When Doug and Ste's financial troubles rear their ugly head again in the coming days, the return of Connie and Herb could present a solution as they offer the couple money on the condition that they'll agree to move to America.
Ste is pleased when Doug (PJ Brennan) seems opposed to the idea and throws his mum and dad out of the deli, but it soon becomes clear that Doug may actually be giving the suggestion some consideration.
Later, when Doug catches Herb trying to blackmail Ste (Kieron Richardson), it causes more tension between the Carters until Connie drops the bombshell that Herb has Parkinson's disease.
With the real reason that Connie and Herb want Doug home now out in the open, will this persuade Doug and Ste to leave the village?
