Episode two of Ackley Bridge bounded onto our screens on Wednesday night and it was another cracking episode. The scripts are intricate and current, the characters are all fascinating and you never know what they’re going to throw in the pot next. One thing’s for sure, that hour isn’t boring and the shocks, twists and turns keep on pounding. Here are a few highlights…
Nasreen ~ Nasreen has taken to wearing a hajib in a bid to shun Missy – her mum waves it off as nonsense and the feud between the pals doesn’t even last an entire episode. However, I wasn’t expecting Nasreen to come out as gay. What a fantastic storyline to tackle though, and I feel sure that this will be handled brilliantly.
Jordan’s the daddy ~ Jordan is on the run from ‘heavies’ and he is also being pursued by the mother of his child, or so we are led to believe. He is literally left holding the baby and it’s up to Steve to help him out. We also got a glimpse of Jordan’s relationship with his father, which is surely going to be a recurring plot.
Steve’s past ~ Just happening to have a child’s car seat in his car is not what I expected from Steve when he lent a hand to Jordan. A much better option than the holdall that Jordan has his baby secreted in and also much more legal than breaking into a car to steal one! So, we now know that Steve must have a child somewhere.
Missy’s on a mission ~ When Nana is reaching for her inhaler because £80 worth of bingo winnings has gone missing, Missy and Nasreen reunite to find Missy’s mum who is suspected of thieving the cash to find her habits. Heading straight to a dodgy set-up, they easily find the culprit and thanks to Nasreen’s quick thinking, have it away on their toes with a wallet.
Mandy & Sadiq ~ The rumours about Mandy and Sadiq were planted in episode one, but this episode sees the pair in a clinch! There may be trouble ahead…
