The wait for Fair City fans is finally over as Katy has been reunited with her family after a year in captivity - but their trauma is far from over.
Thursday night's episode saw Katy make her way back to Carrigstown, where she was seen by Gardaí tearing down a missing person poster of herself.
After an emotional reunion with her parents, it soon became apparent that the O'Briens are still a family in crisis.

Katy was questioned by Gardaí about her kidnapper Ciarán and insisted he had died, but Ciarán's emotional hold on her continues.
It was then discovered that Ciarán had called someone when he and Katy were on the run - putting Farrah in the frame.
Back at the O'Briens, Katy told her parents that Emmet had raped Ciarán's sister and was the reason she had been kidnapped.
As the O'Briens tore themselves apart, the episode closed with Debbie leaving the house, setting up what looks like family civil war in Carrigstown.
