mum, Suzie, considers throwing a divorce party.
Saddened at the prospect, Robbie struggles to keep a lid on his emotions while managing his back injury pain. Trying to right the wrongs of his past, Alasdair comes to Jules’ aid when he discovers she is homeless, arranging her lodgings at the Tall Ship.
However, his act of charity proves costly when Suzie asks for rent money.
