Episode 2039
AIRED:
Chrissy finally gets the opportunity to interrogate her mother about locking her in the shed but she doesn't get the answer she wants - Jackie denies it! She tells Chrissy that she did shout at her and she was probably too harsh but she would never do such an awful thing as lock her daughter in the shed! Angered by her mother's denial of an event that she clearly remembers, Chrissy continues to push and both mother and daughter wind each other up until Chrissy asks the inevitable: "did you love me more than you loved Helen?" In the heat of the moment Jackie responds: "Yes!" Chrissy rushes out of the room in tears and locks herself in the kitchen. Through the door she tells Jackie to get out! Later, thinking her mother has gone, Chrissy emerges only to find Jackie still sitting in the front room. Jackie apologizes but tries to explain things to Chrissy. She tells her that Helen needed her - she was ill and finally gives Chrissy the reason for her hasty departure: she, like Chrissy, had a breakdown. She tells of how she wandered around from job to job and how she would drink in the evenings to try and forget. A few of the facts echo Chrissy's own actions in her lies about Chloe's illness last year . . . Jackie decides that it would be best if she went. Before she goes she apologizes to Chrissy for everything . . . later, Gary returns home having taken Chloe to the cinema. Chloe asks if grandma will be coming to visit again soon, Chrissy tells her "probably not". Tanya and Babs return home after Sean's funeral. Tanya says she's glad to be back but she's not sure what her next move should be. She tells Babs that she has to stay in the area until her hearing at least but after that she might leave . . . Babs offers to stay and help out with money and Harry until Tanya feels up to it again. Tanya thanks her mother and says she'd like that. Having been left alone in the cafe, Jake and Lucy start talking like they used to. They both seem to realize that there's something still between them . . . they have a brief moment but are interrupted by burning omelets! Geri finally returns home! She tells Yasmin that she's so pleased to be out of hospital. Later, a dampener is put on things when Geri hears about Suzie from Cat over the phone. Yasmin tells her that she didn't want to upset her. Also, Geri finds out that Yas is taking part in a speed-dating session in The Swan tomorrow night. At first she thinks she's joking and ashamed to tell her the truth, Yas tells her that she's just a plant so that the desperate young boys will think they have a chance with a really hot girl! Meanwhile, Mel prepares for the speed-dating. She wants to get it right! At the hospital, Kelly puts on a brave face for Justin and insists that he not blame himself but later she breaks down in front of Denise. Denise gets the impression that Kelly does blame Justin a little but Kelly insists that she doesn't, if anything it seems, she blames herself. She worries that her college work load is responsible but Denise reassures Kelly that if there's anything she's learned in the past few weeks its that there's no point talking with ifs, buts and maybes. What's happened has happened and she's just got to get on with things. Later, Denise confesses to Les that it felt nice to be the shoulder to cry on for a change. Meanwhile, Justin and Kelly get the worrying news that although Suzie's operation went well there's a possibility she could suffer brain damage! Doctor John tells them that the next 24 hours are crucial . . .moreless
