A showdown took place between feisty Ger Lynch and Detective Steve Yates on last night's Fair City after Ger made allegations against Carrigstown's resident garda.
It came as Det Yates gets closer to rattling the seemingly unshakeable Ger.
Last night saw her hold her nerve when asked about her dealings with the McMorrows and the Dolus Eco Cleaning company.
The bad blood between the pair has been bubbling in recent weeks, and last week saw Det Yates hold his own investigation into Ger and her shady money lending business.
On Tuesday night, viewers were left thinking Ger was on thin ice after she threatened to "smash his pathetic career into the ground".
Caught in the middle, Ger's daughter Hayley admitted to her ex, Det Yates, that she knew what he was up to and that her mother knew too.
In last night's Fair City, Ger made allegations against Det Yates to Det McCabe.
When Det Yates told Ger her accounts were frozen, Hayley began to worry for his safety after her mother vowed to put a stop to him.
In a bid to try to warn her ex-boyfriend Steve, Hayley left a concerned voice message for Det Yates.
Ger then made a visit to the garda station and made an accusation against the detective.
As Ger was convinced that she had planted a seed of doubt in the mind of Det McCabe about Det Yates, she failed to mention it to Hayley, who was still torn between the two, warning Steve not to push Ger.
"You push her too far, you'll regret it," Hayley said.
Det Yates then finally found out about Ger's accusation and confronted her in a showdown in the Hungry Pig, telling her she will not get away with it
"You tried to take me down, so it's fair game," he warned.
Hayley, who was hurt after showing loyalty to her mother, accused her of being "the crooked one" and told her she is ashamed to have her as her mother.
