This week in Carraigstown, Orla is worried as she thinks Wayne isn’t willing to take their relationship seriously, while Paul and Niamh worry about the bullying that Rachel has been going through.
Dan asks Yvonne why she is ignoring his calls but she cuts him down and says she’s sorry but she doesn’t want to go out with him. When he pushes her, she raises her voice and says she doesn’t need him. Dan is angry at her blowing hot and cold and says she is messing him around and leaves.
Elsewhere, Orla is worried as she thinks Wayne isn’t willing to take their relationship seriously and she discusses her worries with Carol. Wayne confides in Charlie trying to figure out what’s upset Orla and he wonders if she is still raging about the quiz. Charlie points out she’s probably upset as he knows so little about her, Wayne dismisses his advice to apologise and buy her a little present. Orla further exasperates Wayne when she is short with him as tensions are still running high.
Meanwhile, Dan tries to make peace with Yvonne but Yvonne maintains they’d be better off keeping their distance from each other. Carol wants to know what’s going on but Dan refuses to discuss it with her. Dan tries again to resolve things with Yvonne but Yvonne still isn’t interested. When Dan learns Yvonne is in need of supplies in Vinos he sends Sean over with some from the Station.
Later in the week, Paul and Niamh worry about the bullying that Rachel has been going through and are determined to pay more attention from now on. They ask Callum if he’ll help keep an eye on her but when he tries to talk to her, Rachel fobs him off despite the fact she is still getting pranks calls. Meanwhile Paul is stunned when Jane returns with a sunny glow.
Also, Laura is coming home to get the results of her HIV test and Damien is worried. Wayne tries to reassure him but Damien is unsure of how to deal with Laura when she returns. Laura arrives home and pops in to see Dolores. She reveals how she got off the beaten track in America and gained some perspective having seen so many people suffering in poverty.
