Killer Stephen

Stephen’s been playing a dangerous game since he murdered poor Leo Thompkins.

With his money troubles proving to be unsolvable, he’s been taking more and more risks to cover up his lies.

He even took a job as a delivery driver to raise some cash, but that went wrong when he crashed and ended up in hospital.

As Christmas dawns, Stephen’s busy wooing Elaine Jones, having discovered she’s selling her house. But Elaine’s son Tim is pretty convinced that Stephen doesn’t have genuine feelings for his mum.

And Tim’s not the only one questioning Stephen.

Ghost of Christmas present

Stephen calls at Gail’s house on Christmas Day, with a hip flask that David assumes is a birthday present.

Gail’s not impressed with the gift, thinking it’s a bit stingy from such a wealthy man as she believes Stephen to be.

And later, her suspicions grow when she sees Elaine buying Stephen a bottle of whisky to go with the hip flask she bought him.

Gail begins to wonder if Stephen’s regifted David’s birthday present.

Surely not?!

But when Elaine hands over the whisky, Gail announces that she needs to speak to Stephen.

It turns out, she’s had a chat with Stephen’s ex-wife Gabrielle, and she thinks her brother has some explaining to do!

What’s Gail uncovered? And could her life be in danger?

Is Gail lining herself up to be Stephen’s next victim?
