Marcella is suspicious when van driver Ronnie Whelan reports his friend Beth dead and 6 year old daughter May missing. She eventually finds May, but she is dead also, bringing back painful memories for Marcella, though she and Jason combine to entertain their children. DNA on May's body leads to one of Henry's friends, Yann Haller. Stephen Callaghan evicts Bendek, who nonetheless blackmails him whilst, following Grace's funeral, Sylvie suspects that Barnes did not commit suicide and gets D.I. Tim Williamson to investigate. Marcella meanwhile is disturbed by an intruder. Written by don @ minifie-1

It is hard to watch. Marcella seems lonely at all. Her children are cold and far. Her husband just selfish. After Grace gone he neither love her nor free her. Her colleagues just start to understand her. She has good instincts but just bad anger manegement. Alsa blackouts turns her down. Learn about Marcella' s past away child. This part is surronded by murder, blackmail, threatening and drama.
