Linda Carter almost ruined her own plans to get a confession from Stuart Highway, when she ran out on him after the pair kissed in a pretty vile moment.
But in tonight’s episode, she turns into a master manipulator to try and weasle her way back into his good books, in the hope she will convince him to confess to his misdeeds in shooting himself to frame Mick.
First, Stuart tells her it’s time to put some distance between them, as he respects Mick too much to betray him with his missus (yeah, right.)
Linda, in fear her plan may have been thwarted, gets hiim to agree to continue helping her around the pub, showing off her manipulation skills.
Later, after a busy day at the Queen Vic, Linda suggests she and Stuart should have a night-cap – but will she let it go even further than the kiss from the night before?
