A Trip To Galway

Sarah learns that her father is in Galway. She tries to convince Suze to find Jimmy, but she won’t help her. But Sarah has a plan. She helps Suze pay off her debt and promises to give her another €250. Using her stepfather’s ice cream van, Suze and Sarah set off immediately. On the way to Galway, Sarah begins to bleed, which worries Suze. Suze decides to take Sarah to the hospital, but Sarah refuses to go. Suddenly, Sarah realizes she’s losing consciousness, and the van stops working at the right time. Suze was about to hit a man, but luckily, she stopped the van in time. The man helps them and takes them to the mechanic’s house, but he’s dead. The mechanic’s family is holding a funeral, and the sisters feel bad barging in.

Suze gives Sarah her mobile phone, and while Suze is away, Sarah looks up the map to find the way to Galway. But Sarah learns that Suze has been lying to her because Jimmy has been trying to contact Suze all along.

Why Did Suze Lie? What Happened To The Sisters?

Suze apologizes to Sarah for not telling her. But Suze hasn’t had a good experience with her father. Jimmy isn’t a reliable person, and he has broken many promises since Suze was a child. But things don’t end well. While Sarah is trying to get her things, she drops Suze’s paint box. Suze had gotten the box from her father, and Sarah wanted to keep it.

Steve has tracked Sarah’s phone and planned a surprise for her. Nevertheless, he’s worried about her and decides to take Sarah back to Canada.

Suze waits for her mother to confess because she knows something is wrong. Sheryl tells her that Deryl was arrested for hitting her, and that she’s agreed to press charges. But the next morning, everything is different: she packs her things and leaves. Suze did nothing and allowed her to leave.

‘SisterS’ gives us an insight into the lives of two women who end up being sisters. Suze and Sarah’s lives are magically intertwined when they have to find their father, who turns out to be a pathetic man. Jimmy hasn’t changed, and Suze knows that he never will. Jimmy had nothing to do with his daughters. Besides, money was the only reason he even accepted Sarah. After meeting Sarah, Jimmy realized that he had a wealthy daughter. He decides to steal the ring, pretending to be a saint the whole time. When Suze was growing up, she experienced everything, but this incident broke her heart. For once, Sarah’s arrival becomes her greatest happiness. But now she has abandoned her too. Sarah and Suze are the only people who understand each other and know what they’re thinking about. Both have suffered due to their parents. Sarah didn’t have a father, and her mother never stopped belittling her. But for Suze, her father wasn’t a good person. Just like Deryl, Jimmy abused her and Sheryl too.

Moreover, Sheryl has committed a huge mistake choosing Jimmy over Suze, and now she’s doing the same with Deryl. The series shows that Sarah and Suze had commitment issues and didn’t trust anyone around them. Even though Steve and Gabriel are good to them. The girls wanted a different life and weren’t coping well with their relationship. But Suze and Sarah have to fight back. Sarah has to be around her somewhere. Even so, if the series comes back with a next season, it’ll reveal Suze’s decision. But the fact that the sisters need each other cannot be changed. If Sarah hadn’t come to Ireland, she wouldn’t have had a chance to meet her sister, the person who understands her the most. But now Suze has to make the biggest decision of her life: whether to find her sister or move on with her life. Who knows? This time, Suze might be the one going to Canada.
