Laoise is bucking mad, Sonia's life is in a good place and Áine finally does things the Ó Direáin way.

Laoise sees red when she finds out Emma has a new power, which is about to stymie her honey-making business plan. Micheál is taken aback at her temper tantrum and warns her that her ranting and raving won't solve anything.

Just when Sonia was content with her life, the surprise arrival of her estranged brother Dan throws her into a spin. How does she tell her young son, Sam that he has an uncle? How can his long absence be explained? And how will Sam’s dad, Pádraig take it?

They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and this week Áine proves she’s certainly her father’s daughter when she tackles her bully. Once she overcomes her initial fear, she clenches her fist and lets rip.

Mack has had good reason to be gloomy but Sonia brings him hope when she gives him evidence that he couldn’t possibly have given Dee those bruises.

Laoise is determined to prove Emma’s true colours and finds interesting texts on Emma’s phone that might be just the evidence she needs. These are texts that suggest there may have been something more than friendship between Emma and Vince.

Pádraig gets a jolt when he sees his old flame Dan back in the village but of course he knows there can never be anything between them again, especially now, if he wants to stay on good terms with Sonia, and even more importantly, stay in their son’s life.

Tadhg is far from pleased when Áine is blamed for bullying but believes it’s time for him to do something about it.

Vince is smiling like the cat who licked the cream and believing that things are much improved between him and Caitríona, he decides it’s time he proposed.
