Lucy Mallon

    With the Katy/Ciaran story more or less over and done with in Fair City, where could things go from there and what would be a good way to replace it? I was thinking I'd like to see the return of Lucy Mallon, the mad and obsessive Longford woman who wanted to take over Dolores' life. There were some loose ends left over from this storyline and it would be good to see her again in it perhaps involved in a new situation.

    Let's say the new story starts off from small things. Rose decides to take a trip to Leitrim to visit her brother (who is dead). In Carrick on Shannon, she meets her brother's only child Lucy who now works in a hotel there and has been since her recovery from her mental illness in 2013. Rose accompanies Lucy to her house in the neighbouring village of Dromod on the Longford/Leitrim border. Lucy is delighted to see Rose who she has not met for 2 years. Rose rambles on about things and mentions her brother and Lucy's mother as if they are alive and Rose also starts forgetting other things. Lucy becomes upset and concerned and arranges to contact Rose's son and her cousin Eoghan. Lucy then arranges a train ticket for them both and leave Dromod station for Connolly station, phoning Eoghan to pick them up at the station. Lucy is apprehensive about visiting Carraigstown again but she feels she has to and has heard all about her cousin Katy. Lucy seems to be the only person Katy can identify with and Lucy has to stay on in Dublin. Lucy is horrified when she discovers that her ex boyfriend Ciaran was Katy's captor. Lucy also has become obsessed with religion since last time and spends a lot of her time going to masses.

    Of course, she then wants to meet Dolores and Wayne. They resist but eventually accept her back into their lives. Wayne now works for Cathal Spillane and it is dodgy and is causing friction with Orla. Lucy is the only person he can talk to and confide in. Dolores falls for Lucy's charms and helps her find work. She ends up working for a company owned by Cathal who now controls 90% of the businesses. Little by little, signs of the old Lucy come back.

    She is always phoning and texting Wayne who meets with her regularly but has not shown any interest in her romantically until one evening he discovers he still has feelings for her. He rejects her eventually and says he cannot do this as he s with Orla now.

    From there, things go from bad to worse. Lucy starts playing mindgames with Wayne and deliberately starts one night stands with any man she can find, many from the homeless shelter place. As she spends more and more time there, Wayne becomes jealous and he looses it making her more determined than ever. As Wayne falls deeper in love, Lucy plays more and more mindgames and decides to flirt with her and his boss, Cathal. When Wayne catches them out, he gets into a lot of trouble as Cathal's goons beat him up. Lucy then plans on seeking revenge against Cathal and also on destroying Orla's character in Wayne's eyes. As Wayne recovers from his injury, he grows more and more dependent on Lucy who plans to also destroy Pete and try and set Pete and Cathal against each other when Pete takes on a job for one of Cathal's associates and money goes missing (that Lucy has borrowed). From there, it is wide open what can happen next.
