Storyline

Rosie receives notification of the court date. Finally Harry will be punished for what he did. But her relief is short lived when she realises she is alone in her crusade. Aisha won't attend the trial as it puts her in a difficult position with her family and Anouk won't testify as she's staying out of it. Even Hector wants nothing to do with it, and is only going because he's been summonsed. When Rosie starts to doubt herself her spirits are lifted by Shamira, a guest at the BBQ who contacts her and agrees to testify as a witness against Harry. Thrilled to have an ally Rosie tells Gary, but he hates that things have gone this far and pleads with her to let it go. Rosie refuses, she's in too deep, and Gary lashes out revealing his disdain for his wife. The day of the court case arrives and Gary and Rosie are barely speaking. Hector gives his statement, then Rosie, and then the prosecution annihilates her. Harry's lawyer assassinates her character, revealing that Gary is an alcoholic ...
