Carol, Tommy and Leo square-off in Thursday's Fair City on RTÉ One.

The festive fisticuffs are all part of the fallout from Leo's son Dean being shot by the unhinged Tyler.

Leo blamed Carol for all the mayhem - and then punched Tommy when he stood up for her.

Now, Dean has told Leo that he will not see him until he makes up with Tommy - and Carol has a unique proposal for how to bury the hatchet.

"One punch," she tells Tommy as Leo prepares to take his medicine in the Station.

"Get it over with," says Leo.

"This is stupid," says Tommy. "I can't just punch him in cold blood!"

"Is there one real man left in Dublin?!" shouts Carol as she readies a haymaker.

Fans can find out what happens next on Thursday on RTÉ One at 8:00pm.
