The final episode of The Nest has left viewers breathless following a series of spectacular twists.
Drama lovers have been gripped by the complex story of surrogacy over the past month.
In Sunday night’s (April 12) penultimate episode, teenager Kaya decided to keep the baby she had carried for wealthy young couple Dan and Emily.
They had earlier discovered the wrong embryo had been implanted into Kaya, meaning they had no biological tie.
And as the carrier, Kaya had the right to be the tot’s guardian.
But Dan heartbreakingly revealed he felt he was the little girl’s daddy regardless.
In tonight’s episode (Monday, April 13), Kaya’s devious mum Siobhan manipulated her into speaking to the press to make out Dan and Emily had exploited her.
That way any hope of them getting custody through a court case would be difficult.
They lost everything – their last hope of a child, the business and that beautiful house!
But when Kaya’s real identity as Scotland’s most notorious child killer was exposed, she realised there was no way she could bring up a child. And she decided to give her tot to Dan and Emily.
It appeared that the three of them would move forward with a relationship and Kaya would play a part in the baby’s life, as the episode drew to a close.
In another sensational twist (April 13), viewers discovered that Kaya was not a cold-hearted murderer.
All along, viewers knew that she had spent time in a young offenders’ institute for killing a pregnant woman.

However, we finally learned that she had accidentally stabbed her pregnant aunt Neve as she tried to break up a fight between her and her mother.
Siobhan had gas lit her daughter all these years, refusing to take responsibility for causing the tragic death.
And there was one more twist – viewers thought Kaya had killed her ex, Doddy.
But it transpired her social worker James was behind his death!
Series 2 of The Nest?
The finale did not disappoint, with many viewers already begging for a follow-up series.
#TheNest was an outstanding watch. 10/10!
