SPOILER ALERT - don't read ahead if you don't want to know what's coming up on Fair City.
Being caught getting frisky with your ex-wife was never going to end well for Louie but even he was shocked when Renée demanded €20,000 to stay quiet. Louie and Ingrid have been scrambling while Renée mercilessly applied the pressure, threatening to tell Carol of their affair at any time.
There was a shift however when Yvonne encouraged Louie to call Renée's bluff. Louie's refusal to pay made Renée desperate. She decided to tell Bob of Louie's affair with Ingrid and Bob grabbed the opportunity with both hands. Knowledge is power after all and Bob has wielded that power to humiliating effect.
The battle with Bob gives Louie renewed focus in his fight to keep his house of cards with Carol from falling. Yvonne proves to be an invaluable ally as she gets the dirt on Renée and gives Louie the chance to smugly throw Renée's threats back in her face.

After debt. I doubt you were as quick to tell
Bob your own secrets.
RENEE GLARES AT YVONNE.
I see you haven't changed. You were
always a sly, deceitful witch.
Walking around like a mini tycoon. You're
as big a failure as you always were, only
with a lot more miles on the clock.
LOUIE FLINGS ANOTHER LETTER AT
There is nothing in there that Bob doesn't
ALL KNOW SHE IS BLUFFING.
TRYING TO MAINTAIN IT
The price just doubled.
He can thank you. Now get out.
It's beautiful you have such an honest relationship with Bob.
Mrs Renee de Souza.

Maybe you should invite your Brazilian husband to join you the next time you and Bob are being so open with each other.
