Full episode synopsis:
A retrospective episode that takes the viewer back 12 months.
Seconds after telling Dom (Liam Boyle) to run, Rachel (Suranne Jones) knows she can’t let him go, and calls 999. But even with the proof that she wasn’t at the murder scene, Rachel finds herself implicated as the brains behind the attack on Nick Savage. As the CPS decides not to press charges, the Police Complaints Commission pick up the baton, and Rachel is once again under scrutiny.
Struggling to cope with the doubt that surrounds her, Rachel finds comfort in the ever-faithful and supportive Sean (Sean Maguire). And maybe if she’d taken a step back, she wouldn’t have agreed to marry him…
Amidst the wedding celebrations and the blare of the karaoke, Janet (Lesley Sharp) and Ade (Tony Pitts) decide it’s time to admit defeat about their marriage. They agree to put their house on the market and to split when the sale goes through.
And as a sober Gill (Amelia Bullmore) gives Rachel her blessing and heads off into the night, she disturbs Pete (Tony Mooney) having sex in the car park of the wedding venue. And being a copper, she really can’t ignore it.
The story of the week involves the hunt for Adam Armitage (John Owen-Jones), a ‘nice’ middle-class businessman who is now a murder suspect, after shoving a homeless man who pestered him for money.
