Rather than face Sean (Sean Maguire) and the glaring problem of her failing marriage, Rachel (Suranne Jones) continues to sleep at Janet’s (Lesley Sharp) and make excuses for her absence. But Sean isn’t stupid and when he demands that Rachel come home and tell him what’s really going on, he’s appalled to hear her say that she can’t ‘do’ marriage and wants her flat back. Not prepared to accept that it’s gone so wrong, so quickly, Sean vows to stay right where he is until Rachel’s finished doing whatever it is she has to do. And now that Sharon (Tracie Bennett) has wheedled her way back into Rachel’s life, she’s wreaking havoc in ways Rachel could never have predicted.
Whilst Janet would never make Rachel feel anything but welcome in her home, Dorothy’s (Judith Barker) disapproval of the rock’n’roll friend is starting to show. And of course, Janet knows that the only real solution lies in Rachel going home and facing the music.
Part 2 of the crime story. 
Having uncovered the remains of several bodies, Gill and Dodson’s teams are faced with the mammoth task of identifying them, and trying to piece together the order in which they were killed. 
Already facing a life sentence for the murder of his wife Eunice, Joe Bevan (George Costigan) is in no hurry to play ball. But when the remains of a teenage girl are discovered in an upstairs room, Helen (Nicola Walker) is faced with the possibility that her dad killed both her brother and her sister.  And as the press interest in Helen mounts, the need to find out who the mole is becomes imperative.
