Dead Man Walking

Eva asks Leanne why are you hereHe’s a dead man walking. So said Leanne about Aiden on Thursday after seeing him with Maria outside the spa. Ok, let’s see the Battersby girls take him down.

I know, technically, Eva is not a Battersby but I think she is one in spirit. We need Toyah to reappear so she can get in on this too. He doesn’t stand a chance, and neither does Maria. I am looking forward to it.

Eva shakes her head in confusionEva made a brilliant move in the guise of girlie friends and bridal chat. Aiden gave her a day at a spa for herself and a friend. He wanted to get her out of the way so he could spend time with Maria and, by the way, tell her that Eva was pregnant. So Eva goes to the salon and asks her bestie to join her. Maria had no choice. So off they drove for a day of pampering.

Aiden came out on the street just in time to see Maria’s VW bug pulling away, with Eva in the passenger seat. David was happy to fill him in: “Your mistress is about to tell your girlfriend how you can’t leanne looks out window at where aiden had been with mariakeep it in your pants.”

And, indeed, over a glass of wine at the spa restaurant, Maria was just about to do that. But when she told Eva she needed to tell her something, Eva said she also had news. And then both of them were preempted by Aiden coming in with some lame story about thinking she’d brought Sean for her girlie day.

Eva recovered faster than Maria did, so got out her “news” first: that she was pregnant. If Eva hadn’t known about Maria and Aiden make him wish he had not been born - dead man walkingalready, their faces would have told her. Aiden looked like he wanted the floor to swallow him up, and Maria looked horrified and angry. Neither are the reaction you’d expect. Eva didn’t miss a beat; happy happy ‘we’re thrilled, aren’t we babe’.

So out the door goes Maria. And Aiden after her. That’s when Leanne arrived, just in time to see a very emotionally-fraught eva looks resolute in plandiscussion between the two of them. She had come there to stop Eva playing her game of deception and revenge. But, after seeing Maria and Aiden, she’s in. “The two of us are gonna make him wish he’d never been born.”
