Season 2, Episode 4: Episode #2.4

8 October 2009
With the trial a week away Alice tells Jack the defence case is weak. After a visit from Ella to see the new baby, Juliet finally admits to Jack about her husband's control and abuse and says she will tell the court, for Ella's sake.Jack also hopes to use Joe's possible involvement with a drug pusher, though Chris Sexton disproves this to his own satisfaction. His wife and Faber, however, are more sympathetic to Juliet and Mrs. Rose thinks Joe was too good to be true. The trial begins and Ella convinces the jury that she worked with her father only to help her mother, who was otherwise a danger to herself. Jack, however,gets her to admit that her statement differs from things she told other people and her evidence may be confused because she has an idealized view of Joe.

Season 2, Episode 5: Episode #2.5

9 October 2009
Juliet eventually takes the stand and starts to be more forthcoming. She points out that whilst her second pregnancy was not the result of a rape Joe had sexual demands and would bully her into intercourse, punishing her if she refused. She had the knife under the pillow for her own protection but did not intend to murder him. Thus she is presented with pleading to the lesser charge of manslaughter and the episode ends on the verdict and Juliet's consequent sentence.
