Episode Summary

EDIT
Catherine and Mack's Story
AIRED:
On the morning after their wedding anniversary, Mack lavishes Katherine with gifts in a bid to hold onto her. After yet one more night of loveless sex, Katherine packs a few things into a case and - saying nothing - leaves the marital home for ever. When Mack discovers her half-empty closet, he realises that his marriage has finally disintegrated. But there is worse to come. As if losing his wife were not bad enough, Mack now risks losing the second most important thing in his life - the factory. The deeds to the factory building are in Katherine's name and, wanting to make a clean break from her marriage, she asks Mack to buy her out. But by keeping her financially dependent on him, he prevented her from leaving him in the past. If he bought back the building now, he would be severing any remaining connection. Mack's refusal forces Katherine to give him an ultimatum: he has 24 hours to sign the contract, or she offers the premises to his main competitor. Mack calls her bluff and the building is sold. Now Mack is liable for a 200% rent rise just to stay in the same premises. The increase will cripple the factory, put Mack out of business and render unemployed a community who depend on him for their livelihood. But Mack, distraught by Katherine's rejection of him, won't act to save himself. Is this the end for the factory? Will Mack's obsessive love for Katherine precipitate the downfall of his empire? It's make or break time for Mackintosh Textiles…moreless
