This week in Shieldinch… Bob’s and Kim’s happiness is threatened by Theresa’s return; Frankie’s recovery is rocked by a blast from her past; and Lenny makes a surprising decision about his future.
Wrongly assuming Bob’s gone off the idea of proposing, Kim quizzes Angus and discovers Bob’s cold feet is due to a curse. Determined to quash his irrational fears, Kim takes matters into her own hands and plans to pop the question herself.
With a little help from Lou and Angus, Kim sets about planning a movie themed proposal in the Tall Ship but trouble comes calling when Theresa returns.
Theresa dupes Bob into meeting her and begs for forgiveness but he’s having none of it. More united than ever, Bob and Kim realise how much they love one another and a joint proposal follows. However, their happiness is short-lived thanks to Theresa’s actions.
