Episode Summary

Bev's Story
Good-time girl Bev likes a drink and a laugh, but life hasn't turned out quite as planned. She's lonely, her only son is nothing but trouble and it seems like the fun times are gone for ever. When Mal, widower and regular nice guy, turns up to service a machine at Mackintosh's, Bev suddenly glimpses a possible future and, from where she sits, it looks just fine. Knowing that Mal has always had a bit of a thing for her, she flirts and he asks her out. Mal's teenage sons Alex and Scott (Nicky Evans and Bryan Dick) take an instant dislike to Bev, but Mal is besotted, feeling alive for the first time since his wife died.When Bev moves in, bringing her tacky knick-knacks with her, Mal's eldest son is furious. The situation worsens when Bev tells him that his mother and father's relationship was not perfect—especially when it came to sex. Even Bev realises that this was a bad move, but she is a fighter and in pursuit of Mal and everything that comes with him—nice house, nice life, she is a formidable enemy. And with Mal blind to all her faults, she can't lose. His son leaves home, and Mal and Bev become engaged. Shortly after, she announces she is pregnant. When she loses the baby, it binds Mal to her more tightly. Then one day, during a drunken conversation in a bar with Julie, Bev reveals that the pregnancy was not all it seemed.moreless
