With Father Clifford away in England tending to his sick mother, Assumpta returns to Ballykissangel without her husband Joe and admitting that her marriage is over. Padraig is just a bit surprised when his wife Fionnuala returns to the village. She has a favor to ask of him and he's happy to oblige but the bitterness of their separation rises to the surface. It also turns out he wasn't entirely honest about her departure with their son Kevin which causes some difficulty for him. Siobhan has her first sonogram and Brendan starts to get used to the idea of fatherhood. Brian Quigley meanwhile has gone into partnership with someone and opened a paintball camp. The only problem is his new partner has sent his son as assistant manager. Even the locals in the pub take a dislike to him and decide to do something about it. Written by garykmcd
