Barry and Annette encounter Heather and Brendan in the Bistro tonight (never good to run into her when she's hungry). Still smarting from further humiliation at the hands of McAleer, Barry tries to rattle Heather by threatening to print his story about her and Floyd ("Oooooh banged your brother did we!? How about I tell EVERYONE"). Annette is disgusted by this and sick of Barry upsetting their neighbours in Carrigstown. She lets rip at him and tells him she's sick of his cheap, gutter tactics tearing apart people's lives. She accuses him of being driven by bitter, paranoid obsession rather than a desire to do a good job. You go girl; although, in fairness he's writing for the Northside f**king Post not the News of the World, so chill out.
