NINA RECONSTRUCTS THE PAST

On the eve of the trial, Nina’s unnerved when a piece of music transports her back to the last day of Seb’s life. Upon hearing from Roy that fragments of Nina’s memory are resurfacing, Abi gets an idea and brings to the cafe the bag of items found on Seb’s body.  Among the various bits and bobs, Nina’s struck by the sight of a plastic heart ring and remembers Seb giving it to her.

Nina decides to retrace her and Seb’s steps and takes Abi, Summer and Asha with her

to the wasteland where they encountered Corey and Kelly.  Across both of tonight’s episodes, in a series of specially shot reconstruction scenes, the audience is taken back to the night of Seb’s attack and the truth about what happened is revealed to viewers and to a distraught Nina as her memory returns. 

Meanwhile Kelly and Corey prepare for the trial and Imran plays mind games with an over confident Sabeen with both lawyers confident their own client is telling the truth, but which one is?

THE PIECES FINALLY FALL INTO PLACE FOR NINA

As her recollection of the evening comes to an end Nina cries having remembered her last moments with Seb and vows to go to the police to tell them what happened that night.

Alone in his cell, Corey remembers the aftermath of the attack, how he ducked into a ginnel to change into fresh clothes from his rucksack, stuffing his blood-stained tracksuit back inside and stashing it in a hiding place before returning for it later and tossing it into the river.

Imran and Kelly prepare to go into battle against Corey and Sabeen. 

Wednesday 1st September

Meanwhile as Seb’s final voicemail is played, Kelly hangs her head in shame, while Abi shoots venomous looks.

Asha enters the witness box and tells how Corey bullied her and forced her to lie to the police. When Sabeen questions if she’s still in love with Nina, what will she say?
