Storyline

Both Olive and Frank are saddened when they receive a call from Christopher, now living in California, to say that he and Suzanne are getting a divorce. He also makes it clear that he won't be coming home anytime soon. The need for an urgent trip to bathroom find Olive stopping in at the local hospital to use their facilities but leads to something far more serious when two gun-toting addicts arrive looking for drugs. It leads to Olive and Henry having a major argument, blaming each other for Christopher having left home. She also reveals that she was once going to leave him. Christopher suggests they have counseling after their ordeal but Olive won't hear of it. After Henry suffers a stroke some months later, he is in home care. Christopher tells his mother just what he thinks of his childhood. Written by garykmcd
