Shae's death really upset me.
I don't know whether it's because of the coldness and callousness of the people around her, the fact that she was pregnant, or how well I've gotten to know her character over the last six episodes of American Crime, but the last five minutes of American Crime Season 3 Episode 6 made me cry and then made me really angry.
And that was only one of several disturbing things that happened in "3.06."
In a way, Shae's death was inevitable.
Kimara's idealism led her to believe she could somehow make things better for Shae, that she could get through to her sooner or later and turn her life around.
But Shae never really wanted to testify against Billy and didn't want to stay in the shelter. She ran away and found comfort and freedom in returning to sex work.

Louise Doughty’s psychological thriller revolves around a passion that leads to a trial for murder. Plus: the timely return of Homeland
Emily Watson’s character, Yvonne Carmichael, looks out of the window as the vehicle in which she is travelling crosses a bridge over the Thames in London. She reflects on human nature, on the choices we make, how fear turns us into animals. The Thames can make you reflect, although Yvonne has more reason to do so than most. She is not on a bus, but in a prisoner transport van, possibly operated by G4S. She is cuffed and on the way to court, to be tried for murder. So begins this four-part adaptation of novelist (and Christmas University Challenge finalist) Louise Doughty’s psychological thriller Apple Tree Yard (BBC1, Sunday).
How did it come to this? Nine months earlier Yvonne, a successful genetic scientist with a comfortable home life, »
