So John Stape managed to convince Eddie and Anna that he was a big shot furniture salesman. He and Fizz also came clean to Chesney about the stolen identity thing, which caused him to storm out, as he does. Kirk brought him back and suggested a family meeting was in order.
Later, Fizz finds Ches at the market and tries to justify why a convicted felon would steal a person’s identity so he can work at a high school. (Gee, it does sound bad when you put it that way). Ches is frank with his sister – he thinks John will screw this up and that she’s an idiot, but she is his sister and that’s that.
So that seems all well and good until Charlotte shows up, this time claiming Colin’s back in town. After glomming onto John and going through their wine, Fizz decides she’s had enough of the double entendres and throws her out. But they’re left wondering what to do.
Work has begun on Underworld, so that it may rise from the ashes like the phoenix who burned his bum. Carla and Nick have an uneasy truce and Owen is throwing his weight around and making life difficult for Bill.
Sally’s back and recovered from her cancer treatment (a storyline that paralleled the actress’s own battle with breast cancer) and has a new positive outlook on life that includes running, taking Sophie and Sian out shopping, and drinking wine at 10:00am. She’s quite keen to get the girls all glammed up for the school prom but neither of them seem all that into finding a boy to be their dates. Sian, meanwhile, has a mysterious belly ache. Ryan meanwhile wants to take Sian to a music festival, reckoning that there is something still there between them.
