Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode Four
AIRED:
Duvinder readies himself for the trial as a prison officer tells him how bad his day will be. Charles wakes in his hotel room and turns down the photo of Isobel. Jeremy watches a video from happier times, and knows he wants that life back. Marcia wakes in her old bedroom. She is surprised at how well her mother is looking after herself, but is not willing to be friendly. Rose is dropped off at court, but tells Len she can't meet him for lunch. Eddie and Johnnie run in the park. Eddie says that Johnnie should not have a relationship for a year, because he needs to stay sober and often people become obsessed with women during the disorienting, bewildering time after sobering up. Johnnie tells Eddie he is in love with Rose, Eddie tells him to leave it alone. As the jurors arrive at court, Peter and Marion pull up. Marion wants him to tell the Judge about the assault, but Peter does not want to cause a mistrial. Seeing how invigorated he is, Marion tells him that it doesn't matter. Lewis begins his cross-examination, starting off as harsh as he can. He quickly ascertains that Duvinder wanted to kill Maher, is sword-proficient and that Sikhs are a violent religion. Neither Cording nor Duvinder can do much to convince the jurors otherwise. What surprises them is when Duvinder confesses he seriously wounded a competitor in a sword-fighting competition who bullied others. As the court breaks for lunch, Cording meets outside with Shah. He tells Shah that the only way for Duvinder to win is if Maria de Silva testifies about her attack on the heath. Ron Maher tells his sons that Duvinder will certainly be found guilty now and they need not bother the jurors. The sons tell him they will do nothing, but will wait until Duvinder is in prison. Johnnie and Rose meet for lunch. Johnnie tells Rose what Eddie thinks about their relationship, and they both agree that Eddie is right. Rose tells him her situation is complicated also, and she could not get into a relationship with him. They hold hands, as an affirmation of friendship and Len, who has been watching, is angry. Michael convinces Marion to go to the court at lunch. Michael takes them to the canal, which Peter is not supposed to visit unless with the entire court as part of the trial. Michael points out that the main canal is not a great place to get rid of bloodstained clothes, as it is very public. He believes a small undercroft area that students use for smoking and hiding things would be a better place. It leads back into the river through a drainage system. Peter thinks this is ridiculous – the crime report states that 50 police scoured the area for 48 hours, they could not have missed the area. Michael is doubtful. Peter storms off, angry that he has been forced into doing something illegal during the course of a heavily publicized trial. Ranjit visits his son in prison. Duvinder breaks down and promises he didn't do it, he didn't want his father to suffer. Ranjit tells his son not to cry now, as it would embarrass the family. A prison guard watches but cannot understand, as they are not speaking English. As Duvinder is brought back to court, Cording receives the news he needs: Maria de Silva will testify. She tells the court how she was running through the heath when she tripped on a man lying down. He savagely attacked her with a stick and she ran away. She was severely affected by the attack and still bears scars – both physical and emotional. Her testimony is clearly effective in pleading Cording's case to the jury. A doctor who examined her on arrival at hospital tells the court that he examined de Silva's attack and found it contained many similarities to Maria's attack. The psychiatrist who treated de Silva's attacker, Thomas Haines, is brought into court. He claims Haines suffers from epilepsy, manic schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, and is a severely sick human being. Despite Lewis' objections, the psychiatrist tells the court that Haines would – if he found a sword – be compelled to pick it up and use it. Cording receives rare permission to bring back a prosecution witness, Detective Chief Inspector Shand. Cording asks why no one ever connected Thomas Haines to John Maher's death considering the attack on Maria happened within 20 minutes of the attack on Maher, and in the same area. Shand says they had one suspect already, and had no need to arrest another one. Cording is critical of this, and it appears that the jury is on his side. Shand argues that the evidence against Duvinder is overwhelming. Cording retorts that the conspiracy against Duvinder is overwhelming. With this new evidence, there are the usual complaints from the victim's family, and court is adjourned for the day. The protests are continuing as Marcia, Rose, Peter and the other jurors head home. Jeremy goes to meet Mark, and tells him Fiona would not like it if she found out. Mark tells Jeremy about his family, all of whom suffer from diabetes. Mark has always hated having to give his young children painful needles. A Company in Japan is selling a less painful method, which is about to enter the market, and Mark wants Jeremy to get involved, in what he insists will be high-profit and successful. Jeremy refuses because of what happened last time. Mark leaves, saying he only wanted to help, and Jeremy is left alone to ponder how desperately he wants his old life back. Johnnie attends his AA meeting, and afterwards, informs Eddie that his chances with Rose are gone. Eddie tells him that the right choice was made; however he may feel now. The rewards in the end will be great. Johnnie leaves the church, and Len, sitting in a car across the road, watches him go. Charles goes to see Elsie, and they go for a walk. He explains that he was too self-absorbed to listen to her before but now he understands that she wanted to talk. Elsie tells him that she has a brain tumor and needs to have surgery. Charles promises to come with her, as her son, so she can have someone for company. Elsie tells him that she had a son but had to give him up. She always wanted to be near him and has spent her entire life wanting to know where he is, and how he is doing. Charles tells her that he wants to hear the whole story. Johnnie arrives home to find his house unlocked. Inside, a hooded man bashes him with a baseball bat and walks off. It is Len.moreless
