Episode Summary

Claire tries to talk to Bex but she refuses to talk to her. Claire then tries to talk to Luke, she defends Pete saying that he is not a rapist and he simply misread the signals but Luke says she is deluded. Feeling ostracised and needing to speak to someone who believes in Pete she goes to see his ex-girlfriend Zoe at her house. Claire tells Zoe that Pete has been accused of rape. Zoe breaks down and reveals that he also attacked her. A mortified Claire breaks the news to Luke. She leaves work and rushes off to confront Pete at home. She tells him she wants nothing more to do with him saying ‘You’re no brother of mine, not anymore!’. Pete turns up at Bex’s house and forces his way inside. He threatens to make her pay for ruining his life and leaves her a terrified quivering wreck on the floor.

Irene and Stan come in, Stan’s condition is worsening and he no longer recognises his daughter Maggie. Later Stan goes missing and is found on the street with an injured hand. Irene tells Maggie she cannot cope with him anymore.

Josh is called to a house to treat a baby that is unwell. Whilst holding baby Abby he trips and falls. Abby is rushed to hospital but dies. The parents, Martin and Lynsey, blame Josh for killing Abby. Josh worries to Maggie that he harmed Abby but Maggie tells him there were no signs of injury. An investigation into Josh’s conduct begins. Martin confronts Josh, calling him a killer but then admits he had been drinking and had taken Abby to bed. When he awoke he realised he had smothered her. Josh is relieved to know it was not his fault.
