How far will Liam go to avoid school?
FOR WEEK COMMENCING 12TH FEBRUARY
As Liam returns to school Mason continues to mock him and whenGary reveals that it’s his fault Liam punched Dylan as he urged him to stand up for himself, George's heart sinks to realise his instincts were right and Liam is the victim.
When Mason finds Liam working on his marionette, he grabs it off him and smashes it to smithereens while Dylan films his tears.
After Liam announces to Maria that he's not going to school anymore, Gary and Maria see Mrs Crawshaw and explain how Liam’s refusing to go to school because he’s being bullied by Mason and Dylan, only to be told that unless they have proof, there’s nothing she can do.
As Eileen urges her to check Liam’s socials as she’ll likely find the evidence she needs there, Maria creates a fake SendPx account and sends Liam a follow request.
As she scrolls through the comments on Liam’s account, Maria's face becomes ashen and Gary and Maria tell Liam that the only option left is for him to change schools.
Later, in his bedroom, Liam googles ways to kill himself. Remembering Liam’s earlier words, a horrified Maria rushes back to the flat in a desperate bid to find Liam.
