Despite Stacey’s “complete and utter shock”, she was soon forced to face reality in the latest episode.
On Monday (January 2, 2023), Stacey spoke with a child protection officer and a social worker about the situation.
When Stacey is confronted with questions about the circumstances under which Lily (Lilia Turner) may have become sexually active, a horrified Stacey opens a criminal investigation because what happened to Lily is illegal. I learned that it is.
In addition, protection issues surrounding Lily’s living environment have arisen, raising concerns about the men with whom Lily lives and who she has contact with.
Stacey affirmed that she trusted every adult man in Lily’s life and had no idea Lily had a boyfriend her age or at school.
The gravity of the situation weighed heavily on Stacey, and when her daughter woke up, she was forced to face Lily.
It is revealed that Lily was completely unaware of her medical condition, and Stacey had to break the news to her.
Lily was horrified by the news, so Stacy told her it was fine and made it clear that she needed to find out how this happened.
When Stacey revealed that Lily needed to be interrogated further, the girl burst into tears because she wanted to be with her family.
Despite being pressed for an answer as to who Lily had sex with, Stacey is denied an answer by her upset daughter.
Meanwhile, Stacey’s mother Jean Slater (Gillian Wright) was unaware of the situation as Stacey’s ex-husband and Lily’s adoptive father Martin Fowler (James Bye) questioned what was going on.
However, Stacey does not tell Martin right away.
“Stacey is stepping on eggshells,” commented actress Lacey Turner. There is. It’s a secret.
“That’s why she doesn’t confide in Martin because she’s just trying to get information and build trust, and she’s trying to break it.”
Will Stacy be able to find the answers she seeks from Lily?
