Further details

Charlotte decides that she's ready to return to school, but Alice feels lost without her and struggles to cope. Before the inquest into Harry's death can go ahead the police must identify the mysterious figure on the CCTV. With George becoming increasingly evasive, Alice is forced to go behind his back to get the answers she needs.

Charlotte starts speaking about her grief to the school counsellor and encourages her mum to find some help of her own. She agrees to give Nathan's bereavement group a try, but Alice isn't convinced it's the right fit for her, and the feeling seems to be mutual. She wants to be there for Charlotte, but Alice's increasingly irresponsible behaviour starts to cause a rift between them.

To Alice's surprise, the whole family show up at the inquest to offer their support, and answers about the night that Harry died finally emerge. Harry's parents might be welcoming to George, but their fragile truce with Alice is about to face its bigger test yet.
