Review

Mick (Danny Dyer) and Linda (Kellie Bright) have been running the Vic for six months now and what a difference they’ve made – not only to the atmosphere in the pub, but to the show in general. The great thing about the Carter family is that our perceptions of them keep shifting as the layers of their personalities are gradually peeled back.

In the spotlight in this episode is it’s Linda, a character viewers have warmed to despite her prejudice against son Johnny’s sexuality. What we haven’t been aware of, though – at least until now – is her own traumatic past. It’s a back story that gets probed during a heart-to-heart with Stan.

Summary

Linda worries when Johnny doesn't return home, so Stan takes his daughter-in-law on a trip down memory lane to make her see how her behaviour is driving a wedge between her and her son. Back in Walford, Mick escapes the family dramas and heads back to the swimming pool, where an unlikely Good Samaritan finally helps him face the water, while Phil is shocked when he awakes to find an intruder in his bedroom. Tosh and Tina head to a Gay Pride celebration, although the latter's choice of costume annoys her girlfriend.
