Women are the centre of all Minty and Garry’s problems this week – starting when Minty insults Heather about her appearance, claiming she isn’t a “real woman”. Then Garry gets it all wrong by thinking Dawn has finally fallen for his charms – when all she wanted was a good friend. His attempts at proposing to her fall flat and he can’t take the rejection – so ends up disappearing. When the police call for Minty with some news they have found the car Garry was driving by some cliffs, should her and Dawn be worried?
Bianca still hasn’t plucked up the courage to tell Ricky that he could be Tiffany’s father and so she goes to great lengths to explain the situation – firstly by writing down what she wants to say to him on some notepaper. They go for a meal but she can’t get the words out and they have a row – ending up with Ricky finding the notes on the back of a picture Tiffany has made for him.
But things aren’t that straightforward. While he might love to be Tiffany’s dad, he is aware that she is the only “real” family that Whitney has and she could be devastated to find out even that has gone. His thoughts are underlined when she goes out with one of the new employees from the car lot – Todd – and it all fails because of her past. When Ricky goes to rescue her from a drunken night’s sleep in a local doorway, she tries to make a pass at him and he has to point out that he isn’t Tony. What will he and Bianca do?
