This week in Shieldinch…Lou and Lenny play a dangerous game as they clash over Amber; Father’s Day stirs up unhappy emotions for Caitlin and Ellie; and Poppy and Scarlett clash as they battle for Dougie’s attention.

Lenny’s unnerved by Amber and Lou’s blossoming relationship, keen to keep the policewoman away from his family.

Lou grows suspicious of Lenny after an innocent comment made by Charlotte about losing Lydia’s wedding ring, much to Lenny’s obvious horror. Realising the missing ring could crack Lydia’s murder case, Lou begins her own investigation which motivates Lenny to stop her meddling – for good.

When Joe abandons Lou mid-shift to spend time alone with Ruby, Lou inadvertently walks into a deadly trap Lenny’s set for her.

Elsewhere, Caitlin finds Father’s Day hard to handle with it stirring up unhappy memories of her childhood. In contrast, Ellie wants to mark the day spending time with her sister but is put out when Caitlin puts obstacles in her way. With the siblings at loggerheads, it takes wise words from mum Maggie to make them see sense.

Poppy’s excited to have her dad, Dougie, all to herself on Father’s Day for the first time in years. However, bridezilla Scarlett has other ideas and demands Dougie spends the day doing wedding planning with her.
