Review :-
Scott fears he is heading for a fall when the Dingles leave him hanging out to dry.
Dawn arranges a secret rendezvous, but will she be disappointed.
Debbie is thrilled to learn Charity has chances of an early release.

Zak, Cain and Sam bundle Scott into their van.

Scott is kidnapped by the Dingles.

Having given up her job and been lumbered with screaming TJ again, Dawn (Julia Mallam) is quickly bored, and her thoughts turn to Scott (Ben Freeman).

When he conveniently calls round to drop off her wages, the sexual tension between them is rife. Scott invites her to meet him later that afternoon and it’s clear they both have one thing in mind.

Later, an immaculate Dawn nervously goes to meet Scott but feels utterly humiliated and deflated when he fails to show.

Meanwhile, the Dingles’ revenge plans for Scott unwind as they ambush him in his car while he waits patiently for Dawn. He is quickly bundled into the back of a van with a sack over his head and screams out in terror.

After a long journey begging the Dingles to let him go, the van finally reaches its destination. Cain (Jeff Hordley) and Zak (Steve Halliwell) frog-march petrified Scott to a stone tower they have built on the cricket pitch. As they leave, they smugly inform him he is on a famous cliff edge popular with suicide jumpers. Horrified Scott is left swaying on the rock structure, thinking that he could plunge to his death at any moment.

Elsewhere in the village, Debbie (Charley Webb) is delighted to hear that Charity (Emma Atkins) may soon be released, as Zoe (Leah Bracknell) has agreed to change her testimony.

Little does she know the price her mother has had to pay to secure her freedom. How will she react when she finds out Charity has used Noah as a get out of jail free card?

Leaving Scott to spend the night thinking that one wrong move could see him plunge into the abyss the Dingles retire to the pub.
