Things are getting better for English teacher Christine Mulgrew and her son Connor. For a start she’s been sober for 90 days and she’s a much nicer person when she’s not been at the vodka. But all her lies and deceptions blow up in her face when Connor’s dad Joe (Derek Riddell) turns up unexpectedly at the school. Trouble is, Christine’s such a good storyteller, it’s hard to know when — if ever — she’s being truthful.
Meanwhile, Nikki is still convinced that Jodie nicked her car and is bullying the girl mercilessly — is this teacher really the right person to head up the Pupil Referral Unit? Or work with kids at all, for that matter?
Christine gets a shock when her estranged husband Joe turns up, wanting to talk about his father's will, and is unsettled when he shows an interest in Connor, the son he has never previously acknowledged. His presence eventually sends her into a spin - and when Michael rebuffs her pleas for support, she falls off the wagon in spectacular fashion. Nikki's bullying campaign against Scout continues, until one of the other pupils forces her to rethink her behaviour, Sian decides to separate the troublesome Barry children, believing Barry to be an unhealthy influence over his sisters Dynasty and Kacey, and guilt consumes Connor, who considers telling Imogen the truth about the fire.
