The Drowning spoilers: Episode Two

When Jodie catches sight of Daniel, a teenage boy, she is convinced she has found her missing son. Whether she is right or not, in that moment her spark of hope is ignited and she commits to a dangerous and transgressive path that will take her to the edge of reason. How far will she go? How far would any of us go to find a missing child?

Episode Two

Jodie uses her private lesson with Daniel to try and look for proof that he is her missing son, but an interruption from Mark stops her in her tracks. His lack of enthusiasm in having her around is obvious, with him dismissing Jodie’s offer of future lessons. She’s frustrated to have not found more evidence, but it’s clear there is no mother around. Ade is under pressure from the document forgers to come up with more money for Jodie’s papers, but as Jodie tries to help she is interrupted by her brother, Jason (Jonas Armstrong).

After a family intervention to declare the missing Tom officially dead, Jodie’s urgency to prove Daniel’s identity increases. She continues to juggle her struggling gardening business and her new teaching job, much to the dismay of her business partner, Yasmin (Jade Anouka). An incident at school gets them looking deeper into Jodie’s background, but not before she takes the kids to a recording session, Daniel coming face to face with her ex-husband, Ben.
