Kay Mellor’s done it again. In The Club, her latest compelling drama, has hooked the nation.
The series, which follows six expectant mothers and their partners, has been captivating week upon week, but now that In The Club is reaching its conclusion, there’s still so much left to be revealed.
We’re due a Vicky-centric episode this week, which will see the midwife suffering with excruciating stomach pains, but there’s still plenty of loose ends to be tied up with the other characters as well.
Here are six things that we need to find out as drama comes to an end:
1. Will Chris propose to Vicky?
Vicky’s been not-so-subtly dropping hints to Chris that she wants to get married, but he’s made his feelings clear and, at the moment, it looks like Vicky’s going to raise her baby alone. However, as the midwife starts to have unexpected pains will Chris accept some responsibility for the child and finally propose?
2. Will Kim choose Susie or Neil?
Since getting pregnant Kim has struggled with her feelings for friend and sperm-donor Neil, much to the annoyance of her partner Susie. After Neil assisted Kim during the birth of their child she moved into his flat, but then returned to Susie at the end of last week’s episode. Things are likely to be tense as Kim continues to have conflicting feelings, but who will she choose as the series ends?
3. Will Rick go to prison?
Rick’s still not found out his sentence for robbing a bank and, as his court case looms, he’ll finally discover whether he’s being sent to prison or not. With new-born twins, two other children and their finances in a dire situation, Diane’s hoping that her husband will get a suspended sentence, but will he be that lucky?
4. Does Simon’s dad have feelings for Rosanna?
Now that Rosanna and Simon are living with his parents things have been tense to say the least. Since playing the role of Rosanna’s birthing partner Simon’s mother has been more than happy to stick her oar in but, more intriguingly, as Rosanna met Simon’s dad the pair shared a knowing look. Do they have a history together? If not, sparks were definitely present during their introduction.
5. Has Jasmin got her confidence back?
It’s fair to say that, of all of the expectant mothers attending Parent Craft, Jasmin was the most apprehensive. After last week’s paternity scandal is she feeling better about motherhood? And will her relationship with Dev remain strong following their emotional heart-to-heart?
6. Will Kim continue to support Rosie?
As Kim decided to return to Susie she left Rosie staying with Neil and Jude, but will Rosie cope without her biggest supporter so far? And how will Neil manage with his son, Rosie and his granddaughter staying under his roof? If Susie decides to support Jude and Rosie, Kim could remain an active role model for the young mother – she certainly needs one now that her father isn’t fit to care for her.
