Linda is determined to see Mick named as the baby’s legal father when the birth certificate is signed, but Rainie has other plans. She ends up posting flyers all over the neighbourhood stating that Max is the dad – a move that leads to Mick threatening her before taking matters into his own hands.

By Tuesday, Rainie and Stuart will have been left shocked by a false accusation – with Stu ending up issuing a stern warning to Mick for trying to jeopardise his family.
