Antonia Prebble & John Leigh on "Outrageous Fortune" (2008)

Antonia Prebble's (Clare, Mystic Force) "Outrageous Fortune" character Loretta West takes center stage in the fifth episode of Season 4 titled "Remorseless, Treacherous, Lecherous." The West family is stunned by Loretta's surprise make-over which has everyone reminding them of her grandmother. Loretta doesn't reveal the reason behind her new look has to do with romancing her grandmother's former lover in order to further her latest money-making scheme. Loretta is at odds with her father over money and when he comes to her video store and takes her inventory, she strikes back by planning to burn the place down for the insurance money. She employs the family's firebug Sparky to do the job. John Leigh (Brownbeard, Overdrive) portrays Sparky, who has turned over a new leaf, leaving his drug habit behind. He is in the process of helping Loretta's dad with repairs to his new house when Loretta tempts him back to his drug habit and gets him to agree to the job. But when he arrives at the West house in the middle of the night, he reveals his fire caused the pet shop next door to also catch fire, killing all of the animals inside. This is Antonia Prebble's ninth post from "Outrageous Fortune" and John Leigh's second from the series.
