The Finchleys run the press gauntlet visiting Dee in hospital after she has rammed her car into Christina's house before meeting Zoe, Paul's barrister. For Marie the interview is unsettling as it probes the couple's sex life and, whilst she dismisses Karl's declaration of feelings for her, a chance encounter with sincere accuser Rebecca makes her wonder about Paul's innocence. Dee is also taken aback when Paul tells her how he was sexually abused by his father but agrees to stand by him at court. Written by don @ minifie-1

National Treasure 3
8 October 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

We can gather that both Paul and Marie are too wrapped up in themselves to deal with the issues facing their daughter dealing with drug issues and other traumas maybe associated with the past. Hence why they had that birthday party and needed, expected her to behave.

Now the lawyers are preparing for his defence. Marie is now unsure how much does she really know about her husband. How much infidelity was there? how much of it was consensual?

The strongest part of the episode is when Paul talks to his daughter Dee about his relationship with his violent father as a kid and a suicide attempt, realising that his father was getting turned on when beating him and Paul swore he would never turn out to be like his dad.

The lawyers and their investigator find some evidence that indicate Paul might be innocent of the accusations. All nicely set up for the final episode. There are doubts about Paul, is he innocent or did behave inappropriately?
