WHO KILLED ROGER?
Battle lines are drawn in a bid to nail Roger Carlyle's killer
in this week's shocking episode of Sons and Daughters.
Virtually the entire cast came under suspicion when Roger (Les
Dayman) finally got his just desserts last week.
The mystery killer sneaked up behind dastardly Roger, gave
him a well-deserved wallop on the back of the head and left
him lying in a pool of blood.
His body, which mysteriously disappeared, is discovered this
week and police start investigations.
Roger's rotten past left him with a lot of enemies.
Nearly everyone had a motive for murder, and in the chaos following
the discovery of the body in a compost heap, accusing fingers
point in all directions.
Alison Carr (Belinda Giblin) is convinced that Caroline Morrell
(Abigail) murdered Roger.
After all, she was charmed by him and later discovered his
romantic advances were merely a ploy to help him get control
To add insult to injury, Caroline discovered a young woman
emerging from Roger's bedroom during a visit, and she never
takes rejection well.
But the police suspect Caroline because she was caught trying
to have a bloodstained rug cleaned.
Wayne and his father, Gordon (Brian Blain), also had good reasons
for wanting Roger dead.
Both of them hated him and were afraid that he'd take control
of their family company.
Samantha Morrell (Sally Tayler) had a pretty good motive for
Roger had threatened to have her closest friend and protector,
Leo Walsh (Bob Baines), committed to a psychiatric institution.
Then there's Leo, silently in love with Samantha and jealous
of Roger. He was terrified by Roger's threat to have him committed
and didn't like his interest in Samantha.
But it's unlucky Mary Reynolds (Tessa Humphries) whom the police
cart off to jail, and they think they have sound reasons for
If only they knew the truth...
Also in this week's show, Fiona Thompson's (Pat McDonald) refugee
friend, Nguyen Hung (Phu An Chiem) runs away, causing untold
His disappearance forces Fiona to go to the immigration department
and tell the full story, but she's worried that if Hung is found,
he will be tossed into a detention centre.
Only one person knows where Hung is hiding, and he's not telling
- not until there's a close call with death, anyway.
Meanwhile, troublemakers Tracey Kingsford (Anna Hruby) and
Judge (Rob Sampson) plot to get Brett Keegan (Brett Partridge)
into deep trouble by forcing him to break into a warehouse to
repay his gambling debt.
