Hardy is jubilant when the Sandbrook case is officially reopened and, although Claire is evasive when Ellie puts her findings to her, he elicits a confession from her which derails her relationship with Lee Ashworth. Hardy and Ellie also track down Gary Thorp, obsessive boyfriend of one of the victims who now comes into the frame along with the Gillespies. Sharon recalls Ellie to the stand and again tries desperately to discredit her but Jocelyn counters by questioning why Joe was not chosen to give evidence. The jury retires to reach a verdict but just as they return Claire arrives at the court with something for Hardy.
