Tensions continue to rise on Fair City this week as evil Heather fights for her life - and her family fight among themselves.
The troubled mother is in a grave condition in hospital after her dramatic jump from the second storey of a shopping centre in Thursday night's episode.
On last night's instalment of the show, things went from bad to worse for the Phelan family, as a worried Renee clashed with daughter Farrah. Renee is furious after Farrah informs the family in hospital that Heather was responsible for the drugging of daughter Ellie.
Heather had spent time in a mental hospital after this, but has since returned and Farrah has made no secret of the fact that she wants to separate young Ellie from her unstable mother. As Heather remains in a coma, relations between Renee and Farah completely disintegrate.
Meanwhile, one man who is hoping Heather won't make a recovery is creepy mechanic Ciaran Holloway, played by Johnny Ward. Ciaran is worried that if Heather does wake up, she will reveal his awful secret - he has been keeping Katy O'Brien captive since May.
When Ciaran informs Katy (both inset) of Heather's fall, the youngster is distraught as she had seen this as a potential way out of her situation.
While she and Ciaran have formed a friendship, Katy is desperate to leave the cell she has been trapped in.
