Fair City fans were left frustrated after Wednesday night's episode which saw Katy almost escape after a year of being held captive by Ciaran.
In the episode, Ciaran came very close to finally letting Katy go only to receive a phone call about Farrah being rushed to hospital to distract him from setting a newly 'blonde' Katy free.
Viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the close call with one user saying, "All I want for my birthday is for Katy to be released from the box."
Reckon Enda Kenny isn't going to step down until Katy is free...... #FairCity— Niamh (@NiamhPitts) April 26, 2017
Another said the storyline is "ridic at this stage" with it also being labelled "frustrating."
An online petition that received over 6,000 signatures was formed to end the story-line, with Fair City writers saying it was necessary to take their "time to unfold" the plot fully as it "allows us to explore different facets of the drama and how it impacts each of the characters."
