When Leanne lends him her support, will he soften?
As the funeral cars pull up on the street, Sam slips his hand into Nick’s who squeezes it tightly and Audrey, David and Shona all watch, heartbroken.
With the funeral over, the mourners gather in the bistro to say farewell to Natasha and Sam silently hands Nick a piece of paper on which he’s written a eulogy to his Mum.
As Nick reads out Sam’s eulogy, he struggles to contain his emotions.
Nick and Leanne agree it’s time to seek professional help for Sam and after a zoom appointment with Sam, Dr Gaddas confirms that she’s referring him to Mental Health Services for talking therapy.
Having been left to look after Sam, Simon does his best to persuade him out of his room, but without any success. Talking to Sam through the locked bedroom door, Leanne tells him she understands his pain, but as part of his family, she just wants to help.
Will Sam soften to Leanne?
