Mick Carter and Linda Carter are finally back in their rightful place behind the bar in the Queen Victoria pub!

As they settle back into running the family boozer, however, Stuart Highway and Rainie Highway are feeling a bit suspicious…

The couple can’t work out how the Carters managed to get their hands on the Vic from Sharon Watts. But as Stuart attempts to get some answers, they are interrupted by a visit from police officer DI Pine.

Pine takes Mick aside and reveals that his abuser Katy Lewis has been arrested. Now they’ve charged her, the police will start appealing for more of her victims. 

Mick is alarmed at the news, worried that if there’s an appeal then people might realise what happened to him.

When Katy and Mick’s daughter Frankie Lewis turns up in the pub to confront Mick about the arrest, Stuart secretly listens in. 

Frankie is horrified that everyone will find out that her mum was a child abuser. 

Appalled by what’s happened to Mick, Stuart vows to get revenge for his friend. He calls his policeman brother Callum Highway and asks him how he can get hold of Frankie. What is he up to?

Stacey Slater is nervously waiting for some advice from her solicitor over her upcoming court case. When her brief calls, it’s bad news.
