Episode Summary

EDIT
Trudy's Story
AIRED:
Trudy, Mack's secretary, has spent her whole life looking after other people: her father, Mack, the employees at the factory. So busy has she been sorting out other people's problems that her own life has been on hold. And then her father dies - and suddenly Trudy doesn't have a role to play. In the midst of her bereavement, she is suddenly facing the hardest question in the world - what I am going to do with the rest of my life? What do people tell you when you're bereaved - don't make any quick decisions that you might regret. But Trudy is not listening, she needs to make a change in her life. Actually, what she decides is to make two major changes. She takes three weeks off work and checks herself into a private clinic to have her breasts enlarged. Anyone would tell her that this is the worst time in the world to have cosmetic surgery. But Trudy has not told anyone. Not a soul. The trauma of surgery leads Trudy to face the pain of her bereavement and the senselessness of her life. Drugged, upset and lost, Trudy makes a mistake. She tells Mack that his wife is having affairs with workers at the factory. And this makes it even more difficult for him to him to ignore it. Suddenly the only stable part of her shattered life - her friendship with Mack and her job at the factory - is under threat. With the truth about Mack's marriage uncovered, everyone is forced to face their feelings. Trudy's for Mack, Mack's for Katherine. One thing is for sure, life at the factory is never going to be the same again.moreless
