Waterloo Road

Confirmed for BBC One on 29 May at 8.00pm to 9.00pm

Ep 25/30

Wednesday 29 May



Steve-O continues his reign of terror over Connor and Kevin, forcing Dynasty into a shock decision; Christine contemplates moving on from Waterloo Road; and Lula makes an unlikely ally in the shape of new science teacher, Esther Fairclough.

Kevin and Dynasty’s joy at being alone together is short-lived when they discover Steve-O has broken into their flat. Back at school, Steve-O ups the ante on Connor when he defaults on his loan. Backed into a corner, Connor is forced to hand over his house keys and when Steve-O finds his secret marriage certificate, he knows he has bargaining power.

Freaked out by Steve-O’s behaviour, Dynasty tries to get Barry to intervene. But he’s uncharacteristically fearful and urges Dynasty to dump Kevin if she wants to protect him.

With Barry’s advice ringing in her ears, Dynasty calls an end to her relationship with Kevin. She tells Steve-O the news, hoping he’ll back off but he sees through her charade and tricks her into being alone with him – with terrifying consequences.

Elsewhere, Christine faces a tough interview panel for a position at Havelock High, but on her return to Waterloo Road is made an offer she can’t refuse by Michael.

Lula finds a kindred spirit in new science teacher Esther, bonding over their hatred of animal testing. But when Lula takes matters into her own hands, it appears this may be a dangerous alliance.

Audrey and Ndale announce their engagement but Sonya is in no mood to share their good news; and Maggie faces renewed hope as Grantly shows signs of waking from his coma.
