There are dramatic scenes ahead on Fair City when Tessa and Katy turn the tables on Ciarán.

Coming up on Tuesday's episode, the hostage stand-off involving Ciarán, Rose, Katy and Tessa takes another turn.

Tessa innocently asks Ciarán if she can get a blanket for Rose, while Katy tries to reason with him.

"Give yourself a chance. Let us go home", Katy pleads. 

"We can walk out of here together, like we did from the box, remember?" she continues, as she holds her hand out to Ciarán, prompting him to put down the knife.

An emotional Ciarán puts his hand in Katy's, when Tessa suddenly throws the blanket over his head, momentarily obstructing his vision.

"What are you doing?" he angrily shouts.

"Stay back!" Tessa warns, as she brandishes the knife she has grabbed from him...
