Phelan’s got several not-so-pleasant skeletons in his closet in the shape of blackmailing Anna into sex, letting Michael die and seemingly killing poor Fake Gavin AKA Andy.
More recently, he’s been getting Seb Franklin involved in his dodgy schemes, although now Seb’s connected to Nicola as she’s his caseworker, Phelan seems to be keeping things on the straight and narrow and actually just employing Seb as his apprentice.
When a DNA test confirms that Nicola is indeed his kid, Pat goes on a one-man mission to put right all the wrongs he’s ever made.
As we said, this could take some time.
Phelan actually visits a church confessional to own up to his wrong doings and surprises everyone when he admits he deserves to be punished for his sins.
Is this confession really enough to atone all the bad stuff he’s done over the years?
