Episode Summary

EDIT
The Hand That Rocks The Cradle
AIRED:
Harchester take to the field for the biggest game of their careers with a place in the semi-final of the Champions League at stake. With Frank hiding away in the physio room, Jodie receives treatment for her stomach pains until the ambulance arrives to take her to the Hospital. Dean finds Frank and offers to drive him to the hospital to be with his wife. Don, giving commentary on Harchester's game with Arsenal, receives a message that Jodie has been rushed to Harchester General and takes off immediately. On his way, he bumps into Gina who tells him that Jodie knows it was Don that got the papers involved bringing down Frank. Meanwhile out on the field, Harchester are holding their own against one of the Premiership's finest and things only get better when Lee Presley scores just before half time to give Harchester a priceless lead and leveling the game on aggregate. The man of the match so far is Danny Sulivan, who is playing the game of his life, and so he is shocked to hear Viv wants to take him off at half time in order to bring on Frank to tighten things up at the back. When Viv hears Frank has gone to the Hospital, he has no other choice but to tell the lads that it's the same again for the 2nd half. Don arrives at the Hospital and is told that his daughter has had a miscarriage. He heads immediately for Jodie’s room, only to find Frank with her already and when he tries to console her, Jodie rejects him and tells him to stay out of her life, leaving Don heart broken. We're deep into stoppage time and Harchester look to be taking this tie into extra time . . . That is until Freddie Ljunberg equalises on the night and gives Arsenal a vital away goal and a 2-1 lead on aggregate. The referee blows the final whistle and Harchester's Champions League campaign comes to an end. The players are dejected but the fans stay behind to show their appreciation for their efforts. One week on, the players are still blaming each other for the goal they let in against Arsenal but Viv tells them to forget about it and focus on promotion back to the Premiership. The remaining fixtures have just been announced and Harchester face West Ham on the final day of the season and he doesn't want to go into that game needing a win, especially now that Don Barker is director of football there. Harchester are currently sitting 8th in the Championship and play host to Nottingham Forrest in the next few hours. Frank is about to leave for the game but tells Jodie, who has been released from Hospital he would rather stay home and take care of her. Jodie tells him that she has to go for a check up at the Doctors and the team need Frank and tells him to go, she says she is fine - but is she really? Jodie is patiently waiting at the Doctor's but gets fed up waiting around and heads to the Lair, where Harchester are 1-0 up thanks to Frank. Danny Sullivan's wife is a spectator at the game complete with their twin babies. As one baby needs changing, Sully's wife can't take them both into the toilet's and so leaves baby Jack outside. Jodie walks past and spots the child and in a moment of madness, with no one around, she takes the baby and heads out of the ground, dodging security. Harchester return to the changing room at Full Time having conceded a soft penalty to draw the game 1-1. Sully hears his wife outside sounding distressed and asks her what's wrong. She tells him that someone has taken their baby boy and Sully is furious with his wife that she would leave him outside alone but the rest of the lads tell him to take it easy and they start searching for baby Jack. Meanwhile back at home, Jodie has returned with Jack and is treating him as if he were hers. She's bought him clothes and toys and even starts to think about his first day at school. Frank returns home and is shocked to find a baby in the bedroom. He demands to know whose baby it is and Jodie keeps telling him that he is theirs. The police come round and Frank answers the door. The police explain to Frank that one of Sully's babies have gone missing and ask if he has noticed anything. It trigger's that the baby upstairs is Sully's kid but Frank says he hasn't seen anything in order to cover for his wife. The lad's are searching at the nearby park and Frank joins the search, still holding the truth from Sully. They are alarmed when Lee comes across a blanket but Sully says it doesn't belong to Jack. It then register's with Sully that it looks as if they are looking for a body, but the lads tell him that it's not true and they will find him. Gina goes round to see how Jodie is but she turns her away, saying she is fine. On her way out, Gina sees a baby blanket in Jodie's car and suspects that Jack is with her. She doesn't know what to do so phones Fletch, who says he'll sort it. He corner's Frank and announces in front of everybody that Jack is at home with Jodie and that Frank has known all along. Sully goes for Frank but the lads restrain him. Frank pleads his innocence, saying he was just trying to protect his wife. The lads head off for Jodie's place and leave Frank in the park. Frank pleads with Curtis to give him a lift home to protect Jodie and Curtis reluctantly agrees. Everyone arrives and storm into the house, with Frank still being restrained by some of the lads. Sully pleads with Jodie to hand over his son but she really believes that he is hers. As Sully is pleading with her, Lee and Hammo sneak behind her and grab Jack from her. Jodie screams for “her” baby and Frank runs into the house to console his wife. Sully tells them both never to come near him or his family again and tells Viv that he wants Frank out of Harchester. Viv and Dean walk out and Viv tells Dean that there is no way he can play Frank again after this as none of the lads will work with him. Dean tells him that they will eventually come around and all they need is time. But time is not something Viv or Harchester United Football Club have at the moment....moreless
