Owen’s out of jail and looking to make a fresh start in Walford
Owen returns to Walford this week. But what sort of reception will he receive from the locals?
The drama begins on Monday when Owen’s mum Liz turns up at Dot’s, where Patrick tries to lift her mood by asking her to dance with him.
It’s not long before Liz and Patrick are happily flirting as they perform a tango together.
The dancing leads to a drink at the Vic. But while Patrick’s at the bar, Liz gets a phone call and dashes off.
Liz’s destination is the Square, where Owen is waiting for her.
Owen reveals to Liz his fear of reverting to his bad old ways if he decides to settle in Walford.
Liz sneaks Owen back to Dot’s where she introduces him to Jim, who promptly offers him some decorating work.
Meanwhile, Patrick is livid to hear of Owen’s return and turns on Liz, who then gets into a row with her son.
By Friday, however, Patrick has calmed down and brings Libby round to see her dad.
The pair embrace warmly and then Owen thanks Patrick for his understanding.
Libby then begs Patrick to let Owen stay. But how will her mum, Denise, react if Owen is still around when she gets back from holiday? Watch the drama unfold from Monday 12th October.
