Review :-

In a blazing rage, Andy guns for revenge with devastating results in Robert and Katie's caravan of love.

Pearl stakes Len's love as she goes head-to-head with Rodney over the poker table.

Terry and Dawn struggle to reach a compromise over TJ.

Katie (Sammy Winward) worries about Andy’s (Kelvin Fletcher) behaviour the previous day and warns Robert (Karl Davies) about his threat. Meanwhile Cain (Jeff Hordley) winds Andy up about Robert, leading him to pull out a gun and determined to end the bitter feud with his brother once and for all.

Andy waits at Robert and Katie’s caravan for his victim to return. Meanwhile Daz (Luke Tittensor) tracks Katie and Robert down in a blind panic, informing them that Andy is on the warpath for Robert.

Back at the caravan Andy hears a noise outside and holds up his gun in anticipation of Robert. Unaware that it is actually Jack (Clive Hornby) approaching, Andy pulls the trigger. As Jack slumps to the floor and lies lifeless on the grass, a shocked Andy appears to be in a trance, when Robert and Katie arrive on the scene.

The police tell Robert and Katie to put their hands on their head

As the police and ambulance turn up, Katie quickly tells Robert they must cover for Andy, concocting a story before the police arrest both brothers. Has Andy just killed his father?

The police try to get Robert to leae his father's side.

Robert finds himself on the end of a police gun as he fights being arrested as he wants to say by his Dad.

Oblivious to the commotion, a few of the locals gather for a game of poker. As Pearl (Meg Johnson) continually loses, she becomes obsessed with winning her money back and eventually bets her engagement ring. Luckily she wins the hand but Len (Peter Martin) is furious and storms out.

Elsewhere a meeting over TJ (Connor Lee) becomes heated as Dawn (Julia Mallam) insists on taking him to Spain, upsetting Terry (Billy Hartman) who is adamant that his son stay in the UK. Realising they face a battle in court, Terry and Dawn eventually agree to trust each other and set about reaching a compromise.

ITV.COM The Devil's Advocate Tuesday 18.05.04
Still angry and upset after seeing Katie Andy drowns his sorrows in the Woolpack. His predicament is not helped when Cain decides to play devil’s advocate and winds Andy up about Robert. Cain convinces that Andy Robert has treated him like a mug. Andy storms out of the pub and fetches his shotgun. Daz tries to stop him leaving but Andy pushes him aside and heads for Robert’s caravan, where he waits for his brother to return with the gun loaded.
Meanwhile at lunch with Robert Jack says he has an old gas heater they can borrow for the caravan and tells Robert he will drop it round later. Frantic Daz goes round to see Jack but finding him out he tracks down Robert and Katie and tells them that Andy’s gone after Robert with a gun. Robert realises that Jack may have gone to the caravan and they tear round there in his car but arrive too late and find Jack lying on the ground covered in blood with Andy standing there with the smoking gun.
As Katie speaks to the ambulance crew on her mobile blood drips from Jack’s mouth and armed police arrive in place of the ambulance they were expecting. Robert is frantic as he attempts to stop the blood pouring from Jack’s chest and refuses to leave his dad’s side. Andy is a daze and only puts the gun down when the police give him a final warning. Katie tells Robert that he must tell the police the shooting was an accident.
At the police station Robert and Andy are interrogated separately and both stick to their story although the police have already worked out why Andy shot Jack and who he meant to kill. As Jack remains in intensive care the detective interviewing Andy tells him that if Jack dies he will be charged with murder.
Terry and Dawn’s meeting with the mediator ends in acrimonious deadlock, as the couple cannot agree on the slightest thing. Unable to find a compromise the mediator says that they are left with option other than to settle their differences in court. Terry later has a change of heart and tells Dawn he’s prepared to let her take TJ to Spain. In response Dawn agrees to let Terry see more of his son.
Rodney’s poker night arrives and having got an advance on her wages from Nicola Pearl is determined to make the most of it. As the evening wears on Rodney raises the stakes until it is only Pearl and himself left in. Len is upset when Pearl runs out of cash and decides to use her engagement ring as collateral. Fortunately for Pearl Rodney is bluffing and Pearl walks away with the pot. Left alone with Val Rodney says he’s ready for bed but as he collects her coat the former lovers kiss.
