Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode Five
AIRED:
Ruby washes Joy in the bath as Marcia prepares to leave for the court. Jeremy drives his kids to school and watches as they run off in their ragged clothes without an umbrella, knowing he wants more for his boys. He phones Mark and agrees to the proposition. At court, the Maher boys are involved in the protest. Len drops Rose off and she notices the baseball bat in the car but he brushes it off as nothing. An injured Johnnie arrives. Lewis gives his closing argument to a packed courtroom. Len is there also, and watches Johnnie. Lewis tells the jury that both sides agree about what happened, and Duvinder cannot contest the mountain of evidence against him. The witnesses are uncontested – eleven unaccounted for minutes are put down to Duvinder having a change of heart but is this so? He begs them to return a guilty vote.

Jeremy leaves the court and meets with Mark, handing over the deeds to the flat as security for the stock. He feels horrible, and contemplates taking it back. Charles meets with Father Gervase and tells him he will not be returning to the church. Gervase tells him to wait for a sign – he may feel uncertain, but that is common. He says that Charles is looking in the wrong place for a sign. Rose asks Johnnie what happened and he tells her someone bashed him with a baseball bat. She realizes it was Len. Cording's closing argument tells the jurors that they cannot guess and make inferences if they don't know what happened. He also reminds them about Haines and the police investigation. The Judge tells the jury that the evidence is all before them and they should try for a unanimous verdict. They are led to the jury room.

Eva begins by announcing she wants to run for foreperson. Warren does also. More people vote for Eva and so she begins. The exhibits are brought into the jury room. But right from the beginning there are arguments. Elsie wants to have some tea but Eva wants everyone to wait for a break until halfway through the three hours they have left. Charles stands up for Elsie and Eva wants to stand down from foreperson if no one will listen. Eventually, everyone decides to have a preliminary vote in case they all agree. Eva, Warren, Derek and Rose vote guilty. Jessica, Marcia and Johnnie vote not guilty. Johnnie and Rose are surprised at each other's votes. Hector, Peter, Elsie, Jeremy and Charles abstain from voting.

Eva asks the not guilty people why they vote as they did. Jessica believes Haines did it. Marcia discusses the race issue and Rose wonders why Haines' fingerprints were not on the sword. Rose and Johnnie are now arguing. Elsie is clearly not doing well. Later, everyone stops for a break and Charles tells them it was a bad idea to vote as no one is going to change their position. Eva tells Charles to be foreman if he is so good. She resigns from her position. They decide to elect a new person who can come up with a plan for order for the next day. Peter is elected by the others, without even asking to do it. The jurors agree to go home early and sleep on it.

Rose hurries out of the court and tells Johnnie she is married and she thinks Len hurt him. He is rather annoyed at this. She tells him she just wanted to escape, be able to breathe, and be someone other than herself. He runs off, confused. At home, she asks her husband if he bashed Johnnie and he tells her he couldn't sit back and let his marriage be ruined. Rose tells him nothing happened, but it happened in her mind. She is tired of living with this possessive man and tells him she doesn't know if she can live with him any longer. Johnnie, angry, arrives at a pub and ends up passing out drunk in his apartment.

Charles is staying at Elsie's. She tells him she wants him to give her his last rights. Charles realizes she is his sign – that he should become a priest. He tells her he will stay with her for the rest of her days. Peter is busy going over maps and looking up information about Sikhs when Michael arrives at the house. Marion refuses to let him in, even though he claims it is important. He tells her that he has found important evidence. Marion tells him that she is sick of him always trying to be the centre of attention in the family. She tells him to leave and he does so.

At a pub, Ron Maher tells his sons that he wants vengeance just as badly, and if Duvinder is found innocent they will kill him.moreless
